TRAI calls for papers on mobile apps

The regulator has proposed holding a national forum on mobile applications to enable stakeholders to present project ideas, policy papers and case studies.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in association with The World Bank, has proposed a national forum on mobile applications in April. The proposed National Forum on Mobile Applications for Inclusive Development and Sustainable Development will offer an opportunity to all stakeholders to present project ideas, policy papers and case studies related to mobile applications.
Speaking to Telecom Yatra, DK Agrawal, deputy advisor, TRAI, said, “It would be a platform to discuss the present and future of mobile applications. The world is moving from fixed to mobile and applications that were available online are now being made available on mobile phones. Mobiles are affordable as compared to computers and in India mobile phone subscribers are growing at a fast pace.”
He added, “Based on the discussions (in the forum), we will think of relevant policies and regulations. TRAI, Reserve Bank of India and the DoT (Department of Telecommunications) will surely think of policies based on forum’s outcome.”
As per a statement on TRAI’s website, selected papers from the conference will be considered for publication. The statement also gives details on how interested parties can present their proposed papers. The last date for final paper submissions is March 26.
The statement adds that the proposed topics for the Forum are: High level overview of mobile applications, present status of e‐governance practices and synergy required for mobile governance, international experience in development of mobile applications to provide public services and challenges, mobile banking and m‐commerce, tele-medicine and e‐health applications, mobile applications for education and agriculture.
