"Theoretically, it (E-GSM band) is possible but we are of the view that it is not favourable as it would lead to wastage of 10 MHz spectrum in the band," said Shokuv.

Spectrum in this band was first auctioned in 2012 but there was no response, leaving the government with unsold 95 MHz (paired). In the 2013 auction, there was lukewarm response with the government ...
