DoT challenges jurisdiction of appellate tribunal

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has challenged the jurisdiction of the Telecom Dispute Settlement Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) on matters relating to the spectrum charges. At a hearing on a petition by the cellular operators calling for a change in the spectrum pricing, DoT today filed an application stating that it "would not be required to file its response as TDSAT did not have any jurisdiction in this matter." DoT has drawn the attention of the tribunal to an Arbitration Clause in the licence agreements of the cellular operators and has demanded that the issue be referred to an independent arbitrator.
