]teport on New! in Whispers in _Corridor

There is a whisper in Whispers in Corridors which states that "the uncrowned Maharaja of Indian Telecom (implying Shri Sunil Mittal ) is banking on woman power (implying Neera Radia) to smoke the piece pipe with India's Telecom Minister A Raja in midst of a major global take over & his appetite for precious spectrum ": (The Detailed whisper is given at Annexure I)

This whisper can be better understood in the following context:

Telephone lines of Neera Radia and some of her associates have been put under observation. Neera Radia is chief of Vaishnavi Corporate Consultants Pvt Ltd, Noesis Consulting, Vitcom and Neucom Consulting (started in November 2008). Vitcom has been handling the business of NDTV Imagine while Neucomm was set up essentially for the purpose of handling the affairs of the Mukesh Ambani Group of industries, Vaishnavi handles the media affairs as well as.' 'environment management' for the Tata Group, Unitech, Star TV along with other corporate clients. While Noesis officially comprises of retired senior bureaucrats. it is controlled by Smt Radia and is involved in consulting in Telecom, power, Aviation and Infrastructure. These entities not only manage the media but also allegedly ensure that policy changes and decisions of the various government departments suit the commercial requirements oftheir clients. The group also interferes in the appointment of ministers so as to dovetail the same to the commercial interests oftheir clients.

Intercepted" Telephone conversations suggest that Neera Radia bas had a role to play in the managing of policy changes at the highest level of government including those leading to the award of Telecom license to Unitech Wireless. the Telecom arm of the Unitech, Swan Telecom, Aircell and for various other telecom operators. Very often, telephone conversations seem to suggest, a large number of confidential documents and policy papers seem to reach Smt Radia, Further Vaishnnvi through certain chartered accountant associates, who are entry operators, provide services for arrangement of adjustment entries and structured payoffs.

The following" are some otherinputs relating to teleeom sector picked ';IP from the conversations:

I. Mrs Radia is a very close associate of Sbri A. Raja, Telecom Ministerand has been instrumental "in getting licenses and spectrum to the following:

i, SwanTelecom

ii. Aircell

iii. Urtitech Wireless

iv. Datacom.

a. Of the above Datacom setup by HFCL group along with Mr. Dhoot of Videocon is alleged to be having funding through the Mukesh Ambani group and an employee of Reliance, Manoj Modi who is constantly in touch with Mrs. Radia.

b. Swan on paper backed by a Mumbai based real estate company, Oynamix Balwas group of companies was apparently through the efforts of Nira Radia favoured by Raja Minister for Telecom in allotment of license and also in the priority list of spectrum, in Delhi and Mumbai circle, as per the seniority list

TOP SECRET

prepared by the Department of Telecom.UAE's telecom giant Emirates Telecommunications Corp (Ehtisalat) controls about 45% of Swan Telecom for up to $900 million; This deal values Swan Telecom at $2 billion. At present Mauritius-based Delphi Investments Ltd holds 9.9% stake in Swan .. A 90.1 % stake in Swan Telecom is owned by Tiger Trustees Pvt. Ltd, which in turn is 99.8 per cent owned by Dynamix BaJwas Ltd which has allegedly received round tripped funds. The conversations seem to suggest that the minister Shri. A Raja and Mrs. Radia too have equity interest in Swan and her associates are to be put. on the board.

, 'c~' "Unitedl Wireless issues are covered separately below.

d. Aireell has as shall be explained seems to have some interest of the Tata

Group. .

2. There is a long conversation between Mr.· Ratan Tata and Mrs. Radia whieh establishes that Mr. Tata wanted to prevent Dayanidhi Maran from becoming telecom Minister at any cost. Apparently. Tata indirectly controls equity in Airce! through Maxis Communication and Apollo, Mr. Tata felt the need to' exit telecom (Tata Telecom or Aircell is not clear) in case Mr. Maran become Minister (telecom). '

3. Tata through Voltas is in touch with Ncera and Ratnam. CA of Ammal wife of M Karunanidhi, They are apparently going to construct a building in Chennai on a land, controlled by "Trill" with the Karunanidhi family as payoffDMK for keeping Maran out of Telecom,

4. On Mrs. Radia's &. Kanbnozhi's behalf Barkha Dutt &. Vir Sanghvi were negotiating for ministerial birth DMK members especially Raja with Congress members.

5. Airtel wanted Raja out and to take back spectrum provided. He terms ADAGgroup as Evil Empire.

6. Some close associates of Mrs. Radia in relation to this work are, (i) TaTUn Das, (ii) Vir Singhvi &. (iii) Sunil Arora lAS officer Rajsthan Cadre.

7. As mentioned earlier Mrs. Radia was very close to Ratnam, CA of Mrs. Karunanidhi (Ammal), Kanimozhi and off course Raja. She was to meet Raja in relation to their

common investment in Swan Telecom and other matters. .

