The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is reportedly evaluating ways to arrive at a mechanism to determine the unique mobile subscriber base in the country.

As per the recently released TRAI data, India's total wireless subscriber base stood at 1,161.8 million as on March 31, 2019 while the wireless teledensity stood at 88.46 per cent. However, this subscriber number does not give the exact picture of those connected or unconnected as it takes into account multiple SIMs and phone connections.

Currently, the subscriber base is evaluated on the basis of the number of SIMs issued. However, one subscriber may have multiple SIMs. Therefore, the TRAI is mulling ways to correctly determine the number of people who are actually connected or unique subscribers.

The TRAI has reportedly begun discussions on the matter and is exploring different aspects of the complex issue.
