Staff Reporter :
The disagreement between Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) and telecom operators Grameenphone and Robi will be resolved
 through discussions within three weeks, Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal said on Wednesday.
He was speaking in a press briefing with Telecom and ICT Minister Mustafa Jabbar at his office, where Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Grameenphone Michael Foley, among others, was present.
The Finance Minister said, "The conflict with the mobile operators GP and Robi over their failure to pay unpaid dues will be resolved through discussions within three weeks".
Earlier, the finance minister held a meeting with Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC), Grameenphone and others.
Kamal said it was decided in the meeting that the BTRC will withdraw the show cause notice issued to the Grameenphone and Robi.
Besides, the two operators will also withdraw the case filed with a Dhaka court, he said.
On September 5, BTRC issued show cause notices to Mobile carriers Robi and Grameenphone asking them to explain within 30 days as to why their licenses would not be cancelled for not paying the dues.
Robi and Grameenphone, on August 25 and 26 respectively, filed two cases with a Dhaka court, seeking permanent injunctions on the telecom regulator's audit claims of Tk 13,447 crore.
