The Cabinet is likely to decide on the relief package for the telecom sector in March 2018, based on the recommendations of an inter-ministerial group (IMG). The other recommendations of the IMG include giving more time to telecom operators to make payments for spectrum and increasing the holding limit of radio waves. Earlier, the Telecom Commission had cleared some of the key recommendations made by IMG formed to chalk out relief measures for the debt-ridden sector. The Commission had also approved extension of time period for the payment of spectrum bought in auctions by operators to 16 years from the current 10 years. Meanwhile, the sector's debt is estimated to be around Rs 4.6 trillion and decline in the margins of telecom companies due to stiff competition in the market is said to have pushed it to a financial stress.
