The DoT has delayed the auction of the 3G spectrum by 14 days to January 30th. The nominal reason given is to give the potential bidders time to bone up on all steps of the auction.

Concerns : My one concern is that the winning bidders (I’m looking at Airtel and Vodafone here) despite having running test will still take their own sweet merry to roll out the services.

There should be a condition added to the auction; Ability to roll out services within 3 months of winning spectrum, Else you forfeit it.
