The presence of Maritime Approval is proof that wherever we go, the internet will stay relevant. Ever since Indians faced the reality of “work from anywhere” because of the pandemic, they require interconnectivity in all spaces. The government responded to it and started drafting regulations for IFMC. In this article, we discuss the perks you gain upon obtaining these approvals.
Connectivity to the internet is not just a vanity anymore. It is a requirement for most modern as well as traditional enterprises. As lockdown (or the lack of it) has made people huddle inside their homes, the only way they can hold on to their jobs is to work remotely. However, since work has become a priority, remote work is not enough.
People should be able to work from anywhere. Thus, they always need the internet wherever they are. Thankfully, the government of India understood that requirement.

But the perks of getting this approval don’t end here. Let us discuss what you have to gain when you obtain the approval to provide maritime connectivity everywhere.
Increasing your client base
One benefit that becomes apparent pretty fast is the availability of more clientele. Conventionally, an internet service provider has static beneficiaries – meaning the subscribers that just stay at one place. However, with the approval to provide internet access on ships and on airplanes, their client base will start to entail people on the move. As a result, the collective passive income they generate will take their service-providing capabilities to the next level.
Enhancing the technologies
The Telecom industry of India is going through a technological renaissance. However, not every Telecom Service Provider is receptive towards it. Years of providing their services in the way to the same people have made them complacent. As a result, it has become painfully apparent that we need to force certain sections of the telecom sector towards innovation. Maritime approval is just the right recipe to do so. The allure of providing internet to the man on the move is just the incentive they need to push their services forward.
Going beyond your region
While it is true that only those with NLD License, ISP License, or CSAT service licenses have the permission to obtain maritime approval, it is also true that the area within which they have permission to provide their services is limited. Maritime approval removes that limit. By getting the license, you can provide your internet facilities on Indian territorial waters and Indian airspace.
Companies can gain maritime approval
When the concept of IFMC approval was initially realized, only high-end internet service providers had the permission to provide the service. However, since then, the Department of Telecommunication has had a change of heart. They are now allowing companies, other than airline and shipping companies, to provide internet services. All they need to do is sign an agreement with an ISP or a TSP that provides internet services and they too get the permission to obtain maritime approval. Read More: Trademark Restoration
