NEW DELHI, Dec 15: Industry body Digital Infrastructure Providers Association (DIPA) has flagged “critical issues” faced by telecom infrastructure players in securing permissions for deploying infrastructure in Uttar Pradesh, particularly in Noida and Ghaziabad.

Raising the issue, DIPA’s Director-General T R Dua said that telecom infrastructure providers are unable to get permissions for deploying infrastructure in the state, especially in Noida and Ghaziabad.

This, despite applying over the online portal ‘Nivesh Mitra’, the single window system, providing all the necessary documents and depositing the application fee, the association said.

DIPA members include ATC Telecom, Indus Towers, Ascend Telecom, Summit Digitel, Sterlite Technologies, Crest Digitel, Suyog Telematics, Signotox Towers, iBus Infrastructure, Applied Solar Technologies (AST), CloudExtel and Pratap Technocrats.

According to the industry association, close to 1,000 applications are pending, where the members have already paid Rs 1,000 per application fee amounting to Rs 10 lakh which is non-refundable.
