According to Manoj Sinha, Minister of State for Communications (independent charge), show cause notices have been issued to Idea Cellular and Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) due to non compliance of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI’s) drop call rate (DCR) benchmark for the quarter ended September 2018. The show cause notices had been issued to the operators on January 18, 2019.

As per TRAI’s latest report for the quarter ended September 2018, all telecom service providers (TSPs), except Idea in four License Service Areas (LSAs) and BSNL in one LSA, are complying with the drop call rate (DCR) benchmark despite rapid increase in traffic volume and more stringent benchmarks As a result, the show cause notices have been issued to the two operators to explain their position including the reasons for their non-compliance.
