As part of its annual security clearance procedure, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has notified all service providers to furnish details pertaining to appointment of foreign nationals in key posts in their respective organizations.

The move is in line with the revised guideline included in Press Note-3 which requires such appointments to be scrutinised on an annual basis by the home ministry.

Operators are also required to disclose details related to foreign collaborator, shareholding pattern for applicant company and investing company.
