The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea by NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) seeking cancellation of Reliance Jio’s 4G licence on several grounds.

An apex court bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice R. Banumathi while dismissing the plea by the NGO CPIL left the matter on spectrum user charges to the government.

The NGO CPIL has contended that Reliance Jio Was given 4G licence for data services and not for voice telephony which it was permitted latter.

The judgement was pronounced by Justice Sikri.
