Norwegian telecom player Telenor’s India unit will scale down operations in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Orissa due to the continuing uncertainty around the 2G auction policy and timing, the telco said in a statement on Tuesday.
Unitech Wireless, which runs the Uninor brand, a joint venture between Telenor and Indian real estate major Unitech, has been severely impacted by the Sureme Court order cancelling 122 mobile permits in February this year. These permits were scrapped by the apex court in the backdrop of the investigations being done in the multi-billion dollar 2G spectrum sale scam. Uninor said it will stop acquiring new customers in the four circles, which has 6.8 million subscribers, after which it will issue a public notice announcing a gradual scale down of network over a period of time. A company executive said that the network and commercial scale down is a fallout of the delayed decision-making over the rules of the 2G spectrum re-auction.
Uninor has a total of around 400 direct employees in these four circles and it will evaluate possibilities of relocating some of the employees to other Uninor circles.
