Telecom companies seek open court hearing in SC on AGR review pleas

Telecom majors, including Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea have sought an open court hearing of their plea seeking review of certain Supreme Court directions on the recovery of past dues.

These dues from telecom service providers amount to 1.47 lakh crore rupees. The recovery of past dues by the government was based on adjusted gross revenue (AGR) of about 92,000 crore rupees.

The plea seeking an open court hearing was mentioned before a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra today. He said he will talk to Chief justice SA Bobde and decide accordingly.

The apex court had last year upheld the AGR definition formulated by Department of Telecom (DoT). It termed the nature of objections raised by telecom service providers as frivolous.

Bharti Airtel, in its plea, had sought review of the directions on aspects of levy of interest, penalty and interest on penalty relating to AGR.
