Thuraya/Irridium satellite phones in India


The use of Thuraya/Irridium satellite phones is unauthorized and illegal in India under Section 6 of Indian Wireless Act and Section 20 of Indian Telegraph Act. As the use of satellite phones without specific permission is illegal in India, whenever Thuraya/Irridium sets are detected to be in use, they would be seized and the holder can be prosecuted.
