Kapil Sibal

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.
