In 2012, the telecom sector in India came under intense scrutiny due to a number of reasons ranging from cancellation of 2G licenses, ambiguity in implementation of key policy measures and dip in wireless subscriber net additions. Topping them all was the spectrum auction debacle. In February 2012, the Supreme Court of India cancelled 122 telecom licenses issued in 2008. The cancellation of telecom licenses and muted response to their re-auction has resulted in consolidation in the telecom industry. These events have stolen the limelight from the National Telecom Policy (NTP), the draft of which is hailed as progressive and encouraging for the sector in the coming decade. The past year induced negative sentiment in the sector and affected investor confidence. As a result, international interest in the India telecom market is gradually waning. Unless the government makes a strong move to support the sector, telecom may follow the aviation sector, which despite being opened up for FDI has not seen much of an interest.
