SINGED BY SPECTRUM
TELECOM AND HRD MINISTER QUICK CHANGE In November 2010, Sibal replaced A. Raja as telecom minister.
DECISION PENDING Telecom ministry completed bids for 3G spectrum in May 2010 but is yet to clarify whether a licence holder can offer it to someone else if he fails to roll out services. Yet to take a stand on mergers and acquisitions of telecom companies. The ministry has not taken a call on dissolving the Indian Telecom Service.
UGC and NCERT, two crucial institutions under the HRD ministry, have been headless for eight months.
