This chapter discusses the policy and regulatory initiatives that were carried out in India so far. It includes those initiatives that were adapted since the telecom sector was liberalized, shortly after the 1994 National Telecom Policy and 1999 New Telecom Policy were introduced. It talks about the role played by the telecom tribunals and the telecom regulator in handling the current and potential areas of disputes. Some examples of dispute areas located in the telecom sector and the resolution methods that were adopted by the telecom tribunal and regulatory body are studied, along with the policy for economic liberalization of 1991. The chapter also reviews how the different regulatory initiatives of the various areas of telecom services helped in lessening the scope and incidence of disputes.
