Most telecom stocks are trading higher today. Tata Teleservices and Bharti Airtel are leading the pack of gainers. As per a leading business daily, leading telcos have moved the Supreme Court, challenging the earlier Delhi high court order that allowed the Comptroller and Auditor general (CAG) to audit private telecom firms. The Association of Unified Telecom Service Providers of India (AUSPI), the lobby group for CDMA players, has moved the Supreme Court because it believes that the CAG being a government body should audit the accounts of the Department of Telecom (DoT) instead. Licence fees, which are paid by operators from their revenue, go directly into the accounts of the DoT. The DoT then sends the funds into the consolidated fund of India. Hence, AUSPI believes that it should be the receipts by DoT should be audited by CAG and not the revenues received by the private firms. Also a section of the CAG act does not allow it to audit private companies.
