Last year, BTRC issued a letter to Robi demanding payment of Tk867.23 crore

The High Court has ordered telephone operator Robi Axiata Limited to settle Tk138 crore of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission's (BTRC) audit claim in five installments.

BTRC's lawyer Barrister Khandakar Reza-E Raquib confirmed the news to Dhaka Tribune on Sunday.

On July 31 last year, BTRC issued a letter to Robi demanding payment of Tk867.23 crore. 

On August 25 the same year, Robi filed a case against the payment demand with a lower court and sought temporary injunction on the BTRC’s letter which was turned down. 

Robi then filed an appeal with the High Court on October 22 seeking temporary injunction on the BTRC’s letter seeking payment. 

Robi owes Tk867.23 crore to the government, including Tk197.21 crore to the National Board of Revenue, according to the BTRC audit. 

On September 5, the telecom regulator issued show-causes notices to Robi and Grameenphone, seeking explanation as to why their 2G and 3G licences should not be revoked for failure to pay dues within 30 days.
