Telecom EGoM to be held within couple of days: Pawar
New Delhi: A crucial meeting of the reconstituted Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoM), scheduled for today, has been postponed, Agriculture Minister and head of the ministerial panel Sharad Pawar said.

The meeting of the EGoM, the first after Pranab Mukherjee resigned as the Finance Minister to contest Presidential election, was to decide on auction of telecom spectrum.

"The meeting has been postponed because I have got some other work," Pawar said here. "The meeting will be held either tomorrow or day after tomorrow".

The EGoM had to be reconstituted after exit of Mukherjee, who was heading it.

The panel was previously scheduled to meet on June 21 to decide on spectrum pricing and related issues but was deferred as Mukherjee did not want to sit on a judgement on such an important issue as he was entering Presidential race.

In February 2012, the Supreme Court cancelled 122 2G telecom licences issued during the tenure of former telecom minister A Raja, and asked the government to complete spectrum auction by August 31.
