The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has issued notices to Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel to pay ₹3,050 crore in cumulative penalties within three weeks for flouting licence conditions by denying Reliance Jio Infocomm adequate points of interconnection (PoIs) in 2016, which affected the quality of services. This comes shortly after the government unveiled a series of measures to help the debt-laden sector.

"The DoT has given the companies three weeks to pay the penalties," a person familiar with the matter told ET. Airtel has to pay ₹1,050 crore and Vodafone Idea has to pay ₹2,000 crore.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) had recommended fines of ₹1,050 crore each in 2016 on Vodafone India and Bharti Airtel for violating licence conditions over quality of service by not granting adequate PoIs to Jio in 21 circles each.

Reliance ko jo dard hua woh DOT ko chubhta hai.

But beyond this, both Airtel and Vodafone Idea are still staring at cumulative adjusted gross revenue (AGR) dues to the tune of ₹76,000 crore.
