Message from the Incoming Chairman, Prof. Bhaskar Ramamurthi

Dear Members of the TSDSI and its Governing Council,

It is a privilege and honour to step into the role of Chairperson of TSDSI.

We have grown steadily since inception under the able leadership provided by the previous Chairs, Vice-Chairs and Governing Council members. The Executive has also done a commendable job, and today we are at the cusp of taking up greater responsibilities and roles in ensuring that India participates in and benefits from the global telecom standardisation efforts. I thank profusely the outgoing office-bearers for their unstinting contributions to TSDSI and look forward to their continued guidance and support.

Over the next two years, I look forward to working with the Vice-Chair, the Governing Council, and all members to pro-actively contribute to telecom standards in all their aspects both at the national and international level.

We look to our members to provide us the technical heft needed to take up such tasks and make significant contributions to ensure that the Indian public benefits maximally and at the earliest from new and innovative telecom technologies, and to enhance the “Make in India” mission of the nation.

We look forward to working with the government to ensure that the Indian telecom sector is at the cutting-edge, providing best-in-class service to the Indian public, and contributing globally to enhance telecommunications worldwide.

Please do not hesitate to pass on your suggestions for improving our productivity and contributions, and please work with us to increase our membership to include as many stake-holders as possible.

Prof. Bhaskar Ramamurthi
