  1. Why such demand in 1800Mhz band in up east and is there any idea which operator is bidding for this band in up east

    • Could be between Airtel and Vi. Or could be just to make it look like it was a fair auction and the operators had not pre-decided among themselves so as to avoid bidding against each other, so that they don’t come under the scanner.
      In the last auction also all spectrum was sold at base price with no bidding war between operators. Jio had bought spectrum in B5 in a way that it knew it was going to get the remaining spectrum from Airtel after the auction, which was a dead giveaway that it was all pre-decided.
