As per the then New Telecom policy (NTP) 1999, Service providers in India involved in providing services like tele-banking, tele-medicine, tele-education, tele-trading, e-commerce, call centres, network operation centres and other IT-Enabled services, using telecom resources were termed as "Other service providers". Other service providers are required to obtain OSP registrations from the Department of Telecommunications, in order to access infrastructure provided by various access providers for non-telecom services. As per the Terms and Conditions formulated in February 2000, these Application Services as offered by Other Service Providers or OSPs could take telecom resources from authorized Telecom Service Providers only and will not provide switched telephony.

The Department of Telecommunications has from time to time issued guidelines providing terms and conditions as applicable on OSPs. Over the years there have been ambiguities and interpretation issues emerging from these guidelines, as companies evaluate their compliance obligations. To address some of these queries and identify specific concerns related to the OSP regulations, NASSCOM invites you to an awareness and interactive session on the Other Service Provider registration.

The session would cover the following key areas of discussion emerging from the OSP guidelines:

  1. Overview of the Regulatory Framework
  2. Scope of the Definition of Application Services
  3. Infra sharing - Internet and Leased Line
  4. Financial Elements of OSP Registration
  5. Work From Home provisions
  6. Discussion on Current Challenges
