Now the Supreme Court has made it amply clear that there cannot be another attempt at calculating the adjusted gross revenue (AGR) dues of telecom firms. The SC also pulled up the DOT for permitting the telcos to undertake self-assessment. The SC also warned the telecom companies against using the media to influence public opinion. Supreme Court will hear the Solicitor General’s plea seeking more time for companies to make the payments after a gap of 2 weeks. The judgement underlined that the original order on October 24 was clear on the liability of the telcos and there was no scope for a review. It also added that the DOT had no locus standi to allow such a review after the Supreme Court order. It also added that self-assessment will tantamount to reopening the entire judgement. Clearly, the SC does not appear to be budging on its stand and that is negative for the telcos and also for the banks that have lent to them.
