Idea Cellular Seek Clarification From Supreme Court on 2G Licence Cancellation

By February 21st, 2012 AT 8:38 PM

Idea Cellular today filed clarificatory petitions in the Supreme Court regarding the apex court’s decision earlier this month canceling the 122 UAS licences.

In an official statement,The operator said “Arising from the Supreme Court Order of 2nd February, 2012, Idea Cellular has today filed a ‘clarificatory application’ with the Registrar, restricted only to the UASL applications made by Idea in June 2006.”

Idea further states that “As noted by the Supreme Court, the Idea license applications were covered by clause 23 of the UASL guidelines dated 14th December 2005, to be made on a continuous basis, and were required to be processed within 30 days of their application.

Factually, within the 30 day period, there was no other applicant. Idea’s license applications were unjustly delayed until 2008, otherwise they fall in the same category as other 2004 and 2006 UASL applications mentioned in the Judgment, but which do not form part of the cancelled licenses.”
