Telecom stocks are trading in the green led by Bharti Airtel and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL). According to a leading financial daily, Bharti Airtel has suggested the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to deregulate mobile tariffs or continue with its policy to allow telecom operators to fix calling rates. The company has written this letter to the telecom regulator because the latter had sought responses from the industry on reviewing the policy of forbearance in telecom tariffs earlier this month. TRAI had issued a consultation paper after the recent 20% increase in call rates by various operators. The company has also warned against any kind of regulatory intervention as it may prove to be catastrophic for the very sustenance of the industry.
