The depart­ment of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions (DOT) has set Oc­to­ber 1, 2018, as the dead­line for test­ing and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of all equip­ment used by the op­er­a­tors, the Eco­nomic Times re­ported. “Any tele­graph which is used or ca­pa­ble of be­ing used with any tele­graph es­tab­lished, main­tained or worked un­der the li­cence granted by the cen­tral gov­ern­ment... shall have to un­dergo prior manda­tory test­ing and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in re­spect of pa­ram­e­ters as de­ter­mined by the tele­graph au­thor­ity from time to time,” the depart­ment of tele­com said. Tele­com net­works in the coun­try are gov­erned un­der the In­dian Tele­graph Act. The Act de­fines tele­graph as any ap­pli­ance, in­stru­ment, ma­te­rial, etc. ca­pa­ble of use for trans­mis­sion or re­cep­tion of sig­nals, writ­ing, im­ages and sounds or in­tel­li­gence of any na­ture by wire, vis­ual or ra­diowaves. “Th­ese rules may be called the In­dian Tele­graph (Amend­ment) Rules, 2017...They shall come into force on Oc­to­ber 1, 2018,” the no­ti­fi­ca­tion said.
