Department of Telecommunications (DoT), Ministry of Communications (MoC), has extended Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Wireless Personal Area Network/Wireless Local Area Network (WPAN/WLAN) registration to all entities engaged in the said businesses. All business entities (incl. Companies, Govt. Deptts./Organizations, Partnership Firms, LLPs, Institutions, Undertakings, Proprietorship Firms, Societies and Trusts) engaged in M2M service provisioning and WPAN/WLAN Connectivity Provisioning are advised to register with DoT through a simple and transparent online process via SaralSanchar portal (https://saralsanchar.gov.in).

Non-compliance may lead to withdrawal or disconnection of telecom resources obtained from the Authorized Telecom Licensees.

The decision has been taken to extend the scope of the registration in order to proliferate the standard-based and secure M2M/IoT ecosystem.  This also addresses the concerns of M2M Service Providers and WPAN/WLAN Connectivity Providers for M2M services, related to interface with Telecom Service Providers (TSPs), KYC, Security, Encryption, etc.

The DoT is committed to ensure building a secure and innovative M2M/IoT (Internet of Things) landscape. National Digital Communication Policy aims at creating a robust digital communication infrastructure, enable next generation technologies and ensure a holistic and harmonized approach for harnessing Emerging Technologies such as M2M/loT.

After considering the recommendations of TRAI on "Spectrum, Roaming and Quality of service (QoS) related requirements in M2M Communications" and views of M2M industry stakeholders. the Government has decided to issue the guidelines for 'Registration process of M2M Service Providers (M2MSP) & WPAN/WLAN Connectivity Providers for M2M Services'.
