The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and Apple have been at loggerheads over a DND app that the telecom regulator has prescribed for all smartphone in the country. While Google has already made the app available on Google Play, Apple has not yet consented to add the app on the iOS App Store citing a possible breach of user privacy. Now, TRAI is seeking that all the telecom networks de-register iPhones from their respective networks as a penalty for not making the DND app available on the device. Meanwhile, the Indian Cellular Association (ICA) has opposed TRAI’s demands saying that the telecom regulator does not have jurisdiction over device manufacturers and should not allow “Access Providers” to regulate device manufacturers/devices or customers who possess such devices.
