OSP License (Telecom)

Other Service Provider

About OSP License

Other Services Providers or OSP provide the “Other Services” that have grown so prevalent in this modern world of marketing. To be precise, these OSPs provide services like:

  • Tele-banking
  • Tele education
  • Tele-trading
  • E-commerce
  • Call Centres
  • Network Operation Center
  • Other IT Enabled services

As you can see, the OSP consist of IT services or Information Technology related services. Now, in order to engage with such businesses, you would need telecom resources by an authorized telecom service provider, infrastructure and a lot of other legal entities. The main entity among them is the OSP License. This license is provided by the Department of Telecommunication. Anyone who seeks to start an OSP Center has to get the OSP License to engage with any sort of OSP related business. Furthermore, the applicant of this OSP License should be an incorporated business entity. It means that the applicant should have a company registered under the Companies act 2013. Why? It is because this company is the one that becomes the face of OSP.

Registrationwala can assist you with obtaining the OSP License within a span of 60 days. This is not just our guarantee, it is our pride.
