The government has proposed a four-year moratorium on adjusted gross revenue (AGR) related dues besides allowing telecom firms to surrender unused spectrum. The move will primarily provide relief to Vodafone Idea, which is on the brink of going bankrupt.
A moratorium on AGR-related dues will enable the cash-strapped telco to improve its business and clear dues over a longer period.
The relief package will benefit both Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel as the telcos have to repay the biggest chunk of AGR dues.
While Bharti Airtel's financial position is much better than Vodafone Idea, the relief measure will help the company's future plans to compete with Reliance Jio.
