The Supreme Court issued contempt notices to the telecom companies which have not yet paid the dues arising out of the October 2019 judgment. The bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra, Abdul Nazeer and M R Shah has asked Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and Tata Teleservices, to clear their adjusted gross revenue (AGR) dues to department of telecommunications (DoT) to the tune of Rs 1.47 lakh crores before March 17, the next date of hearing.
The government had refused to take coercive action against mobile service providers that failed to meet the court-directed deadline to pay dues after Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel sought more time.
The Court was hearing the applications filed by the telecom companies seeking a new schedule of payment of statutory dues to the tune of Rs 1.47 lakh cr. There was a lot of displeasure by Justice Mishra at the applications seeking more time for payment. The telecom companies want to negotiate a fresh payment schedule with the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), which has issued demand notices to them.
