New Delhi: Dismissing allegations of wrongdoing and mismanagement in allocating microwave spectrum in 2015, Union Communications Minister Manoj Sinha on Wednesday said that the DoT (Department of Telecom) had allocated the spectrum to Reliance Jio and Sistema on an administrative basis after the Supreme Courts order of 2012.

“The Supreme Court order of 2012 was on access spectrum and not on backhaul spectrum and not only one service provider, but whoever was genuine, we allotted microwave access spectrum administratively both before and after the order,” Sinha told reporters here. “Before the Supreme Court order two TSPs (telecom service providers) were allotted and after the order Reliance Jio and Sistema were allotted,” he added.
