India will definitely complete the 3-G auction process this fiscal itself, Sam Pitroda, adviser on IT to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, said.
"Concerned people have held discussions with the Prime Minister recently and it was assured that the auction would take place before end-fiscal," Pitroda told reporters here on the sidelines of the Dr Arun C Vakil memorial lecture conducted by the Indo-American Society in Mumbai today.
Pitroda said that no decision has yet been taken on divesting a 10 per cent stake in state-owned BSNL.
"The Prime Minister has set up a committee and it is looking into the matter. It will submit its recommendations soon. There are discussions but no decision so far," Pitroda said. Last week, Pitroda himself had said that the Government was looking at selling some stake in BSNL soon.
