India (Country Telecoms Regulation Overview)
The Indian telecoms market was liberalized in 1998 and has since grown rapidly to become the second-largest telecoms market in the world in terms of subscriber base.

The overall growth of the market is primarily driven by mobile services, which continue to experience rapid uptake. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has actively contributed to the overall competitive landscape in the mobile market by encouraging the entry of new players, which has resulted in a total of 14 mobile service providers operating in India. The TRAI is taking several other initiatives to encourage competition, including the introduction of mobile number portability (MNP), which is expected to be implemented in the second half of 2010, and the recently completed auction of 3G licenses. These developments are expected to benefit end users by fueling competition among operators and putting further downward pressure on tariffs, which are already among the lowest in the world.
