3G Roaming Pacts Get TDSAT Nod, Penalties QuashedNEW DELHI: Telecommunication tribunal Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) on Tuesday ruled in favour of leading mobile phone operators who had challenged a government ban on pacts between them to provide 3G services beyond their licensed zones, a lawyer on the case said.

Reports also said that TDSAT has quashed all penalties imposed by the Department of Telecom on Bharti Airtel, Idea and Vodafone.

Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular were last year barred by the Supreme Court from adding new 3G subscribers in areas where they do not have their own airwaves and were offering the services through agreements with each other.

In 2012, the tribunal had given a split verdict on a plea by the operators challenging the government ban in the long-running dispute.
