Tata Teleservices Ltd. will launch mobile services using the GSM, technology in the next few weeks, the company’s chief executive said Monday. Anil Sardana said at a press conference,
We have received spectrum in all circles, except in Delhi. We will will launch GSM services in southern India first.
GSM players may face uncertainty over allotments of additional radio frequencies as they expand their services in the fastest growing mobile market in the world. Following last month’s ruling by the telecom tribunal, which said that GSM players were not entitled to more than 6.2 MHz of radio frequencies, the communications ministry has now sought legal opinion whether to go ahead with the allocations beyond this limit. The communications ministry is faced with a catch-22 situation.
