Telecom dept likely to strike down Railways free spectrum demand
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is likely to strike down the Indian Railways’ demand for airwaves worth Rs 65,000 crore in the 700 megahertz (MHz) band. The DoT is against giving a premium spectrum to Railways for free as it would lose out on the revenue from the auction of those airwaves, said sources familiar with the development.
spectrum belongs to public.
government sells it for a premium.
companies overcharge public to recover that money.
repeat.
