What is AGR in Telecom?

Telecom companies are required to pay a three percent spectrum fee of AGR and an eight percent license fee to the government. The companies calculated the AGR based on the 2015 decision of the Telecom Tribunal. The tribunal had said at the time that AGRs would be included in the AGR, excluding revenue from non-core sources such as rent, profit from the sale of permanent property, dividend and interest. Whereas the Department of Telecommunications considers rent, profit from the sale of a permanent property and the amount received from the sale of junk in AGR. It is on this basis that they are demanding outstanding fees from companies.
