Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL) has made an additional payment of around Rs 20 billion to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) on ad hoc basis towards its AGR liabilities.

Earlier the operator had paid Rs 21.97 billion to the DoT towards its AGR dues and this additional payment is aimed at covering any reconciliation differences.

However, as per government estimates, TTSL is supposed to pay Rs 140 billion in AGR dues.
