TDSAT Sets Aside Rs 650 crore Fine on Bharti Airtel, Rs 100 crore on Vodafone

The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has set aside penalty notices of .`650 crore slapped on Airtel and of .`100 crore on Vodafone for subscriber local dialing service. The tribunal on Tuesday stayed the penalty notices while allowing petitions of Bharti Airtel and Vodafone India challenging the telecom department’s move.

Calling the penalties disproportionate to the violations, the TDSAT chided the telecom department for imposing the harshest penalty possible under the licence conditions. Under subscriber local dialling service, a subscriber while roaming could prefix a code before dialing a number and could forgo payment of roaming charges. DoT accused Airtel and Vodafone of causing loss to BSNL, whom they would have to otherwise pay charges. Original post at ET Telecom
