3G auction date slips again; auction base price increase to be considered by law ministry (India)

The long-running saga regarding the auction process for 3G spectrum in India looks set to continue following the revelation that the auction date will be further postponed from 30 January. The announcement comes after the process was initially delayed from 16 January following requests from operators for more time to prepare for the process. The latest delay is understood to come as a result of the failure of the Cabinet to approve some of the key parameters of the auction process. No new date has been announced.

In related news the communications ministry is set to seek the law ministry’s judgement on whether the auctions base price should be doubled. The finance ministry earlier this month demanded that the base prices for both 3G and WiMAX spectrum be doubled, but the Department of Telecommunication (DoT) rejected the proposals.
