  1. Somnath Chatterjee has exactly raised the same points which I've listed earlier. (1) Judiciary cannot interfere in the policy matters( Prerogative of executive) under any pretext unless otherwise it infringes on fundamental rights of the citizens In short, it's unconstitutional on the part of SC to rule FCFS as wrong policy and substitute with Auction. It's purely an executive matter. (2) Even if we consider FCFS as wrong policy, then SC should have cancelled all licenses issued under FCFS right from 2001 (3) Simply nefarious to rush into the judgment and expecting lower court not to get influenced by this judgment when the same matters are running in the special court. What is the urgency (other than the "holy" retirement of A.K.Ganguly)?Why can't judges wait for the completion of trial in special court which is constituted for this special(2G) purpose? source:: http://www.telegraph...ry_15091222.jsp I feel it's better in the national interest that Chief Justice interfere and put this Judgment on hold or the govt immediately initiates the review petition to save the natural justice.
  2. Out of all the operators, MTS will get back the spectrum at a cheap price(base price to be assigned by TRAI) since there'll be zero competition for CDMA spectrum. I expect neither RCOM nor TATA nor BSNL nor MTNL to bid for CDMA spectrum. Now, it's imperative upon TRAI to complete the auction process within the grace period of 4 months in order to avoid trouble for subscribers of prospective re-winning operators of shifting to other operators during interim period.
  3. This is exactly where I've lost breath to understand. When the entire judgment runs on the theory of 2001's FCFS being faulty, what crappy sense has descended upon them to annul only the licenses granted after Sep 2007??? When they 've scraped the policy of 2001, why on earth they've not scraped the entire beneficiaries?? When there's scope for impending judgment to annul one particular policy, why not ask all the beneficiaries to be made part of the case??? What way pre-2007 beneficiaries different from post-2007 beneficiaries???? It's ironic to see that when the judgment is passed against favoritism, the judgment itself is a favor for some beneficiaries. Is this a judgment???? In nutshell, Why the rush to deliver this foolish judgment??? Why does A.K.Ganguly not trust his successor?? Is A.K.Ganguly's personal gratification outweighs the integrity of his institution(Supreme Court)?? This judgment is going to kill the faith in the judiciary.
  4. You started with praising the judgment but concluded by slamming the judgment. I can understand this duality which I've seen in most of the normal onlookers of this case. Judgement runs along the chord which says that TRAI's recommendation is flawed which simply implies that FCFS is a wrong policy.(In that sense, your statement straight away rejects the Judgment)If that has to taken, then all licences issued from 2001 must be cancelled without any distinction. If we assume that Mr. Raja has done wrong implementation, The CBI has clearly identified the set of licenses which falls in this category. Then only those licenses should have been cancelled. This judgment looks like childish master yelling at his servants that "all are fired" on some major provaction. For this 'non-sense', you don't need judges sitting on the papers for so long. This could have been delivered as soon as Mr. Raja was chargesheeted. Are we becoming a foolish judiciary where judgments are driven by media pressure?? Where is Cheif Justice of India???? Is he sleeping?? What is his opinion on this non-sense?? Here is a judgment which neither Judges nor the parties to case could explain to the nation.
  5. This judgement by supreme court is utter non-sense. I lost all my faith in Indian judiciary and it has acted in arbitrary manner without any logic. It simply shows that SC was shamelessly dancing to the music played by the media. I feel this judgement was scripted in haste by Judge A.K.Ganguly to leave some kind of legacy behind him rather than serving meaningful Justice. It's pointless to pass this judgement when the trial is going on the special court. Why can't judges adopted similar position in this case as they've adopted for P.Chidambaram's case?..... Simply ask the special court to continue the trial and pass the judgement.... Is it not eating into the functional area of the lower court by the higher court? What kind of legacy is it??? What is the necessity to rush into judgement ??? Will they ever be able to bring back this time-space relation if the special court finds later that certain licencees had never violated the terms???.... There were 2 issues before the SC on this case. (1) First Come First Serve(FCFS) Policy (2) Wrong implementation of FCFS policy This judgement catastrophically fails on both accounts. If FCFS is wrong policy, then all the licences from 2001 must have been cancelled. If it's wrong implementation then the licences which have not violated the policy should never have been cancelled. MTS, TTSL licences(to name a few) will fall in fair category. Further looking at a major picture, Judiciary does not have any role in policy matters unless it infringes on fundamental rights of the citizens. It's prerogative of the executive. In that sense, it just simply can't rule FCFS policy is wrong. This is simply judicial overreach. Let us hope Chief Justice is watching this unconstitutional move by his colleagues. In my opinion, I see one and only reason. Retirement of Mr. A. K.Ganguly. The most respected Judge has lost all his credibility due to this act of personal gratification at the 11th hour. For his personal empowerment, he has sabotaged the Indian Judiciary. Let us focus on future, Let us pray sincerely to God that at least special court judge will be meaningful and work for true Justice and not for his media status. Govt. must immediately apply for review petition on this utterly irrational judgement. Chief Justice must control his wards to work within their constitutional limits. He must crystal clearly define which are the areas in which Judiciary can pass judgments and the areas in which it should not. If not, balance of power between legislative, judiciary & executive will collapse and eventually democracy falls apart.

  14. Dear friend, I didn't least expect such a discourteous comment from such valuable and patriotic brain. The current home ministry is functioning under the most threating/difficult environment if you compare it against any other internal securities of the world either past or present. After 9/11, the entire war is happening in our neighborhood(Afghanistan and Pakistan) and Pakistan being a friendly country to terrorists, for each and every attack on terrorists in Af-Pak, they try to retaliate in India as means of showing they've not lost the capacity to attack a secured nation. 26/11 is one such story..... Now, after Osama, those threats have multiplied multi-fold...... It's easy to say that our HMinistry is paranoiac but it's important to note that they've to be paranoiac to deal with much more paranoiac terrorists. Even a single success out of 1000 attempts by terrorists will be treated as success for terrorists. Even a single failure(999 successes)to prevent out of 1000 attempts by terrorists will be treated as failure for HMinistry. It's very important to highlight mistakes/errors in HMinistry but at the same time it's important to keep in mind that we live in relatively safe India when compared to India of 26/11. Huge credit must go to current ministry.
  15. Indeed a very good initiative Amit. +1 for you....
