2G licenses to be cancelled? SC to decide today

Supreme Court
New Delhi, Jan 10: The Supreme Court once again will begin its hearing on two petitions over 2G licenses on Monday, Jan 10. The fate of the 2G license holders will be decided during the hearing.

The court will proceed with two petitions. One by Janata Party leader Subramanium Swami and the other by the Centre for Public Interest Litigation (PIL) headed by Prashant Bhushan.

The petitioners claimed, "the allocation of 2G spectrum and telecom licenses made by the DoT [Department of Telecommunications] pursuant to the two press releases issued by it on Jan 10, 2008 be held illegal."

What is 2G spectrum scam?

They also added, "licenses be cancelled, spectrum be taken back by the government and then be auctioned as was done in 2001 and has been done in 2010."

Swami, during the previous hearing, also demanded to be appointed as one of the public prosecutors.

Now, all eyes are on the Supreme Court's decision which set the fate of the country's largest con-job, ie, 2G spectrum scam.
