Satellite phone in India

Submitted by Navin Pathak on Tue, 08/18/2015 - 8:51pm.

Carrying a satellite phone without permission is strictly prohibited in India.

There is a clear rule in India which bans the use of satellite phones and even if foreigners coming in with valid documents permitting them to carry such phones, the Indian authorities reserve the right to deny them such permissions. When persons with satellite phones land in India, the mandate is that the phone is first seized by the customs. Only after they obtain a licence from the department of telecommunications, can they clan claim their phones back. (source: Rediff)

For permission, contact Department of Telecommunication at Room No. 1204, Sanchar Bhavan, 20, Ashoka Road, New Delhi - 110 001.
