Fraud Tracking Mechanism - Operators Are Rs 150 Million To The ICTA

7 years, 9 months ago - October 21, 2013
ICTA calls over Rs 150 million in five international telephony operators as arrears to allow the operation of the Fraud Tracking Mechanism. They accuse him of having spent Rs 62.5 million for a mechanism that does "not work".

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 .
Under-invoicing
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 .
