TDSAT rejects Reliance Communications' plea against spectrum auction guidelines Economic Times Telecom tribunal TDSAT has rejected Reliance Communications' plea against the guidelines issued by the government for the proposed auction of spectrum. "The impugned guidelines ... in our opinion, being not final, cannot be held to be conclusive and binding on the parties hereto. We, therefore, are of the opinion that this petition is not maintainable at this stage ...," the TDSAT bench headed by its Chairman Justice SB Sinha said while dismissing RCom's petition. Anil Ambani-led Reliance group firm RCom in its petition had submitted that as per the DoT's circular of July 3, the government would allot two blocks of 1.25 Mhz to existing GSM operators in the proposed auction, while the CDMA players can bid for one only block. They claimed that this approach was discriminatory.
