3G verdict: DoT seeks legal advice

india Updated: Jul 08, 2012 21:55 IST

The Department of Telecom has sought legal opinion on whether to implement the split verdict of telecom tribunal TDSAT on validity of mobile phone operators offering 3G services beyond their licence areas under roaming pacts.

Immediately after the verdict was given by TDSAT, a senior DoT official wrote to Additional Solicitor General AS Chandhiok seeking his opinion on the legal position with respect to applicability of the order of the tribunal in view of the difference of opinion between the two members of the tribunal bench, chairman Justice SB Sinha and member Justice PK Rastogi.

The letter, written by senior deputy director general (access services) AK Mittal, also asked the additional solicitor general whether, if the order of TDSAT were not applicable, could the DoT take action against the service providers or was it "necessary or advisable to issue fresh show-cause notices?"
