Following the Supreme Court's order canceling 122 telecom licenses, Telenor has already filed a review petition at the Apex court. The Norwegian major had bought 67.25% stake in a joint venture with Unitech for about USD 1.2 billion and operates in India under the brand Uninor.

The telecom company today informed the Government of India that it will invoke the provisions of the Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA) between India and Singapore if its investments are not protected.
