CBI questions ex Trai chief on 2G scam.
Misra, in January 2008, had reportedly objected to the first- cum- first- serve policy on spectrum allocation to new operators without specifying its availability.
CBI sources said Misra had also objected to Trai not being consulted on intricate issues related to the allocation. He had also served as telecom secretary before taking over as Trai chairman.
A 1966 batch UP cadre IAS, Misra was also asked to clarify exchange of letters between him and the DoT. Misra had reportedly recommended that the unified access service licenses ( UASL) be allocated keeping in view market dynamics and not on the basis of fee structure fixed in 2001.
Former telecom minister Arun Shourie had earlier said Misra had told the PM that A. Raja was not adhering to the recommendations.
