are working against the company and trying to block its entry in the market Top News Ahead of the full-fledged launch of Reliance Jio’s services a high-decibel slugfest has started off between the new operator and the existing telcos represented by the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) While the COAI which largely represents existing telecom players has maintained that with a new entrant coming in some “sharp elbows” could be expected as the established players try to protect their market share Reliance Jio has argued that the existing players are working against the company and trying to block its entry in the market The telecom regulator Trai has also found itself being dragged into the corporate battle that seems to be escalating by the day For consumers though the ensuing battle could herald cheaper tariff plans and more deals in the coming months COAI’s stance The Cellular Operators Association of India which is the lobby group of mobile service providers including Reliance Jio has claimed that the latter is choking networks of its other members such as Bharti Airtel Idea Cellular Vodafone India and is offering full-fledged services to customers under the pretext of doing a trial run The lobby group has also written to Department of Telecommunications and said that all Reliance Jio connections should be stopped because the company is offering commercial services under the guise of test connections What does existing policy say As of date there is no policy distinguishing a test run from a commercial offering Earlier this month the Department of Telecommunications wrote to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s views on defining when an operator moves from offering trial services to commercial services However an industry observer said that Reliance Jio had not yet filed a tariff plan with the sector watchdog — something that is a must-do for all commercial companies — and by the virtue of them not filing the plan it could be assumed that Reliance Jio is not offering commercial services yet Choking of networks COAI has said that as per the agreements signed between its member companies and Reliance Jio the latter had estimated 15-20 million users on its network for which enough number of interconnection points were provided Point of interconnection is the physical linking between the network of one operator to the equipment of another thus enabling a subscriber of one operator to call a user of another operator COAI further claimed that because Reliance Jio is offering free services to its users the traffic generated is unnatural and even though there are only 15 million users on Reliance Jio’s network other operators were witnessing choking due to the unexpected traffic Reliance Jio’s side of the story Reliance Jio has argued that the existing telecom operators are working against the company and trying to block its entry in the market It has also claimed that the incumbents are in breach of licence agreement by having “categorically” denied additional points of interconnect to Reliance Jio It has claimed that the current number of interconnect points are inadequate and the company is seeing a call failure right higher than 65 per cent It has also claimed that this has resulted in 16 crore call failures per day on calls between Reliance Jio and the networks of Bharti Airtel Vodafone India and Idea Cellular Government’s position Both COAI and Reliance Jio have written to the DoT and the Trai presenting their points of view While Trai has said that the issue was something on which the call will have to be taken by the licensor which is the telecom ministry the COAI has pulled the regulator in by alleging that some decisions made by Trai “point to a pattern of discrimination against the existing mobile operators” COAI has written against Trai to not only the DoT but also to the Prime Minister’s Office For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top News The campaign to allow more foreign-born students earning advanced degrees in science technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) to live and work in the United States after graduation has typically embraced all STEM graduates and ignored which STEM degrees are most marketable But Congress seems to be waking up to the fact that life scientists probably face the stiffest competition for jobs The result is an emerging but below-the-radar consensus that foreign-born graduates in the biosciences should not be given the same shot at permanent residency as those in other STEM fields Last week the US House of Representatives came tantalizingly close to passing a STEM visa bill with such restrictive language The Republican-backed measure sponsored by Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) calls for a new employment-based visa category for up to 55000 STEM graduates each year It failed to clear the unusually high bar—a two-thirds majority—needed for passage after Democrats sapped support for it by introducing their own bill The floor debate on Smith’s bill—the Democratic alternative drafted by Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) was never brought to a vote—was highly partisan Democrats accused Republicans of secretly trying to reduce immigration by pointing to a provision that eliminated another visa program based on a lottery and language that prevented any unused STEM visa slots from being transferred to another visa category No legislator from either party mentioned the parsing of STEM fields that Smith had inserted into his bill But those who track the scientific workforce say that Smith is right to exclude those in the biosciences from qualifying for the new STEM visas "The people who wrote this bill seem to have done their homework" says Michael Teitelbaum a demographer and senior adviser at the Albert P Sloan Foundation in New York City "They have avoided the sledgehammer approach of saying that everybody in a STEM field is the same which is not true" An aide to Smith who chairs the House Judiciary Committee explained that the biosciences were excluded because "there is a very high unemployment rate in that sector already It doesn’t make sense to make it any harder" for US citizens looking for work in that sector the aide says Paula Stephan an economist at Georgia State University in Atlanta says that political recognition of those labor trends is long overdue "It is encouraging to see that someone is getting the message that the job situation is not that great in the biomedical sciences" says Stephan whose recent book How Economics Shapes Science explores that issue in some detail "To say unemployment rates are high is an exaggeration but the evidence is quite convincing that the job market for research positions for newly trained PhDs in the biomedical sciences has been less than robust for a number of years and has only worsened recently" The actual language in Smith’s bill excluding biosciences is obscure But it’s essential for understanding how the biosciences are excluded The legislation defines STEM as "… a field included in the Department of Education’s Classification of Instructional Programs [CIP] taxonomy within the summary groups of computer and information sciences and support services engineering mathematics and statistics and physical sciences" Each phrase corresponds to a different CIP code: Computer and information sciences and support services is CIP code 11 for example and engineering is CIP code 14 And none overlaps with the fields included in the biological and biomedical sciences which is CIP code 26 Zofgren’s bill contains identical language defining which STEM fields are eligible An aide says that was done to make her bill as similar as possible to Smith’s on topics in which the two legislators did not disagree A STEM visa reform bill that Zofgren introduced last year did not exclude the biosciences the aide notes A Senate counterpart to Zofgren’s bill by Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) also contains the same definition of STEM-eligible fields But the issue is apparently below Schumer’s radar An aide insisted to ScienceInsider that his boss’s bill dubbed the BRAINS Act does not exclude graduates in the biosciences But in the next breath he said: "We are going to work to fix that problem in a future bill by explicitly including the biological and biomedical sciences" To date the biomedical community has been silent on the exclusionary language A higher-education lobbyist who follows biomedical issues said shortly before the vote on Smith’s bill that her organization wasn’t even aware of the narrow definition of STEM fields and another said her organization had taken no official position on the issue A lobbyist for the biotech industry confessed that he wasn’t even tracking the legislation and that the exclusion had never come up in discussions with member companies That indifference reflects the tough job market for life scientists Stephan and Teitelbaum say "I’m not hearing from the biotech community that there is a shortage of applicants" Teitelbaum says "We don’t have good data on recent hiring but it sure doesn’t look like a booming industry" Stephan hopes that the pending legislation will have an impact on those even earlier in the STEM pipeline "Perhaps the language in this bill will send a message not only to international students but also to US students to think twice about their job prospects before committing to 7 years of training" she says The next Congress is expected to revisit the issue of STEM immigration reform giving Smith Zofgren and Schumer another chance to hammer out their differences But the question of whether to limit the eligibility pool to STEM fields with the highest market demand may already be settledwhich is what this has done, A party leader said Joshi defeated BSP candidate Mukhtar Ansari in 2009 by a margin of around 17, “Go to the High Court first. renovating 71 houses into pucca
