The Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday placed on record the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India's report, which tentatively assessed the annual value of spectrum during the period from 2001 to 2008, in the CBI special court. The report is an additional document in the 2G spectrum scam case.
The CBI, however, sought a week's time for filing its reply on the Union Law Ministry's opinion on the interpretation of an “associate” company as per clause 8 of Unified Access Services Licence guidelines.
The court has fixed the matter for September 15 for the CBI to file its response. The court is also slated to frame charges against the 17 accused that day.
The CBI told the court that there were contradictions in the TRAI stand on some issues, especially on considering telecom services as a source of revenue.
The CBI submitted, besides the TRAI report, two letters containing correspondence between the agency and the telecom watchdog, on investigation into the 2G case.
