CHENNAI: The first bench of the Madras High Court has upheld the Cable Landing Stations Regulations (CLS) 2007  and the International Telecommunication Access to Essential Facilities at Cable Landing Stations (Amendment) Regulations, 2012. The bench of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice M Sundar, which upheld the regulations and the amendments made there under, however, quashed Schedules I, II and III of the CLS Co-location Regulations, as they have a direct impact only on the access facilitation charges, annual operation and maintenance charges and co-location charges. 

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India shall re-do and re-enact the three Schedules within six months after following all ingredients and determinants for subordinate legislation making, particularly, transparency and principles of natural justice, which have been built into sub-section 4 of Sec. 11 of TRAI Act, the bench added.
