The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its order on petitions seeking cancellation of 122 licences of telecom operators who allegedly benefited in the 2G spectrum allocation scam during the tenure of former telecom minister A Raja.

A bench of justice G S Singhvi and justice A K Ganguly concluded its proceedings after hearing extensively from all the concerned companies, government and the petitioners.

In their joint petition, a group of civil societies,including an NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation alleged that the spectrum allocation, made by the DoT during Raja's tenure as telecom minister, was marred by "multiple illegalities, corruption and favouritism".
