New Delhi, Nov 19 (IANS) The government Monday came under fire for not complying with the Supreme Court's order to auction the entire spectrum that became available following the cancellation of 122 2G licences in 22 circles in February.

The court directed the telecom secretary to file an affidavit as to why there was no total compliance of its Feb 2 order, directing the allocation of spectrum in 2G band by way of auction.

The direction to the telecom secretary came after the apex court bench of Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan rejected an affidavit filed on the issue by an under secretary.
