Telecom panel for minimum 3 per cent spectrum usage charge

July 31, 2016

cabThe inter-ministerial Telecom Commission on Monday reiterated its stand on using the weighted average method to compute the spectrum usage charge (SUC) in addition to introducing proposal for a 3 per cent floor rate for the weighted average calculation, a senior government official said.

In its previous meeting on June 7, the panel had cleared a proposal to use weighted average formula for calculating SUC based on the total spectrum holding, for all bands allocated to telecom operators. For the auctions proposed to be held later this year, the SUC will be imposed at 3 per cent of a company’s adjusted gross revenue (AGR). Source
