close

New Delhi:

The government on Friday allowed telecom companies to raise loans from offshore markets to refinance local debt for funding an airwave auction that starts on Monday.

The Reserve Bank of India will issue a formal notification on this within a week, a government statement said.

India is selling second-generation mobile phone airwaves for the first time through an auction after a Supreme Court order. The base price for the auction has been set at more than seven times what carriers paid in earlier state grant process.
