, the apex industry association representing the country’s major Telecom, Internet, Technology & Digital Services companies, expressed deep concerns over the allegations levied by Infocomm, where it has accused the industry body of using disparaging remarks. In a statement, COAI said that the allegations are patently misconceived as all communications were issued in good faith and in furtherance of its duty as an industry association, inter alia, to call attention to regulatory decisions that are detrimental to the growth and development of the telecom sector and to seek the intervention of the Regulator.

“It is disappointing that one of our members has chosen to take legal action against the association. We believe the allegations are without merit and we intend to defend ourselves vigorously. COAI is well within its rights to hold and voice its views on regulatory and policy issues. The matter is currently sub judice and we are in the process of considering and evaluating our legal options. ” said, Rajan S. Mathews, Director General, COAI.

COAI stated that a clear, stable and predictable policy environment is the foremost requirement of any ‎regulatory regime that fosters industry growth and customer services. We hope that the legal authorities will take a more balanced view on this issue which may be impacting the relationship of the member and the association and also the entire industry.
