The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has amended the Indian Telegraph Right of Way Rules (RoW), permitting laying overhead optical fibre cable (OFC). This is applicable to all digital infrastructure (including Digital CATV & Broadband distribution).
“These amendments will ease RoW-related permission procedures for establishment and augmentation of digital communications infrastructure across the country,” a statement issued by the DoT said.
The amendment prescribes a one-time compensation of Rs 1,000 per kilometre for laying overhead OFC.
