The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed an appeal by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) against a Telecom Dispute Settlement Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) order which held that liabilities of past dues related to spectrum usage charges (SUC) rested only with Reliance Communications (RCom) — the seller — and not the buyer of its 800 MHz spectrum, […]
At the last hearing, Rcom, through the existing resolution professional, had sought 357 days (from May 30, 2018, to April 30, 2019) exclusion in the insolvency process citing the stays it had on the process by the appellate tribunal and the Supreme Court.
Anil Ambani said, “My sincere and heartfelt thanks to my respected elder brother, Mukesh, and Nita, for standing by me during these trying times, and demonstrating the importance of staying true to our strong family values by extending this timely support.”
"RCom is confident of raising the balance approx Rs 200 crore for payment to Ericsson, in order that the entire Rs 550 crore plus interest thereon stands paid to Ericsson well within the time of 4 weeks allowed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court," the spokesperson said.
A bench of justices R F Nariman and Vineet Saharan pronounced the verdict after Ericsson dragged Anil Ambani to court after RCom failed to clear its dues despite having given an undertaking, according to the petitioner's counsel, to pay the amount.
