overlooking the basic constitutional postulates and established principles and

make recommendations which would deny people from participating in the

distribution of national wealth and benefit a handful of persons. Therefore,

even though the scope of judicial review in such matters is extremely limited, as

pointed out in Delhi Science Forum v. Union of India (supra) and a large

number of other judgments relied upon by the learned counsel of the

for grant of UAS Licences may have caused huge loss to the nation, we have no

hesitation to record a finding that the recommendations made by TRAI were

flawed in many respects and implementation thereof by the DoT resulted in

gross violation of the objective of NPT 1999 and the decision taken by the

Council of Ministers on 31.10.2003.
