Unified licence Case: Vodafone moves Delhi High Court against DoT

By November 10th, 2014 AT 10:00 PM

vodafone-new-logoVodafone India has filed a petition in Delhi High Court alleging that the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is indulging in “arm-twisting” and “coercive” tactics by refusing to sign its unified licence (UL) till the telecom major unconditionally accepts the “restrictive” clauses in the licence.

The matter is likely to be heard tomorrow.

The company has contended in its plea that the DoT showed them a copy of the UL only on November 3rd and the company had on November 5th written to the government to remove the “restrictive clauses” prohibiting the telecom major from entering into Intra-Circle Roaming (ICR) pacts,” as per the report.

“DoT also informed that petitioners’ request for deletion of restrictive clauses in UL pertaining to roaming cannot be accepted. It said restrictive clauses in the UL takes away the rights already granted to the petitioner as upheld by TDSAT on April 29, 2014,” according to the petition.
