Bharti Airtel has paid Rs 100 billion to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) towards the adjusted gross revenue (AGR) dues.

Further, the company will pay the balance amount before the next date of hearing of the Supreme Court i.e. March 17, 2020 as it needs time to complete the exercise of calculating dues across 22 circles.

Airtel owes nearly Rs 355.86 billion in AGR dues, including licence fee and spectrum usage charge, to the government.
