Does being late in asking for the payment from GAIL India, Oil India, Powergrid Corporation of India, Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers and Chemicals and DMRC change the definition of AGR?
The pressure of AGR dues has stressed the telecom companies financially, ICRA observed, adding the 20-year lenience has caused confusion
There are still differences in the AGR assessments by the government and those by the companies from which their own calculations were sought
Sunil Mittal said Bharti Airtel was committed to abiding by the Supreme Court order on AGR and that the company would pay the balance soon
Vodafone-Idea promoters Britain’s Vodafone Group and India’s Aditya Birla Group said that the company would shut down without this relief
A desk officer in the DoT had written to the A-G that the Supreme Court order on AGR need not be complied with until another order
This is not a bail-out package; the government has merely allowed the telecom companies to pay their dues later, leaving AGR untouched
