The DoT has further sought detailed recommendations on framework for cloud industry bodies.

The regulator has sough public views on threshold parameters for companies to mandatorily become a member of the cloud industry body, fees that should be levied on members, governance structure, among others.

Last date for comments on the paper is November 20 and for counter-comments it is December 4, 2019.
