Minister (Sinha) then directed telecom operators to resolve PoI issue among themselves at the earliest,” the source said.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has recommended to impose Rs 3,050 crore penalty on Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular holding them responsible for congestion in RJIL network.

The meeting, which lasted for more than two hours, was attended by Bharti Airtel MD and CEO Gopal Vittal, Vodafone India MD and CEO Sunil Sood, Idea MD and CEO Himanshu Kapania and Reliance Jio Director Mahendra Nahata.

Trai Chairman RS Sharma asked them to mutually resolve interconnection issue at the earliest and warned action against those found liable for poor service quality benchmark around network congestion, call drop etc.

The incumbent operators received no respite from Trai on penalty of Rs 3,050 crore recommended by it.

According to sources, Sharma asked them to look at present and future plan of action to resolve quality issue in networks.
