Bharti Airtel Chairman Sunil Mittal has entreated sectoral regulator TRAI to undertake a long-term imaginative and prescient for the enterprise and not method guidelines in "suits and begins" or reactive way.

He stated that it's far the responsibility of the regulator to make sure that there's "amicable co-lifestyles of operators, less noise, and extra work" inside the system.

"My view on this is that the regulator desires to have an extended-time period imaginative and prescient for this enterprise. You can not be doing matters in suits and starts. an excessive amount of-of interest is going on in a reactive manner," Mittal instructed reporters on sidelines of the cellular global Congress.

He changed into responding to a specific question on TRAI lately looking for enterprise's views on promotional offers and predatory pricing.

TRAI final month got here out with a consultation paper to study the guidelines of tariff evaluation close to promotional offers and predatory pricing, problems that have induced a public spat among incumbent operators like Bharti Airtel and newcomer Reliance Jio.

these contentious troubles might be debated as a part of a consultation paper on 'Regulatory principles of Tariff assessment' issued via TRAI.

Mittal stated he's glad that TRAI has shaped a set of experts, consisting of representatives from the enterprise to examine long-term roadmap for the industry, such as on troubles like interconnect, price lists and predatory pricing.

"TRAI is coming alive to some problems and putting a committee of stakeholders to pop out with pointers can be an excellent final result. I hope while the guidelines come they don't land us in further spots of litigation, however, that they're futuristic, visionary and take care of all stakeholders," he said.

For PM's imaginative and prescient of virtual India to be realised to the fullest extent, telecom has to be on the centre stage of that vision, Mittal said.

"some stuff if being finished by means of TRAI but all I would say is do not do it in on fits and begins, have a complete method. Mittal said.
