Telecommunication service providers will now have to pay government 10 cents levy for every gigabyte of data used by their customers as Parliament has passed the Telecommunication Amendment Bill.

Attorney General and Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says they had to bring this policy as revenue for the Telecommunication Development Trust Fund has significantly dropped.

This trust fund was established to collect levy that was charged on all incoming international calls and as a result of that government was able to raise funds that was later invested in the telecommunication sector.

It was met with mixed reaction from opposition members before it was passed.
