Upset over a campaign by vested interests that there has been a restriction on issuing new licences, the department of telecom on Friday indicated that LoIs to new aspirants would be issued as per the existing policy that does not put a cap on the number of players in a circle.

It is learnt that vested interests are spreading misconceptions in some quarters that the NTP 1999 puts restrictions on new licenses and should be granted only if spectrum is available.
