SC dismisses plea of telecom majors alleging errors in calculation of AGR-related dues
The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the applications filed by telecom majors, including Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel, raising the issue of alleged errors in calculation in the figure of Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR) related dues payable by them.
All the miscellaneous applications are dismissed, a bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao said while pronouncing the order.
The telecom companies had submitted before the apex court that arithmetical errors in the calculation be rectified and there are cases of duplication of entries.
The top court had on July 19 said it would pass orders on the applications filed by the telecom majors.
