Tata DOCOMO Will Get 4.4 mhz GSM Spectrum in Delhi Circle

By November 3rd, 2012 AT 4:02 PM

There is some good news for Tata DOCOMO GSM Mobile services users, Govt of India has decided that Tata Teleservices will be given 4.4 mhz 2G spectrum for GSM services (in the 1800 MHz band) in  Delhi circle after the completion of the current 2G spectrum auction process.

With this new development, Tata Teleservices will get 4.4 mhz of spectrum in Delhi & NCR circle, four years after having paid the required licence fee. The pending spectrum will be alloted to TTSL  without either participating in the auction or paying the auction-determined price. 

Earlier in July 2011, the TDSAT had also hauled up the India’s Telecom Ministry for delaying the allocation of start-up 2G spectrum to Tata Teleservices in Delhi -NCR circle for more than three years.

In November 2008, Tata Teleservices get pan-India license to operate GSM telecom services in 19 telecom circles out of 22 and has also been allotted spectrum in 18 telecom Circles, except Delhi. The company rolled out GSM services with brand name – Tata DOCOMO in all of these 18 telecom Circles in the quick span of just over a year.

In 2007 – 2008, Telecom Minister A Raja granted 122 New licences and 35 Dual-technology Licences (UAS), there were three companies – Videocon, Uninor and TTSL (Tata Docomo) that could not get spectrum in the Delhi circle because of non-availability.

So now we can expect commercial launch of Tata DOCOMO GSM Mobile services in Delhi circle in January 2013 or in first quarter of 2013.
