Indian mobile operators such as Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Essar on Tuesday withdrew their plea to the telecom tribunal over the regulator's proposals to slap new fees on second-generation (2G) spectrum, a lawyer said.

Petitions filed by leading operators seeking to overturn the sector regulator's proposals to slap new fees on 2G spectrum has been withdrawn, C A Sundaram, one of the lawyers representing the operators, told reporters.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) earlier this month called for firms to pay a one-time fee for 2G radio-spectrum with high bandwidth they won several years ago based on 3G spectrum price, a move that could see established operators paying billions of dollars.
