The Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday told a Delhi court that former Telecom Minister A. Raja had approved the grant of dual technology 2G spectrum licences to his favourite telecom firms like ADAG’s Reliance Communication and others a day before inviting applications for it.

Opening his arguments on framing of charges before Special Judge O.P. Saini, Special Public Prosecutor U.U. Lalit said Mr. Raja had given in-principle approval for grant of 2G licences to Reliance, HFCL and Shyam Tele link on September 18, 2007, a day before his ministry officially opened the scheme on September 19, 2007, for grant of these licences.

A day later as Tata Teleservices applied for the 2G spectrum licence on September 19, the Telecom Minstry deliberately sat over its plea, he added.
