Uniform revenue share for mobile companies at 8.5%

Telecom Commission, the highest decision-making body of the communications ministry, has approved major policy changes, including a uniform revenue share for mobile phone companies at 8.5 per cent of their annual sales, limiting the maximum amount of airwaves a company can hold, and delinking spectrum from licences in the future where the renewed licence will be valid only for 10 years instead of 20 years now.

The commission has also approved stricter rollout norms mandating mobile phone companies to offer services in all regions that have more than 500 residents.

The Commission has rejected TRAI' s proposals that the revenue share be reduced gradually over the next four years to 6 per cent, allowing the industry to save about Rs 6,500 crore in levies by 2014.
