According to the sources the discussions are expected to be chaired by the communication minister Ashwini Vaishnaw.

An official also said that the industry stakeholders and associations will be called to share their views over the roundtables. The official added that the ministry of communication had also received some representation to extend the deadline for the comment submission for the draft telecom bill, 2022.
