The Government of India has come up with one license for all telecom related services, referred to as a Unified License. Under unified license, the license holder can apply for ISP license for various areas. One must acquire a Unified License under which he will obtain Authorization for providing ISP services for a particular area. Hence, it must be understood that there’s no separate ISP license intrinsically. Instead, one must obtain ISP Authorization under the Unified License.
One company can hold just one Unified License, but can apply for multiple ISP authorizations of various areas. However, the tenure of such authorizations will run concurrently with the tenure of the Unified License, which suggests that each one authorizations are going to be valid only till the validity of the unified license.
To obtain an ISP license, you need a registered company under the businesses Act, 1956. you’ll go online to the Registrar of Companies’ website for more information on the way to register a corporation if you haven’t already registered yours.
Obtaining an ISP license is to understand/decide which category of license you need – category A, B or C.
In India, there are 3 different categories of licenses to become an online service provider, depending upon the City/State/Town/District/Village you would like to start out your ISP business in.
The 3 categories of ISP licenses are:
1. Class A (National Area)
2. Class B (Telecom Circle/Metro Area)
3. Class C (Secondary Switching Area)
Naturally, a category A ISP license would be quite expensive, followed by Class B & C respectively.
