As per a leading financial daily, the Department of Telecom (DoT) has moved the Supreme Court concerning the 3G roaming pacts between Telecom companies. The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) had on 29 April 2014 overturned a government ban on telcos offering 3G mobile services beyond their licensed zones through roaming pacts TDSAT had stated that 3G roaming was in national interest as it would allow better utilisation of scarce radio frequencies. The DoT has appealed to the Supreme Court to get the ban implemented again. This case is important because the DoT had slapped a fine of Rs 12 bn on telcos like Bharti Airtel, Idea Cellular and Vodafone India for offering 3G services in the areas where they did not have a license via the roaming pacts.
