India Regulator Who Took On Facebook Apple To Stay On For Two More Years

MUMBAI – Ram Sewak Sharma, the head of India’s telecoms regulator who took on global giants Facebook and Apple, has been given two more years in his assignment, which was due to end on Friday.

As chairman of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Sharma shaped rules barring internet service providers from having different prices for accessing different parts of the Web, in a setback to Facebook’s plan to roll out a pared-back free internet service.

He has also pushed Apple Inc to allow spam detection on the latest version of its iOS mobile operating software, used in iPhones.
