Since you have not responded to my tweets or bothered to provide any further inputs, I write this open letter in response to:
- Your blog post regarding TUCC: http://www.virsanghvi.com/CounterPoint-ArticleDetail.aspx?ID=531
- Your Aritcle in the Hindustan Times regarding TUCC: http://virsanghvi.com/CounterPoint-ArticleDetail.aspx?ID=531&sms_ss=twitter
- My questions sent on Twitter to @virsanghvi: https://twitter.com/#search?q=ujwalm%20%40virsanghvi
While I lack your eloquence in the written word, I will try to put my point across as succintly as my skills permit. My two simple questions (that I have also asked you on Twitter) are:
- How long has it been that you have been registered on NDNC registry?
- What's been the response post the 45 day period of registering on the NDNC registry?
Based on the above self-answer to my questions, it definitely is evident that you are either not aware of the NDNC Registry process or have decided to turn a blind eye to those to write what in normal journalism consumer parlance would be called a sensational and hard-hitting article or you really have a problem. But considering my empirical tests; the probability of the third option is very low. Also, that brings me to a separate question; when you received TUCC, how many times have you taken the effort to complain to your telecom operator regarding this (that is after the normal 45 day stipulated period of NDNC registration)?
I would have much appreciated that along with the articles that you published; which, though a little self-gratifying are fine and acceptable in the normal course of freedom of speech. However, it would have been much more constructive had you participated in the Consultative Paper process and the Open House kept thereafter by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India. As did another gentleman from the fourth estate, who did give very pertinent inputs. Unfortunately, he is probably not as senior as yourself.
p.s. I still await your feedback on when you regsitered on the NDNC Registry and the outcome (after 45 days).
