Designate a nodal officer for security queries: DoT to telcos

"The department of telecommunications (DoT) has directed that each mobile operator has to designate a nodal officer, who will be responsible for providing information regarding the telco’s network to the national cybersecurity coordinator, whenever sought.
The DoT has already amended the telecom licence of the telecom operators to make it mandatory for them to procure equipment from only trusted sources, the list of which would be made known by the government. This directive comes into force on June 15."
