Chairman of the Joint Parliamentary Committee P C Chacko said the Supreme Court’s verdict on cancellation of 2G licences would not have any effect vis-a-vis the task before the panel.

“It will have no bearing as far as the JPC is concerned,” he said. “We have a very wide range of issues before us.”

Chacko said the JPC “had been mandated to go into the pricing and policies formulated for allocation of spectrum between 1998 and 2009 and make suggestions for the future”. “The cancellation of licences has got no relevance for the JPC,” he added.

Asked if the JPC would discuss the SC verdict at its next meeting on February 14,he said,“No,it is for the government to do deal with it.”
