Indian Operators Face Bill Shock
The comptroller and auditor general of India reported that nine operators received additional spectrum without paying. It's estimated that the government could have raised 370 billion Indian Rupees (US$8.1 billion) if the spectrum had been sold at market value. These findings lead to the recent resignation of former telecom minister A Raja. (See India's Telecom Minister Quits.)
It seems quite possible that this situation will result in protracted court cases. If that happens, the only certainty will be that the associated legal fees will be enormous.
