Committee gives addresses for submission of memoranda; appeals to those willing to appear in the proceedings to do so
New Delhi: The Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) examining telecom policies on grant of licences and spectrum has invited suggestions from the public in general, experts and organisations on the issue.
The Committee, headed by Congress member of Parliament PC Chacko, has sought views and suggestions from various stakeholders on the subject within two weeks.
The JPC has also asked those willing to appear before the Committee to specifically state that they will do so. However, the Committee's decision in this regard would be final.
Those who desire to submit any memoranda to the Committee may send two copies, either in English or in Hindi, containing their views and suggestions on the subject, within two weeks from today, the JPC stated.
The suggestions should be strictly in accordance with the terms of reference of the Committee and be sent to the Director (TLS) Lok Sabha Secretariat, Room No. 004, Basement, Parliament House Annexe, New Delhi 110 001, in a sealed cover. The memoranda can also be emailed at [email protected] or faxed to 011- 2309 3919.
It said the suggestions would form part of the records of the Committee and would be treated as strictly confidential and the contents would not be divulged to anyone, as such an act would constitute a 'breach of privilege' of the Committee.
The 30-member JPC, which has been asked to give its report on the issue by the end of the next session of Parliament, was set up last month after a prolonged stalemate in Parliament over the 2G scam.
The Committee will look into the telecom policy pursued between 1998 and 2009 as well as the allocation and pricing of telecom licences and spectrum, and examine irregularities and aberrations, if any, and the consequences of this implementation.
The first meeting of the JPC was held on 24th March. The Committee is scheduled to meet next on 18th May.
