India to set spectrum usage charge at 3% of revenue - report

Tuesday 26 July 2016 | 09:23 CET | News
India's Telecom Commission has set the minimum spectrum usage charges at 3 percent of revenue. "The commission has stuck to its previous recommendation but it has introduced one more element, which is maintaining a floor rate for SUC at 3 percent", a senior official at India's Department of Telecom (DoT) told ET. India's Cabinet is expected to approve or not the Telecom Commission's proposals next week. The next round of spectrum auction, which has been delayed over the SUC issue, can take place 45 days after the Cabinet approves the Commission's decision.
