BHUBANESWAR: To help people connect with each other in the aftermath of devastation by cyclone Phailin, a mobile telephone service provider is offering free talk time in Odisha.

Reliance Communications is offering a daily free recharge of 10 minutes for a period of five days, from October 20 to its customers on both the CDMA and GSM platforms to ensure that they stay connected with their loved ones in this hour of need, a company release today said.

Given that electricity supply has been disrupted in many districts in the state, Reliance Communications has stepped up relief and support measures for cyclone and flood-affected people of Odisha by setting up battery-charging centers at company stores and key markets in affected areas.

In many areas, electricity connection is yet be restored.

“Our immediate efforts were to ensure that our network was up and running with no disruptions and outages–special crisis management cells were put in place to prevent or control network outages in the first few days after the natural disaster,” said Sabyasachi Chakraborty, regional head (east), Reliance Communications.

Most of the mobile towers in the state are running on alternative sources of energy, and this enables the company to put up charging stations so that people in these areas can keep their phones charged and work while waiting for restoration of power in their homes.

100% FDI in telecom to spur interest in upcoming auctions: BofA  

0

PTI : NEW DELHI, JUL 21 2013, 15:20 IST

Government’s decision to fully open the cash-starved telecom sector is expected to renew interest from foreign players in the upcoming spectrum auctions, global financial major Bank of America Merrill Lynch says in a report.

Last week, the government permitted 100 per cent foreign direct investment in telecom, versus the 74 per cent ownership cap earlier.

“The policy initiative offers fresh hope of capital availability for an industry whose indebtedness is steep and equity-options were hitherto constrained by ownership complications,” the Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BofA-ML) report said.

Moreover after two failed spectrum auctions in last 12 months, “the 100 per cent FDI move offers hope of renewed interest from foreign majors in upcoming spectrum auctions,” the report added.

In November 2012 and March 2013, the government had put on auction more than half of the spectrum that was freed after the Supreme Court in February last year cancelled 122 mobile permits issued by the then Telecom Minister A Raja in 2008.

The auctions got tepid response from operators and fetched the government a fraction of the sum that was projected.

According to BofA-ML, the opening up of the telecom sector is just a first step and more policy improvements are likely. Further policy improvements especially with regard to spectrum pricing and allocation are needed.

“We expect the government to address concerns over steep reserve prices for spectrum – auctions and caps on spectrum ownership,” the report said.

On July 11, telecom regulator TRAI said it had received reference from DoT seeking recommendation on spectrum price for third round of auctions and would start consultation process shortly.

In terms of companies, Bharti and Idea which already have large foreign partners (SingTel and Axiata) and are less likely to be M&A targets, the report said.

Reliance Communications has the highest leverage, besidesRCom does not have any strategic foreign partner so far, it added.

As per the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) Foreign Direct Investment in India’s telecom sector plunged to USD 93 million in the April 2012-January 2013 period.
