The terms and conditions specific to the domestic OSP are as follows:
- The domestic OSP is wholly permitted to terminate the PSTN/PLMN Connection, with the outgoing facility on the same EPABX, provided that the PSTN/PLMN lines shall be used for making calls through the normal NLD network only, and in no way, whether directly or indirectly, causes the bypass of the licenses National Long Distance Operator’s Jurisdiction. There should be a logical partition present in order to ensure that there is a separation between these two entities. While other forms of connectivity are allowed like lease circuit and a virtual private network, there should not be any call flow between the leased lines and the PSTN lines
- It is permitted for there to be an interconnection between two or more domestic OSP Centres of the same company
- Domestic OSPs are allowed to use the Integrated Services Digital Network connections. However, they are only allowed to do so for the purpose of backup leased circuits.
