Introduction to OSP License

OSP stands for Other Service Providers referring to the service provided in the Telecommunication Industry which uses telecom resources. It involves BPO/call centers, e-commerce, telebanking, telemedicine,-education, and other IT enabled services. Department of Telecommunication under the New Telecom Policy (NTP) 1999 made it compulsory for OSPs using telecom resources to obtain License.

In February 2000 the Telecom Commission formulated terms and conditions with regard to OSPs. According to the terms and conditions OSPs should not provide switched telephony and are allowed to take telecom resources from authorized Telecom Service Providers only. Department of Telecommunication provides registration to telecom resources providing an array of services, which includes services like telebanking, call center and other IT enabled services.
