Telecom operators, assuming the Delhi High Court order to be in their favor have decided to ignore Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s  (TRAI) directive to pay compensation for call drops.

TRAI implemented the call drop compensation from January 1, 2016 under which telcos are to compensate the consumer Re 1 per call upto 3 dropped calls per day.

The top telecom companies plan to ignore this directive till the court gives a final decision on the case.

After the first hearing in December 2015, the Delhi High Court had asked TRAI not to take any harsh action against telcos in case of non-compliance till the next hearing, which is scheduled for January 6, 2016.

However, telecom operators have opposed this idea saying that it will bring forth huge loss and has many exploitable loopholes that need to be addressed before implementation.
