Bharti Airtel completes merger of Tata Tele’s consumer mobile businesses

Experts believe the move will lead to better network utilization, as spectrum will now be with Bharti Airtel along with enhanced customer base

Bharti Airtel and Bharti Hexacom on Monday announced the merger of the consumer mobile businesses (CMB) of Tata Teleservices (TTSL) and Tata Teleservices (Maharashtra) (TTML) with the two Bharti Group companies. This move spells better synergies and increased customer base for the country’s third-largest mobile service provider.

“Following the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal’s order directing the Department of Telecommunications to take the merger on record and approval of the schemes of arrangement by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT)-Delhi and NCLT-Mumbai, we are pleased to announce that the schemes of arrangement have become effective today i.e., July 1, 2019,” Bharti Airtel said in a joint statement with TTSL.

Consequently, all customers, assets, spectrum, and agreed liabilities of the consumer mobile businesses of TTSL and TTML now stand merged with Airtel.Experts believe the move will lead to better network utilization, as spectrum will now be with Bharti Airtel along with enhanced customer base.

As part of the merger, Airtel will absorb TTSL’s CMB operations in 19 telecom circles — 17 under TTSL and two under TTML. It also agreed to take over a small portion of the unpaid spectrum liability of TTSL.

The merger will bolster Airtel’s spectrum pool with significant additional 178.5 megahertz (MHz) spectrum in 1,800, 2,100, and 850 MHz bands, widely used for 4G.

The merger includes transfer of all customers and assets of TTSL CMB to Airtel.
