DoT seeks clarifications from ASG on Vodafone-Idea merger

July 09, 2018

The Departement of Telecommunications (DoT) has asked for clarifications from the Additional Solicitor General (ASG) on the Vodafone-Idea merger regarding payment of administratively held spectrum and guidelines related to mergers and acquisitions.

According to the licensor, Vodafone’s amalgamation of its four units in 2014-15 should be considered as the first merger and the Vodafone-Idea merger as the second. Additionally, DoT has also sought clarification on whether it should raise the demand for the total administratively-allocated spectrum, or for the 4.4 MHz held by Vodafone.

Further, the DoT has also enquired the ASG if bank guarantees from Idea should be for its entire spectrum, on a one-time spectrum charges (OTSC) basis, or only for radio waves beyond 4.4 MHz.
