New Delhi: A bill to amend Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Act was introduced in the Lok Sabha Friday amid ruckus.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority Amendment Bill will pave way for the appointment of former TRAI chairman Nripendra Misra as principal secretary to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The bill replaces an ordinance brought by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government, to amend the act which prohibited its chairman and members from taking up any other job in the central or state governments after demitting office.

Misra is a 1967-batch retired IAS officer of Uttar Pradesh cadre and his appointment as principal secretary will be co-terminus with the term of the prime minister or till further orders, according to an order issued by the Ministry of Personnel.
