The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the parliament has formed five-member sub committee to look into possible irregularities in the distribution of frequency spectrum and unlawful usage of VoIP. Dr. Prakash Chandra Lohani heads the team, which has been asked to submit the report in a month. The PAC ordered the formation of the team after it was dissatisfied with the responses from the authorities on why beauty contest, instead of auction, was used to provide 2 G frequency spectrum and why the auction is not being held to provide 3 G spectrum. NTA chief Bhesh Raj Kandel had said that there were not clear provisions in the law to go for auctioning. He said that the NTA has submitted a proposal at the Ministry of Information and Communication to go for auctioning for the future distribution of 3 G spectrum. The PAC investigation into frequency distribution comes in the wake of reports of huge irregularities in 2 G spectrum distribution in India.
