3G issues resolved :Sibal
The government on Wednesday said the guidelines for Gen Next mobile services (3G) that include video calls will be issued soon addressing all security concerns raised by Home Ministry. “3G issue is almost resolved, soon you will be able to see new guidelines,” telecom minister Kapil Sibal said. The comment from Sibal comes a day after home minister P Chidambaram sought to downplay problems in beginning the 3G mobile services saying the telecom operators can roll out 3G telephony while working on the modalities to provide monitoring facilities to the security agencies. DoT and Home Ministry were working together in putting in place some rules and norms for intercepting or monitoring of 3G transactions in interest of national security, Chidambaram had said.
