Khullar says spectrum price has not caused grief to telecom industry- report
TT Correspondent |  |  16 Aug 2012

Reacting to the media reports that the telecom industry is not happy with the minimum spectrum price set by the government, Rahul Khullar, chairman of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said that he was not told by the industry that it was disappointed.

“Industry has not come back to me on the issue of TRAI’s decision to fix reserve price at Rs18,000 for spectrum once it was put on in the public domain,” DNA quoted him Khullar as saying.

The industry has all along been saying the minimum spectrum price proposed by Trai will reduce the margin and will force them to hike the call tariff.

Government recently has decided to reduce reserve price for 2G spectrum from Rs18,000 crore to Rs14,000 crore.

Participating in an interaction programme organised by the Federation of Karnataka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI) on Monday, Kullar said that the price of spectrum has not caused a grief to the telecom industry.


“They did not bring it to my notice during meetings,” he said.
