The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) will come out with fresh proposals on 2G mobile phone spectrum pricing in the next few days, its Chairman J.S. Sarma said on Tuesday.

TRAI had recommended in May last year that mobile carriers pay a one-time fee for holding 2G radio-spectrum beyond 6.2 mega hertz based on 3G prices, a move that would hit established firms and drew howls of protest from them.

Later in the month, the regulator had said it would submit fresh proposals to the government after a consultation process.
