Ravishankar Prasad: All Spectrum Allocation Happened Through Auction
Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said every spectrum was allocated through auction during his tenure as Telecom Minister and will look into the anomalies pointed out by the CAG in spectrum allocation of 2015.
“Every spectrum was allocated through auction,” Prasad said on sidelines on an NIC event when asked about the shortcomings found by CAG in 2015 spectrum allocation.
When specifically asked that issue raised by the Comptroller and the Auditor General (CAG) pertains to microwave access spectrum, Prasad said “I will look into it”.
Microwave access (MWA) spectrum is allocated to telecom operators for short distances to provide mobile services.
