2G Scam | Licence investigator to identify lapses

New Delhi: An investigation into the sale of telecom licences at low prices will look into “shortcomings and lapses" in the 2G licensing process, the telecoms ministry said in a statement on Monday.

The investigation, by a former Supreme Court judge to examine India’s allocation of 2G licences and spectrum between 2001 and 2009, will suggest remedial measures to avoid future lapses, it said.

The government last week widened a probe into the country’s biggest corruption case -- which revolves around the sale of telecom licences at low prices -- to include decisions made during the NDA rule.
