The telecom AGR dues were only calculated till March 2017. Hence the DOT has been calculating the additional dues for two more years i.e. FY18 and FY19. While the dues on account of AGR are already to the tune of Rs.92,642 crore, it is now estimated by DOT that if FY18 and FY19 are also considered then the total dues may go above Rs.135,000 crore. This excludes the spectrum usage charges (SUC) of Rs.70,000 crore. As of now it is not clear what is going to eventually happen to the telecom sector.
