2G: FM Pranab to present CAG report

New Delhi, Nov 16: Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee will present the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report on the 2G spectrum allocation in Parliament on Tuesday, Nov 16.

The findings of the CAG report on the Issue of Licences and Allocation of 2G Spectrum by the Department of Telecommunications led to the resignation of A Raja as the Union Telecom Minister.

Meanwhile, it is expected that the both Houses will see fresh ruckus by Opposition parties demanding Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe to the 2G spectrum scam.

Earlier, the CAG report, which leaked to the media, showed that A Raja served 'first come first policy' in allocating the spectrum. Also, the allocation of 2G spectrum at under-valued prices caused a loss to the tune of Rs 1.76 lakh crore to the national exchequer.
