Tata Teleservices seeks review of SC judgment on licenses cancellation news
29 February 2012

Tata Teleservices Ltd is seeking a review of the apex court's judgment cancelling its licences for the 2G spectrum.

The company was allotted spectrum during the tenure of former telecom minister A Raja, in three circles and is moving the Supreme Court with a review petition filed nearly a month after the court on 2 February cancelled 122 new 2G licences granted to nine telecom companies including Tata Teleservices Ltd.

According to the company, it had applied for the licences over 18 months before the 2008 licensing process began.

Under the court's direction the licences for the radio waves would be sold through auction.

A bench of justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly (since retired) had also imposed a heavy cost of Rs5 crore on Tata Teleservices Ltd, Etisalat DB Telecom Pvt Ltd (Swan Telecom Ltd) and Unitech Wireless Group. Further the court said the companies had benefited by a "wholly arbitrary and unconstitutional" action of award of licenses to them.

Licences were granted to Tata Teleservices for three circles in Assam, North East and Jammu and Kashmir.
