Cancellation of licences: TRAI mulls new guidelines for telcos
TT Correspondent |  |  13 Feb 2012

Keeping in view of the interests of the subscribers who will be affected in the face of the Supreme Court verdict canceling 122 spectrum licences allotted in 2008, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is mulling issuing guidelines to the telcos whose licences are set to be cancelled.


After the apex court order TRAI chaiman JS Sarma has said that the cancellation would affect around 5% customers and they could transfer to other networks under MNP.


According to sources, TRAI is believed to be looking into various aspects of the issues concerning the users such as selling recharge coupons and new connections by these telcos. The regulator is expected to take a decision on these issues soon. It said that these telcos have spent billions of dollars in their operation in the country including infrastructure.


Uninor (joint venture between  Unitech and Telenor of Norway), Loop Telecom, Sistema Shyam (joint venture between Shyam and Sistema of Russia), Etisalat DB (joint venture between Swan and Etisalat of UAE), S Tel, Videocon, Tatas and Idea are set to lose their licences following the apex court verdict.
