The Supreme Court (SC) has rejected the request for an open-court hearing to review the petitions made by Bharti Airtel, Vodafone Idea, Tata Teleservices, Hughes Communications India and some state-run firms on the adjusted gross revenue (AGR) verdict.

However, the review petitions will be heard ‘in chamber’ by the same three-judge bench led by Justice Arun Mishra, which had delivered the October 24 AGR order. The other two members on the bench are Justice AA Nazeer and Justice MR Shah.

Recently, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea had sought an urgent hearing of their review petitions against the SC’s verdict on AGR.
