Trial and error

* THIS is apropos '2G spectrum auction: Govt receives bids over Rs 9,200 cr on Day 1' (IE, November 13). The 122 licences that were given earlier were cancelled by the Supreme Court after the controversy on the method of allocation. Most of the furore was centred on the speculative loss figure of Rs 1.76 lakh crore, cited in the CAG's report. Now the 176 blocks of spectrum that were put on auction have not been offered high prices. It is the government's trial and error method of doing business that has attracted criticism in the past and prompted opposition leaders to

stall Parliament.
