New Delhi, Jul 23: Former Telecom Minister A Raja, arrested for his role in the 2G scam, will begin his arguments on charges of cheating, forgery and criminal conspiracy against him from Monday.

With the CBI completing its arguments on framing of charges against Raja and 16 others, including 3 telecom firms, the former minister will begin his arguments from July 25.

"Arguments on charge for prosecution heard and concluded. Put up for arguments on charge for the accused persons on July 25, 2011," Special CBI Judge O P Saini said.

While concluding his arguments, Special Public Prosecutor U U Lalit told the court that going purely by the note on revision of licence fee by Indian Revenue Service officer Manju Madhavan or the Prime Minister's letter, a loss of Rs 30,000 crore has been caused to the public exchequer.
