Telecom Commission (TC) to send back Trai’s recommendations on 3G spectrum pricing for reconsideration
– 7th Jan 2015
Inter-ministerial panel Telecom Commission (TC) has decided to send back Trai’s recommendations on 3G spectrum pricing for reconsideration. Reportedly, TC discussed Trai’s proposals on 2100 MHz band base price, used for 3G services, in its meeting and decided to send back the recommendations for a review. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India(Trai) on December 31 had recommended a base price at Rs 2,720 crore per megahertz. An internal committee of the Department of Telecom ( DoT) is believed to have suggested fixing base price of 3G spectrum at Rs 3,899 crore per megahertz, about 43 per cent higher than the rate recommended by Trai.
