2G Case: RTL moves court for having TRAI report on its record

New Delhi, Sep 8: Reliance Telecom Ltd (RTL) and its three executives, facing prosecution for their alleged role in the 2G spectrum allocation scam, on Wednesday formally moved a Delhi court for a direction to the CBI to submit to it the latest TRAI report.

Special CBI Judge O P Saini on the joint plea by RTL and its executives issued notice to the CBI seeking its stand on the plea and fixed September 9 for arguments on it.

RTL had made an oral plea for having the TRAI report, which purportedly says there was no loss to the exchequer in the spectrum allocation, on the court''s record.

It today filed a formal application for the purpose.

The Reliance counsel also sought court's directions to the CBI to call for the Union Law Ministry report to the Department of Telecom on applicability of clause 8 of Unified Access Service Licence (UASL) guidelines, which, as per the report, purportedly applies only to companies holding a telecom licence and not to the applicants.

The court had yesterday also issued notice to the CBI on a similar plea by the remaining 2G scam accused, including former Telecom Minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi.

The CBI had yesterday submitted to the Supreme Court the latest TRAI report, which has said it is not possible to predict with certainty the precise value of 2G spectrum that would have emerged in auction between 2001-08.
