Meanwhile, the Department of Telecom (DoT) has slapped a penalty of Rs 2,000 crore on Vodafone Idea and Rs 1,050 crore on Bharti Airtel based on sector regulator Trai’s recommendation five years ago, according to sources. The DoT has given three weeks’ time to the telecom operators to pay the penalty.
In October 2016, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) had recommended imposing a total penalty of Rs 3,050 crore on Airtel, Vodafone, and Idea (now merged) for allegedly denying interconnectivity to Reliance Jio. The regulator had, at that time, stopped short of recommending the cancellation of their telecom licenses saying it may lead to significant consumer inconvenience.
