Ratan Tata, Chair person of Tata Group, which holds successful entities like Tata Motors, has requested that Niira Radia tapes which are leaked, should be investigated by an independent agency. He also said that the present inquiry was not up to the required standards as it is not keeping up with the privacy and responsibility.
As per Mr Tata, in a fresh affidavit in the Supreme Court, he said that the investigation is confined to Income Tax department and does not stretch to Revenue Intelligence Department, Enforcement Directorate, Central Bureau of Investigation and Intelligence Bureau as they are independently run administrative bodies of the finance ministry.
Supreme Court's attention was drawn by Tata to the investigation committee's incompetence to take any action against the service providers. However, the Finance Ministry officials affidavit revealed to the court that the as per the context the matter went in to the telecom ministry's department.
Mr Tata also said that the inquiry conducted was insufficient. He also said that the limited inquiry by the Indian government does not justify the petition filed against the scam.
The Indian Government has rebound as it is not taking the responsibility for the leak of Niira Radia tapes and pleading for the inadequacy to regain the transcripts which are already out.
The 2G spectrum scam includes Indian government officials and ministers illegitimately charging less from the mobile companies for the frequency allocation of the licenses which the government will use to generate 2G subscriptions for the mobiles . As per the report issued by Comptroller and Auditor General on the money generated from 3G licenses, the loss accounted was for Rs 176,379 crore.
