The total dues that telecom companies owe to the Department of Telecommunications (DOT) towards AGR dues is Rs.92,589 crore. Out of this sum, the actual AGR dues are to the tune of Rs.22,589 crore while the balance Rs.70,000 crore is by way of interest and penalty. It is this portion of the dues that the telecom companies are asking for concessions on. They are not disputing the AGR dues but more on the interest and the penalty component, which is more than 3 times the original dues. For example, the telecom companies have already paid nearly Rs.15,500 crore of these AGR dues and if you purely consider the AGR dues then there is only about Rs.7000 crore pending to be paid.
