3G Auction India: Day 24 Bids Shoot Up To Rs. 128.51B With 100% Activity Level

Bids moved up by around 15.23 billion over the previous two days of f India’s 3G Auction: price moved up by 7.4B (6.54%) during day 24 and Rs. 7.82B (6.48%) during day 25, to close at Rs. 128.51 B, 267% over the base price of Rs. 35 B set for pan-India spectrum.
