2G scam CBI raids Airtel Vodafone files new FIR in 2G scam loss to Indian Citizens 565 Crore

Saturday –

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a new case about discrepancies in 2G spectrum allocation during BJP leader Pramod Mahajan's tenure.

On Saturday CBI raided Vodafone office in Mumbai and Airtel office in Gurgaon.
CBI also conducted raids at the residences of former Telecom Secretary Shyamal
Ghosh and former director of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) JR Gupta.

After carrying out searches CBI registered a case against ex-telecom secretary Shyamal Ghosh and the two telecom service providers for alleged irregularities in spectrum allocation.

Shyamal Ghosh was the Telecom Secretary when Pramod Mahajan was the Telecom Minister.
He has been charged with conspiracy, criminal misconduct and abusing official position.
The additional spectrum was given at low revenue share to telecom giants like Vodafone and Bharti Airtel.

Everything is happening because of Supreme Court of India.
Supreme Court ordered preliminary enquiry spectrum allocation during tenures of former telecom ministers Mahajan, Arun Shourie and Dayanidhi Maran.

In September CBI had submitted its report on Shourie and Maran.

Now the new case has been registered.

After Preliminary inquiry first case was registered against Maran and now this is the 2nd case registered.

CBI's preliminary enquiry report had indicted the late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan for favoring private companies and causing losses to the Indian Citizens.

Mahajan had allotted additional spectrum beyond 6.2 MHZ and up to 10 MHZ by charging only additional 1 per cent revenue share.

Media has reported that the above decision had caused revenue loss of Rs 565 crores to
Department of Telecom (DoT).
