Vodafone Group Plc Likely To Be Asked To Pay Another INR5490 Million For Using 3g Spectrum In 11 Circles-Business Standard


Sunday, 14 Jul 2013 02:35pm EDT 

Business Standard reported that the department of telecommunications (DoT) is likely to ask Vodafone Group Plc's Vodafone India to pay an additional penalty of INR5490 million for using third-generation (3G) spectrum in eleven service areas, which was allocated to another company, through intra-circle roaming (ICR) agreements. In a recent audit, R B Sinha, director general of audit (post and telecommunications), has noted that since Vodafone Group has been earning revenue using the spectrum allotted through a bidding process to another operator, the Company should be made liable to pay, as penalty, a proportionate amount of the bid amount paid by the successful bidder, for the period of their use of 3G spectrum. This penalty, which works out to INR549o million for the period between September 2010 and March 2013 (INR183 million a month, as the total bid amount was INR4.392 billion for eleven service areas for twenty years), should be in addition to the INR5500 million already proposed by DoT for breach of licence conditions, according to Sinha’s audit note. Under the licence conditions, operators need to pay a percentage of the adjusted gross revenue (AGR) as spectrum usage charges, it added.
