Re­move li­cense fees, en­try fee, bank guar­an­tees and other con­di­tions on ISPs.

Broad­band ac­cess di­rectly im­pacts growth, and af­fects ed­u­ca­tion, health­care, en­ter­tain­ment, pro­duc­tiv­ity and ru­ral in­clu­sion. A 10% in­crease in Broad­band re­sults in in­crease of 1% in GDP. With less than 1.5% pen­e­tra­tion, In­dia lags other de­vel­op­ing economies. To achieve greater broad­band pen­e­tra­tion, li­cense fee, en­try fee, bank guar­an­tees and other con­di­tions should be re­moved for ISPs on pure Broad­band till 600 mil­lion con­nec­tions are reached.
