NEW DELHI, Feb 9 (PTI) - Virtually in line with estimated loss pointed out by Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) in 2G spectrum allocation, telecom regulator TRAI today recommended Rs 10,972.45 crore for a pan-India license with 6.2 Mhz spectrum.
Going by this valuation, six new pan-India licenses given in 2008 would have garnered Rs 65,834.7 crore to the government along with additional revenue from other firms who were given licences in fewer circles.
The CAG had estimated loss of up to Rs 1.76 lakh crore from 2G spectrum allocation .
This had included new licences, dual technology licences and revenues from additional spectrum beyond the contracted limit of 6.2 Mhz held by various operators especially BSNL, Bharti and Vodafone.
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has also recommended 'one-time' entry fee for additional spectrum beyond 6.2 Mhz.
In fact the regulator has classified valuation of spectrum in two categories.
