Grameenphone (Private mobile phone operator) on Sunday has provided Tk 1,000 crore to Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) in compliance with the Supreme Court order.

Hossain Sadat, Director, and Head of Regulatory Affairs of GP, handed over a pay order for the amount to BTRC Chairman Jahurul Haque at the BTRC office on Sunday.

Grameenphone respects the legal system of Bangladesh and following the order of the honorable Appellate Division the company has without prejudice made an adjustable deposit of Tk 1,000 crore to BTRC. Grameenphone disputes the validity of the

BTRC audit claim and this deposit should not be seen as an admission of liability, said a GP statement.

GP will continue negotiations with the authorities concerned to resolve the matter and it also hopes that its business environment will soon become normal and it’ll ensure quality services to its customers when,” also said a statement.

The review petition was filed after the apex court had directed Grameenphone on November 24 last year to pay Taka 2,000 crore to BTRC within three months (by February 23) against the demand of Taka 12,579.96 crore dug out by audit.
