Indian regulator recommends cancelling 38 licences
|13 декабря 2010|
India's telecom regulator has proposed cancelling 38 licenses of telecom operators, including the Indian joint ventures of Telenor ASA, Emirates Telecommunications Corp. and Sistema JSFC, India's junior communications minister said.
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, or TRAI, has also recommended the cancellation of 31 more licenses, but only after legal examination.
Most of the licenses proposed to be cancelled by TRAI belong to the group who were issued licenses in January 2008.
The regulator has proposed the cancellation of licenses of Aircel Ltd. for four service areas; Loop Telecom Pvt. Ltd. in 14 service areas; Etisalat DB Telecom Pvt. Ltd. in two service areas; Sistema Shyam Teleservices Ltd. in 10 service areas and Unitech Wireless Ltd. in eight areas, Sachin Pilot told lawmakers in the upper house of Parliament.
Legal examination could also lead to further license cancellations, including one each of Aircel and Sistema Shyam Teleservices, 13 of Etisalat DB Telecom, six of Loop Telecom and 10 of Videocon Telecommunications Ltd., the regulator said.
"It is proposed to take necessary action after verification of data and after taking legal notice," Pilot said in reply to another lawmaker's query.
The recommendations for cancellations come in the wake of the Indian government's efforts to try and clean up the telecom sector, which has been mired in allegations of corruption and fraud.
To a separate query, the junior minister said the Department of Telecommunications hasn't received any request from new telecom operators in 2008 regarding the surrender of their license or bandwidth.
