New Delhi, July 24 (TIWN) In a big setback for telecom companies, the Supreme Court on Friday dismissed their plea seeking correction of alleged errors in Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR) calculation.

The main grievance of the petitioners was that the National Highway Authority of India was not following the directions of the State about the alignment of the proposed widening of National Highway-66. There are two Temples and a Mosque on the left of the road, but the Mosque shown on the right of the road is a private Mosque.

According to the petitioners, the Government suggested alterations in the alignment with a specific intention to save a private Mosque, thereby causing the acquisition to concentrate on the left of the existing Highway, where the petitioners reside and temples and mosques are located.
