Tatas cry foul over ban on Chinese vendors
Quote:NEW DELHI: The informal ban on import of Chinese telecom gear has led to an ugly spat among mobile phone firms. The Tatas, who operate the country’s fifth-largest mobile company, have demanded that the Centre withhold allotment of third-generation (3G) spectrum to successful bidders till the new guidelines on security clearance for equipment import are in place. Successful bidders are scheduled to get 3G airwaves on September 1.

Large GSM-based telcos such as Bharti Airtel, Vodafone Essar and Idea Cellular mostly import gear from Western vendors.
