Report: India to allocate backhaul spectrum without action

India's Department of Telecommunications is not expected to opt for an auction to allocate backhaul spectrum in the E and V bands, Indian newspaper The Economic Times reported June 12, quoting a top official in the Ministry of Communications.

It will reportedly adhere to the recommendations made by sector watchdog Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, in August 2014, which pointed out that there were no global examples where backhaul spectrum was made available via an auction.

No final decision has been made yet, according to the report.

Backhaul spectrum are radio waves that are meant for backhaul and not for carrying access signals to consumers.
