My question is, do you think any new operator like uninor is interested in entering into Rajasthan by buying spectrum in these auctions.
And another question not related to auctions but regarding tata docomo. Why tata docomo.does not have its own network in jaipur only in rajasthan circle nd is not launching 3g in jaipur though they bought spectrum for offering 3g services in 2010.

After Day 5 Excess demand is in these circles:
Assam = 31
Delhi = 1800 MHz = 23
Uttar Pradesh (West) = 4

In Kolkata 900 MHz excess demand is 0. That means all 14 blocks have been sold.

Auction is going to end in probably 2 days.
