A pan-India mobile permit includes 4.4 MHz of start-up GSM spectrum or 2.5 MHz of CDMA airwaves available in all the 22 regions. Presently, telecom services need separate licenses for each type of service such as GSM, CDMA, 3G, broadband wireless (4G), internet, Direct-to-Home and radio.

Hence they have come up with a new telecom policy where mobile permits would not be linked with spectrum. This will be called Unified license. The total requirement for this license will be Rs.25 crore where Rs 2.5 crore is for each Service area level and Rs.25 lakh for each District level Unified license.
