Supreme Court dismisses PIL challenging the grant of 4G license to RJIL

Further, the Supreme Court has dismissed a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by a non-governmental organisation challenging the grant of a 4G licence to Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL). The PIL had sought the cancellation of permission granted to RJIL by the government for providing voice telephony using the broadband wireless access spectrum which the operator had acquired in June 2010. The court, however, asked the government to look into the issue of spectrum usage charge applicable on the spectrum, without passing any order on the same.
