The Supreme Court dismissed curative petitions of several telecom firms for re-examination of its verdict cancelling 122 2G spectrum licences allocated during the tenure of former Telecom minister A. Raja.

The apex court also denied permission to Raja to file his curative petition.

The companies whose petitions were rejected are Videocon Telecommunications, Sistema Shyam Teleservices (SSTL), Tata Teleservices (TTSL) and Idea Cellular. A bench of Chief Justice Altamas Kabir and Justices P. Sathasivam and G. S. Singhvi rejected the plea of the telecom firms and Raja stating that no case is made out.

''We have gone through the curative petitions and the relevant documents. In our opinion, no case is made out within the parameters indicated in the decision of this Court in Rupa Ashok Hurra vs Ashok Hurra & Anr. Hence, the curative petitions are dismissed. As far as curative petition of Raja is concerned, permission to file curative petitions is rejected,'' it stated, adding that consequently, applications for stay and appropriate directions are also rejected.

A curative petition is filed after the dismissal of review petition and is decided in the chambers of judges.

Earlier on April 3, 2012, the apex court had dismissed the review petitions of Videocon Telecommunications, S Tel, SSTL, TTSL, Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu) Pvt, Etisalat DB Telecom Pvt and Idea Cellular.

A bench of justices G. S. Singhvi and A. K. Ganguly (since retired), on February 2, 2012, had cancelled the 122 2G licences holding as unconstitutional the policy of first-come-first-served.

Reacting to the dismissal of the curative petition, SSTL in a statment said, ''It is unfortunate that the Supreme Court has not admitted the curative petition of SSTL. The company believes that it has been unfairly penalised in the February 2, 2012 order by the Supreme Court. While SSTL remains committed to its operations, however, it would be up to the shareholders to decide the go forward strategy of the company.''
