2G: Telecos, Raja's petitions dismissed

New Delhi, Feb 15: The Supreme Court on Feb 14 dismissed curative petitions of several telecom firms for re-examination of its verdict cancelling 122 2G spectrum licences allocated during tenure of former Telecom Minister A Raja.

The apex court also denied permission to Raja to file his curative petition. The companies whose petitions were rejected are Videocon Telecommunications Ltd, Sistema Shyam Teleservices Ltd (SSTL), Tata Teleservices Ltd (TTSL) and Idea Cellular Ltd.

A bench of Chief Justice Altamas Kabir and justices P Sathasivam and G S Singhvi rejected the plea of the telecom firms and Raja saying "no case is made out".

"We have gone through the curative petitions and the relevant documents. In our opinion, no case is made out within the parameters indicated in the decision of this Court in Rupa Ashok Hurra vs Ashok Hurra."
