The telecom department has asked telecom service providers to provide access to monitoring of mimimum of 30 calls simultaneously to each of the security and law enforcement agencies . Presently there are nine designated security and law enforcement agencies.

In each of telecom service area, DoT wants telecom operators to have capacity of monitoring total of three thousand calls.

The government has asked telecom operators to provide all the arrangements and expenses related to engineering, maintenance and installation of hardware and software for monitoring of calls, which should be borne by the company.
