Uninor to shut Mumbai ops from Sunday

By : |February 17, 2013 0

Telenor announced on Sunday that its Indian unit – Uninor – would shut down operations in Mumbai zone immediately submitting to a court rule.

The Telecon’s decision to shut down Uninor operations, which affects 1.8 million customers in Mumbai, follows a court order that carriers whose permits were revoked and did not win fresh rights to airwaves must stop services.

According to a Reuters report, Telenor’s permits in 22 zones were among those ordered to be revoked by India’s supreme court last year following a scandal over the grant of cellular licenses in a 2008 tender.

Last November, Telenor won rights to airwaves in six of those zones, and has said it was mulling bidding for spectrum in Mumbai zone in an auction due in March.
