With the telecom sector becoming a potential security threat due to use of imported equipment, the government has proposed that service providers employ only Indian nationals in sensitive positions like Chief Technical Officer and Chief Information Security Officer.

The licensee shall employ only Indian National as Chief Technical officer, Chief Information Security Officer, Nodal executives for handling interception and monitoring cases and System Administrators.

In the draft amendment of licences related to security concerns, the Telecom Ministry has also said that a penalty of Rs 50 crore will be levied for any security breach which has been caused due to inadvertent inadequacy in precaution on the part of the telecom firm.
