The long-awaited 5G spectrum auction is expected to be held in May this year if the TRAI submits by March its recommendations on the rules regarding the sale process, according to a senior official of the telecom department.

Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw earlier this month said the TRAI has informed that it will submit its recommendations for the 5G auction by March and the Department of Telecommunications is simultaneously firming up other processes to hold the auction at the earliest.
