The Telecom Dispute Settlement Appellate tribunal (TDSAT) has allowed 3G roaming services to the private operators, even though they do not have spectrum licence for those circles. The TDSAT has also cancelled the penalty imposed on these private companies who were illegally providing roaming services in areas where they have no spectrum licence, by sharing agreements with other private companies who have spectrum in those circles.

We feel that this decision of the TDSAT is to be challenged since this is in violation of the licence conditions. Further this decision will give undue favour to the private companies comparing with BSNL, which was compelled to pay for all the circles in full.
