New Delhi: Stung by criticism that some big operators were allegedly hoarding spectrum, a leading telecom firm Vodafone said it was "ridiculous" to imply the incumbent players were resorting to such a measure.

Contending that no rules were violated in granting additional airwaves, Vodafone in a statement said no spectrum in excess of what was permissible has been granted to any mobile operator.

"There have been some reports in the media quoting certain operators on spectrum hoarding and it is ridiculous to imply that the incumbent GSM players are hoarding spectrum", the Vodafone statement said.

Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata had recently raised a debate alleging that "hoarding of spectrum by important players" for free is a real scam. However, Tata did not name any company.

As per available data, GSM majors like Bharti, Vodafone, Idea and state-owned BSNL, MTNL have spectrum beyond 6.
