Meghalaya notifies Right of Way policy
TT Correspondent |  |  07 Jan 2019

Meghalaya has become a fourth North eastern state to notify the Right of Way rules aligned with the 2016 policy formulated by the Department of Telecom (DoT) to accelerate telecom infrastructure deployment.

The new norms will come into effect from 15th January 2019.

“The much-awaited state Right of Way rules have been notified by Meghalaya government on 21st December 2018 that are aligned with the Central government,” Tower and Infrastructure Providers Association (TAIPA) in a statement said.

The Delhi-based group represents infrastructure firms such as Bharti Infratel, ATC Tower Corp, GTL Infrastructure and Tower Vision.

North eastern states of Assam, Tripura and Arunachal Pradesh have already notified the RoW policy in conformity with the Union government.

“We would like to express our gratitude to Mr. Conrad Sangma and IT department of Meghalaya for prioritising the rollout of telecom infrastructure across the state by notifying the state Right of Way rules with enabling provisions,” Tilak Raj Dua, Director General at TAIPA said.

Dua added that other states like Manipur, Sikkim, Nagaland, and Mizoram should notify a state tower policy immediately to empower their citizens.
