Govt approves Chinese telco gear orders

This year, India barred some local mobile phone operators from placing orders with Huawei and ZTE on security concerns, resulting from its suspicion that Chinese equipment might have spying technology embedded to intercept sensitive conversations and government communications.

A source said Tata Teleservices, which had applied for government approval to buy telecom gear from Huawei and ZTE, received the goahead after the Chinese firms accepted all the conditions set by India. “They (Huawei and ZTE) have said they agree with all the new terms and conditions, after which the government cleared applications,” the source said.