8. Sunil MiHal of Bharti Airtel had been lobbying to prevent Raja from becoming Telecom Minister essentially for three reasons. first (i) GSM lobby aggrieved at the favor shown to CDMA lobby on spectrum; (ii) Mr. Mittal was lobbying for Dayanidhi Maran. (iii) there appears to be some irregularity in purchase of Vodafone's investment in Bharti Airtel this is being reported separateJy. Sunil Mittal contacted Mrs. Radia and wanted her to work for him on informal basis. Mrs. Radia said she would as long as there was no conflict of interest with TATA's. However. she would help him mend fences (for a fees with Telecom Minister Raja). There is a third person who apparently met Sunil Mittal at Sohail Seth's house who is acting 8S a link between Mr. Mittal and Mrs. Radia. (110537)

9. The same gentle man also spoke to Mr. Mukesh Ambaniwho expressed his reservation about Mrs. Neera Radia working for Mr. Mittal and so Mrs. Radia and this gentle man will do it on an informal basis.'

TOP SECRET

10. Apart from allegedly managingthejelecom license for Unitech, Smt Radia has handled' and facilitated cross border transfer of funds. Telenor has apparently purchased 60% of the equity for RI. 6120/- crore thereby valuing the project at over Rs. 10,000 crore and the value of the license at over Rs. 4000 crore. This is far in excess of the market. value of the telecom license and in the equity that is sought to be brought in within the next 12 months part of the round trip funds would make their way into India. Another conversation between Radia and Ajar Chandra suggest that the government is investigating the 'Telecom license issue has sought, details of sale of, interest in the telecom venture.The crux of the conversation is to 'stagger the inflow of funds and to give the Impression to the government that the funds have only come into the telecom company and that here has not been any 'windfall' Sain to the

promoters of Uniteeh f1$ such. '

11. Tatas have given Rs, 250 croes to Unitech through Neera Radla

Nirn Radia find Group

Telephone lines of Neera Radia and some of her associates have been put under observation after obtaining permission from the Home Ministry. Neera Radia is chief of Vaishnavi Corporate Consultants Pv1 Ltd, Noesis Consulting.Vitcom and Neucom Consulting (started in November 2008). Neucornm was set up essentially for the purpose of handling the affairs of the Mukesh Ambani Group of industries. Vaishnavi handles the media affairs as well as 'environment management' for the Tata Group, Unitech, Star TV along with other corporate clients. While

. .

Noesis officially comprises of retired senior bUreaucrats. it is eontrolledby Smt Radia and- is

involved in consulting in Telecom. Power, Aviation and Infrastructure. These entities not only manage the media but as per conversations apparently ensure that policy changes and decisions of the various government departments suit the commercial requirements of their clients. The group also interferes in the appointment of ministers so aSIO dovetail the same tothe commercial interests of their cl ients.

Telephone conversations made suggest that Neera Radia has had a role to play in the managing . of policy changes at the highest level of govemmentincludlngthose leading to the award of Telecom license to Unitech Wireless, the Telecom arm 'of the Unitech and for various other. telecom operators. Very often, telephone conversations seem to suggest, a large number of

confidential documents and policy papers seem to reach Smt Radia, Further Vaishnavithrough

certain chartered accountant associates, who are entry operators, provide services for arrangement.of adjustment entries and structured payoffs.

With regards to the Tata group telephone conversations with regards to the Tata group suggests that the entire media and political environment management.for the failed Singur project and the subsequent shifting to Gujrat were handled by Neera Radia and her associates. 111is included "managing" important CPT (M) Ieaders; (Neera apparently has an independent very good relationship with certain left front and Clro leaders).

Apart from allegedly managing the telecom license for Unitech, telephone conversations seem to hint that Smt Radia has either handled and facilitated cross, border transfer of fundsor is in the

know of the same. Lehmann brothers were supposed to invest three trenches in Unitech's Mumbai project. The first investment that was done was Rs. 740 crores towards 50% of Unitech's holdings in Shivalik Ventures Pvt ltd 1150-50 N SPY between Unitech and Rohan.' Devlopers Mumbai. The balance was to come in two tranches of around US$ 550 million. Analysis of a series of conversations reveal that of the investments to be routed into India through Lehman Brothers Real Estate Partners, investing "third party funds in real estate" at least a part comprised round tripped funds and when Lehmann brothers collapsed, only one tranche had come and the. balance was stuck. Conversations suggest that part of the funds would

,

be re-routed through the deal structured with the International partner in the sale of equity in the Unitech Telecom entity. The initial discussions appeared to be with Telecom Italia as wellas Telenor while the deal was finally closed with Telenor of Norway.

Another conversation' between Radia and Ajay Chandra of Unitech .suggest that tbe government is investigating the Telecom license issue and has sought details of sale of interest in the telecom venture. The crux of the conversation is-to stagger the inflow of funds and to give-the impression to the government that the funds have only come into thetelecom company and tbat here has not been any 'windfall' gain to the promoters ofUnitecbas such.

A series of conversation of the associates of Anil Bansal and RS. Bansal associates of Radia also suggest that Unitech group, apart from others had taken accommodation entries to the time ofRs. 200 to 300 crore Wider the guise of purchase of computer software from them apparently to ~e out cash and suppress income. Furtherthe operatorsclaim to have also provided loan entries so

- .

as to take out cash. The operators, nervous by the problems of Unitech and the fall of the stock

markets were keen to reverse these loan entries to prevent any future recoveries from them or their entities.

Nira Redia and Jehangir Pecha have been in touch with Chhajlani from Nayi Dunia They wanted NayiDunia should Front for someone else who wants to control a News Channel in Indiawhich later as per conversation turns out to be News 9x taken over from Peter and lndrani Mukherjee.
