New Delhi:After penalising new operators, Telecom Ministry is now turning the heat on old service providers and has finalised a penalty demand of over Rs 150 crore for their failure to roll out services on time.

"The Department of Telecom (DoT) has finalised the fine of over Rs 150 crore on the established telecom operators for not rolling out their networks on time in the past," a senior DoT official said.

Last year, DoT had issued 119 notices to new telecom operators for slipping on network roll-out obligations and had levied penalties on them. It has collected over Rs 300 crore from them in penalties.

Earlier, the ministry had proposed penalty (or Liquidated Damages) of Rs 477 crore (later reduced to Rs 135.60 crore) against old operators, including Bharti Airtel, Tata Teleservices, RCom, Aircel and others for missing roll out obligations.
