Centre Seeks Supreme Court’s Clarification on spectrum allocation

The Indian government has approached the Supreme Court to clarify whether it can allocate spectrum administratively rather than through auctions, primarily in cases where national security, public interest, or technical and economic challenges make auctions non-viable. This request stems from the 2012 2G spectrum case, where the Supreme Court mandated auctions for distributing scarce natural resources. The government’s plea highlights the need for flexibility in spectrum allocation to meet unanticipated demands and maintain essential services like defense and disaster management.
