Telecom Secy, TRAI chief to appear before JPC

The Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probing the 2G scam on Wednesday. They would be questioned with regard to the telecom licensing and related issues.

Meeting for the second time after it was set up in February, the JPC headed by senior Congress leader PC Chacko will examine thoroughly the telecom policy that has been in place since 1998 and may go even beyond, sources said.

Chandrashekhar and Sarma, as also the top officials of the Enforcement Directorate and Revenue Department, who will appear before the 30-member committee, are expected to be asked how the telecom licence policy had been implemented since 1998 and whether there had been any irregularities, the sources said.

The Committee is also expected to examine whether the telecom policy with regard to spectrum allocation had been sound or there were some lacunae that needed to be plugged.

“It has to be a comprehensive review of the telecom policy over 10 years,” a source said on the eve of the meeting.

“The focus will be on examining whether licence procedures have been followed, if licences have been issued on merit and discuss whether licences should be cancelled, in case any irregularity was found,” the source said.

The Committee, which is keen to complete its work by August-end, is also expected to summon various other persons linked to the spectrum issue.

Summoning of former Telecom Minister A Raja, a key player in the alleged 2G scam who is now in jail, and top executives of the beneficiary companies is also not ruled out.
