DoT submits affidavit to NCLT stating that RCOM-Aircel merger needs clearance from Supreme Court

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has submitted an affidavit to the National Company Law Tribunal stating that Reliance Communication’s  merger with Aircel would need a no-objection or clearance from the Supreme Court. As per DoT, the clearance is needed as the apex court had restrained Aircel from selling and trading the 2G spectrum allotted to it in 2006.
