The WPC (Wireless Planning & Coordination) is the national broadcasting authority and is part of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. It was founded in 1952 and has its headquarters in New Delhi, as well as other regional offices in Mumbai, Chennai, Calcutta and Guwahati.

The main tasks of the WPC are the issuing of amateur radio licenses and the allocation and monitoring of the frequency spectrum.

Additionally, WPC is responsible for the WPC ETA Certification (WPC Equipment Type Approval ETA) and other wireless certifications.

How do I get the WPC license?

The WPC certification process is relatively simple compared to other certification types and can be completed within 2 to 3 months. After the application, the applicant has to submit RF (Radio Frequency) Test Reports which have to be issued by an accredited testing laboratory. Until 2020, it was possible to conduct these tests abroad and use these reports. However, since the beginning of 2021, international test report are no longer accepted and hence, tests have to be conducted locally in India. A factory inspection is not necessary for the WPC (ETA) Approval.

An issued WPC license is valid for the entire product lifetime. In case of a product modification a new license must be applied for.
