New Delhi: The new telecom bill is expected to be in place in 6-10 months but the government is not in a hurry, communications minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said on Friday.

“Basis consultation process, we will create the final draft. That draft will then go through committee processes of Parliament. Then it must go (to) Parliament. I see a timeline of 6-10 months, but we are not in a hurry,” Vaishnaw said when asked about a timeline for the implementation of the final bill.

The Department of Telecommunications has set the deadline of October 20 on the draft bill.

The bill seeks to replace three laws: the Indian Telegraph Act, 1885, the Indian Wireless Telegraphy Act, 1933, and the Telegraph Wires (Unlawful Possession) Act, 1950.

However, with a view to ensuring a smooth transition to the new framework and avoiding any possible disruption, the bill provides for continuity of actions taken under the repealed laws.

It also provides that rules under the repealed laws would continue till such time that new rules are formulated.
