Trai to hold talks on 2G spectrum fee

“I have asked the operators to give their views on linking 3G spectrum price to 2G by June 15. We plan to finalise the process by July 15,” Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), Chairman J S Sharma, told reporters here. “We are consulting others as well,” he said.
It has proposed a one-time levy on unused radio spectrum with service providers based on the price derived from the auction for 3G frequency that could bring over $7.5 billion of additional revenue to the government. Trai said telecom operators like Bharti and Vodafone, which hold radio spectrum beyond 6.2 mega hertz be charged a one-time fee based on the price derived from the ongoing auction for frequency for 3G services.
