New Delhi, February 06, 2012 : Shocked over the recent Supreme Court verdict cancelling 122 2G licences, Norwegian IT Minister Ms Rigmor Aasrud has sought an appointment with her Indian counterpart to discuss the issue as the government braces itself up for diplomatic parleys. A senior government official said that, The visit had been planned for more than a month. She will also visit Bangalore for e-governance institutes and technology institutions.

“Uninor” is a joint venture between Telenor of Norway and Unitech – realty firm of India , has said the company will participate in 2G spectrum auction but did not rule out the exit option from the Indian market.

Last week the Supreme Court ruled that all 122 2G licenses were issued illegally by the then telecom minister Mr. A Raja. The licence of Uninor, along with other new operators, has been cancelled.
