They also questioned the watchdog's jurisdiction on an issue that extends beyond telcos.

In an interview with Times of India on Tuesday, Sharma accused Apple of being a "data colonizer" and "anti-consumer" as the US-based company did not allow customers to pass on details about unwanted calls and messages to authorities or their own mobile operators. Internet-based messaging services include WhatsApp and Hike.

So TRAI is in the process to begin a consultation process to help customers to clarify issues of privacy and security of data which flow's data through network telecoms. The consultation paper will mark the beginning of the consultation process.

Through the paper, Trai has pointed towards having a mechanism for regulating and governing data controllers, and has sought views on issues such as rights and responsibilities of data controllers and whether the rights of a data controller could supersede those of an individual over his/her data. The regulator will then hold open-house discussions, following which it will make recommendations to the telecom department, which will take a final call on implementation. "There are also questions of jurisdiction that need to be answered".

What should be the legitimate exceptions to the data protection requirements imposed on TSPs and other providers in the digital ecosystem and how should these be designed? It governs carriage, not content/data.

TRAI says it is important to establish the ownership of the data.

According to Sharma, use of the app is completely optional and sharing information from it is no different than using an app to share data with your bank.

What are the key issues of data protection pertaining to the collection and use of data by various other stakeholders in the digital ecosystem, including content and application service providers, device manufacturers, operating systems, browsers, etc? "The ownership should remain and shall remain with the consumer who produced the data". "Limit my right to information that is my property". In particular, what are the new capabilities that must be granted to consumers over the use of their personal data?

The regulator's app allows users to flag pesky calls and unsolicited messages directly to the regulator as it pulls out such details from messages and call logs.

Q. 2 In light of recent advances in technology, what changes, if any, are recommended to the definition of personal data?

The app is called "Do Not Disturb", and was launched by Trai in June 2016. "They have not done anything", TRAI chairman R.S. Sharma told The Times.

The regulator in the consultation paper on privacy, security and ownership of the data in the telecom sector has sought public views on data protection in relation to the delivery of digital services.
