September 10: This week we see another dramatic change in the rules for India's telecom sector, with TRAI suggesting a cut in the 2G spectrum auction reserve prices. The sharp cut brings reserve prices for high-value circles like Delhi and Mumbai below that for less lucrative circles in the 2012 auction. We ask COAI’s Rajan Mathews and AUSPI’s Ashok Sud where these recommendations leave participants of the 2012 auction and whether there will be a rise in litigation.
