The Supreme Court verdict, upholding the contentions of the Department of Telecommunication (DoT) on the definition of Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR) for the purpose of calculating license fee, is being considered as the last blow to the health of the affected telecommunication companies and the sector. The news has been covered in a manner to give an impression that the Supreme Court has been somewhat insensitive about the health of the telecom sector; that the decision is not consistent and also not on the expected lines and thereby existing affected telcos have been caught off-guard. Read the piece by Rajendra Kumar Joshi, who argues that the SC's order is the culmination of the long outstanding issue decided in favour of Department of Telecommunications (DoT). Infact, it is very comprehensive, reasoned and also consistent with its previous orders on the similar issue.
