The Telecommunications Act, 1997 is being amended by the National Telecommunication Authority (NTA) to make it more contextual and friendly to the telecommunication industry in Nepal.
Telecommunications Act are required to be relevant to different new telecommunication issues that have emerged in recent years. The new Company Act, which was endorsed by the parliament in March, made it mandatory for private telecommunications service providers that have paid-up capital of more than Rs. 50 million to convert to a public company within the next two years. So, NTA now had to amend the Telecommunications Act as this Company Act must be addressed in Telecommunications Act for its implementation.
A separate committee has been formed at the Ministry of Information and Communication (MoIC) to make the changes required in the Act. Min Prasad Aryal, spokesperson for the NTA said, “The committee is currently preparing an amendment draft of the Telecommunications Act. As soon as the draft is ready, NTA will forward it to the Cabinet for its endorsement.”
