Bharat Broadband Network Limited (BBNL) has deferred bid dates for Rs 190.41 billion BharatNet broadband tender from August 24, 2021, to September 14, 2021.

The move comes after potential bidders raised queries on the project.

According to industry sources, bid dates are likely to be extended further as the queries need to be vetted by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) as well and the entire process may take a few weeks.
