The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has cautioned the general public about telecom tower frauds.

Speaking at the consumer outreach program organized by the Bengaluru regional office of TRAI in Mangaluru on Friday, Shreenivas S Galgali, Advisor to TRAI, said that some people promise high rent for setting up telecom towers.

However, they vanish after taking money in the name of government fee or taxes from the land owners.

Urging the general public to be cautious, he said that TRAI has no role in the installation of such towers.

Galgali said TRAI has conducted 317 consumer outreach programs in the last three years and 96 programs are planned for 2017-18. – The Hindu Business Line
