Delhi High Court on 27th May issued notices to Idea Cellular and its top executives including Chairman Kumaramangalam Birla for violation of its earlier order prohibiting the company from providing 3G service to customers in circles where it has not been allotted spectrum for the purpose.
The private companies like Idea,Vodafone, Airtel etc. have been providing the 3G services illegally in many circles with out allocation of spectrum through the licences of other companies. it is to be noted that BSNL was compulsorily allotted 3G spectrum in all circles and charged a hefty amount for the same, while these private companies by paying a small amount was providing service in all the circles.
The govt. should act strongly and cancel the licences of these erring companies instead of making compromises.
