A liberal licensing regime was put in place with a view to increase Internet penetration across the country. The New Telecom Policy 1999 envisaged opening up of internet Telephony where upon Government decided to permit ISPs to process and carry voice signals (Restricted Internet Telephony) with effect from 1st April 2002.
