The ongoing tussle between Apple and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India or TRAI seems to have no end. In the latest salvo, TRAI has threatened Apple with legal action.
What exactly is the fight over DnD issue? Why is Apple not giving up?
TRAI Planning To Take Legal Action Against Apple!
Recently, TRAI Chairman RS Sharma gave a presentation to Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha, over their plans to provide low cost, but high-speed WiFi across all over the country.
Data reselling is a decision which the Ministry needs to take now.
During the press-brief after the presentation, when someone asked RS Sharma about the latest update on Apple’s DND app issue, he made it clear that the case has deteriorated.
In a direct attack on Apple, RS Sharma has declared that legal action against Apple would be soon taken against them.
He said, “We will consider taking legal action,”
If this happens, then Apple will be required to fight against Government of India directly. Something they wouldn’t wish to happen, as they have some future plans for India. They want special status and leverage to manufacture, and if the legal tussle breaks in, then it would be tougher.
Government of India has already rejected Apple’s demands for their special status and privileges. - Trak
