CAG has questioned how Axis Bank gave a guarantee of Rs252.50 crore to Infotel Broadband, which had a net-worth of Rs2.5 crore, without any margin money. Will RBI show some interest now?:'The DoT failed to rigging of the auction right from the beginning, when the auction documents and the Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) of Rs252.50 crore was paid by a small ISP through the covert and overt assistance of a third party/ private bank. This small ISP (Infotel) ended up bidding Rs12,847.77 crore (5,000 times of its net-worth) for Pan India spectrum and then ended up being sold on the day of completion of the auction, indicating Infotel Broadband's collusion and sharing of confidential information with a third party, in violation of Auction Conditions/Rules. Neither the top management of the DoT nor important committees like the application screening committee (ASC), Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) and Committee of Secrataries (CoS) could detect the tell-tale signs of collusion and sharing of confidential information by the biggest bidder, a tiny ISP. The government should get the matter investigated even at this juncture, fix responsibilities on the bidders that violated the auction conditions/rules prescribed in the notice inviting application (NIA) and cancel the allotment of the BWA spectrum along with exemplary punishment for the colluding firms."'

Looking Beyond - The solution to India’s onion price inflation is an obvious one. Hint: it’s not the hoarders:'Each state has its own version of the model Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee Act (APMC Act). This determines the market structure—who can buy and sell to whom, where, when and the charges and taxes to be paid at each stage—which has created the onion supply chain as we know it. About 97% of the country’s onion harvest is sold in 50 major onion market yards, regulated under the APMC Act. And it’s because of this law that India’s onion farmer gets a poor price for his produce even as consumers pay a high price.' Read More
