Sistema Shyam TeleServices Ltd, which will have to shut down by January 18 its services in all but one of India’s 22 telecommunications zones as a result of the court order, had last year filed a “curative” petition after the court dismissed its plea seeking review of the order.

Indian laws allow a “curative” petition, or further appeal, even after a review plea is dismissed. This petition is heard by three top Supreme Court judges.
