About TSDSI
I played a leadership role in setting Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI). Read my article in Economic Times on this issue.
The TSDSI was registered in January 2014 and now has more than forty organizations as members in less than a year. Since October 2016, I am the Chairman of TSDSI Governing Council. During 2014-16, I served as Vice Chairman. I am coordinating the overall operations of TSDSI in its formative years. In December 2014, TSDSI was recognized as one of the Organization Partners of 3GPP, a laurel that very few SDOs have achieved in a short span of only one year!
