Private telcos to pay BSNL Rs 39,000 for ports, for now: SC

#1
The Supreme Court on Tuesday directed private telecom operators to pay state-owned BSNL Rs 39,000 for every point of connection -- ports -- as interconnection usage charges as an interim arrangement and asked the PSU not to disconnect service.

Hearing a petition filed by GSM operators' association COAI against BSNL's demand for Rs 55,000 per port as IUC, the apex court said the arrangement will be continued till August 2, when the case comes up for hearing again.

Passing an interim order, a bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia directed the Cellular Operators Association of India to pay Rs 39,000 to BSNL as IUC to get interconnected into the PSU's network.

The Apex Court directed BSNL to file an application with details of the amount which it want to recover from the private telecom operators, which paid less IUC for the period between February, 2007, and May, 2010.

Meanwhile, the bench also asked BSNL not to disconnect private telecom operators from its network till August 2, the next date of hearing which was accepted by Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium, appearing for the PSU, who gave a statement on record regarding it.

"Pay them Rs 39,000 and there would be no disconnection.

But then you would also have to come back with a proposal for the gap amount (claimed by BSNL)," the bench, which also consisted Justices K S Radhakrishnan and Swatanter Kumar, said.
