The telecom operator Bharti Airtel stated that the company should be compensated in the form of bank interests for the advance money of Rs 5,525 crore and bank guarantee of Rs 2,542 crore.

Notably, during February 2014, the company won 1800 MHz spectrum in 15 telecom circles and 900 MHz in 3 regions.

The other telecom operator, Airtel said that the delay would impact 10.4 million subscribers in Delhi and 3.9 million users in Kolkata.

However, TRAI had already recommended that in case of a delay in allocation of spectrum beyond one month from the date of payment, operators should be compensated at State Bank of India, the amount that has paid already by the operators.
