The government will soon bring out guidelines to stop illegal phone tapping in the light of complaints from some politicians that people were eavesdropping on their telephonic conversations.
"We are loking into the system as the secutiry of the nation and privacy of an individual is a matter of concern," TV Ramachandran, Director-General of Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) told reporters after a meeting with Home Secretary VK Duggal in New Delhi.
He said there was no need to change the Indian Telegraph Act but there was a need to fine tune and improve it. There will be new telecom guidelines soon, he said.
In an hour long meeting with the Home Seceratry, Bharti group's Rajan Bharti Mittal said the meeting was very positive and all operators are ready to cooperate with the government.
