The Supreme Court on Friday refrained from granting an urgent hearing to Bharti Airtel as it sought a stay on the Delhi High Court’s order to stop its 3G services in seven circles where it did not have spectrum licences.

A bench led by Justice RM Lodha said that Bharti’s petition for interim relief will be taken up on Monday even as senior counsels AM Singhvi and Soli Sorabjee pleaded for imminent intervention.

The bench added that Vodafone’s request to be impleaded as a party in the case could also be listed for hearing on Monday. The counsels argued that “the effects of the HC order are disastrous as 20 million subscribers,who have been getting 3G services for last two-and-a-half years,would be affected.”
