The DOT has started the process for collection of fines from the private telecom companies which continued to use 2G even after the supreme Court Order date 2, February 2012. It is based on the order of the SC to collect fee from the companies for the use after the court order. Altogether DOT is expected to get Rs. 2,451 crores.
Of course, the private companies may go to the court, or better will influence the government to get the charges cancelled in the name of giving the ‘right signals’ to the industry.
