Press release
1 minute read
2 February 2012 the Indian Supreme Court delivered its judgment on a public interest petition seeking cancellation of 122 cellular phone licences granted by the Government of India in 2008, including 22 licences to Uninor.
The court has in its judgment quashed all 122 licences, including those granted to Uninor. The quashing is effective 4 months from today. Meanwhile, the Government may seek recommendations from the TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) on reallocation of the licences.

Telenor has yet to review the ruling and will be able to comment further once we had a chance to review it.
