Oct 19 Top Indian telecom carrier Bharti Airtel
will bid in an upcoming auction of mobile phone
airwaves, said a company source, who declined to be named as the
matter is not public yet.
The airwaves auction is the result of a Supreme Court order
to revoke permits issued in a scandal-tainted sale in 2008.
Bharti Airtel is not affected by that court order but it could
be looking to buy additional spectrum.
Friday is the deadline for companies to submit their
application to participate in the auction, which is scheduled to
start on Nov. 12.
