In its petition, Bharti Airtel said the “decision of DoT is against the public interest as it adversely affects the interest of the customers and the subscribers who are benefiting from the 3G arrangements.”

“The impugned decision of the DoT is violative of the fundamental right under Article 14 (equality before law) of the Constitution as it is arbitrary, has no rational basis, is illogical and is contrary to the contract between the parties,” the petition said.

“The DoT's decision is contrary to the national and public interest,” the petition added.
