·         To start with these details will be provided for specified mobile numbers.  However, within a period of 3 years location details shall be part of CDR for all mobile calls. 
Note 1: Depending upon the technological development the limits of accuracy could be modified any time in future.
The service providers are at various stages of implementing the mandated accuracies. However, no service provider has been able to complete the work and send final compliance.
Mobile Service Providers had asked for certain clarifications, which have been provided to them. Telecom service providers have been raising the issue of financing the implementation of these. However, it has been indicated that the system has to be implemented by TSPs at their cost. They have also raised the question of implementability of the stipulated accuracy levels. Information regarding whether they have raised any issues with TRAI is being collected.
The issue is being examined by TEC, the technical arm of the department. Suitable decision will be taken after the receipt of the report from TEC.
This was stated by Shri Milind Deora, the minister of State in the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology in response to a question in Lok Sabha today.
