Location incredible . The dispute between the two parties began in 2010 when the Information & Communication Technologies Authority ( ICTA) emits Telecom Directive 03 . Thus, all international telephone operators were required to pay 25 U.S. cents in a Universal Service Fund and two cents in the Fraud Tracking Account. This per minute international call through their network to connect a call from abroad to a local subscriber .
The Fraud Tracking Mechanism ( FTM ) was used to detect the fraudulent operators to continue. Operators 'official' lament that there have been no prosecutions to date and that the mechanism is not functional. By mutual agreement , they all agree , except Mauritius Telecom to stop contributions from February 2011. But then, on 27 February, the ICTA went to court and demanded that operators are paying what the law intended. Currently , this amount would have exceeded Rs 150 million. Alone , an operator owes about Rs 80 million.
"The concern is that prices have fallen in the international market and operators continue to under- invoicing. This is why we want the FTM is started once and for all , "says Lindsay Morvan, director of the company TLC (Mauritius) .
But for operators, it is absurd to claim their money for something that does not work. However, a foreign provider , Telecom Enterprise , was hired to build the facilities. January 8 , the ICTA has disbursed Rs 62,532 588.75 to this company .
At the regulator , it is argued that the mechanism actually works . "The ICTA has a good idea of those who are under- invoicing, but our problem is that we need a new regulation so that we can support some elements to justice.
This is what the ICTA is working . This is the technical legal level, " says one to the ICTA .In a notice to the ICTA , served December 25 Hot Link MTML , T @ Media Ltd. , DCL and TLC (Mauritius) , all operators of international telephony, argue that "there is no justification for claim their payments on Fraud Tracking Account and the Universal Service Fund , " as the mechanism is not fully operational .For ICTA , these operators have had to pay under the terms of the law. " If this was not done , this is tantamount to fraud. The mechanism works and the case is before the courts. We await the judgment , "says one to the ICTA .
