The Telecom Disputes Settlement Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has declined to stay TRAI's order, according to which private mobile operators had to stop levying higher tariffs for calls made to BSNL and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) networks in some telecom circles. Rejecting a petition filed by the COAI seeking a stay on TRAI's order, TDSAT has said an interim order at this stage was not proper. COAI has opposed TRAI's directive, stating that the higher tariff was a result of the absence of direct connectivity to BSNL/MTNL networks and hence calls between their networks had to be routed like STD calls.

The government has, however, permitted direct connectivity between Mumbai and the rest of Maharashtra, Kolkata and West Bengal and similarly between Chennai and the rest of Tamil Nadu, and between East and West Uttar Pradesh.
