CELLULAR COMMUNICATIONS INTERNATIONAL AND STERLING COMPUTERS PROVISIONAL AWARD OF NEW DELHI LICENSE CHALLENGED IN INDIA'S SUPREME COURT

 NEW YORK, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellular Communications International Inc. ("CCII") (NASDAQ: CCIL) announced today that it has now received official notification that the Indian government's Department of Telecommunications (DOT) has provisionally awarded Sterling Cellular Ltd. one of two GSM cellular licenses for the Indian city of New Delhi. Sterling Cellular Ltd. is a joint venture company owned 50 percent by Sterling Computers Ltd. of Madras, India and 50 percent by CCII.
 Thomas Tesluk, senior vice president of CCII, noted, however, that press reports indicate that at least one of the affected parties has filed a petition in India's Supreme Court moving against the new DOT decision and naming as respondents all recipients of awards for the cities of Bombay, Delhi, Calcutta and Madras.
 CCII had previously announced in October of 1992 that Sterling Cellular had been provisionally awarded one of two GSM cellular licenses for the city of Madras. This decision, together with all the license awards for the cities of Bombay, Delhi, Calcutta and Madras, was successfully challenged in the Delhi High Court, and the DOT was subsequently ordered to reevaluate these awards and the applications of the two petitioners. The provisional award of a New Delhi license to Sterling Cellular Ltd. is a result of the DOT's reevaluation.
