Tata Docomo, a well-known telephone operator especially popular in central India, was recently surrounded by rumors suggesting it might shut down by the end of the year. This buzz started a few days ago, but when I talked to their customer care, they assured me that the company is not closing anytime soon. To get the full story, keep reading because I’ve dug deep into this issue for you.
The Initial Concerns: Selling or Surrendering?
Not long ago, the Tata Group approached the Indian Government with plans to either sell or surrender their telecom spectrum. At that time, Tata Docomo was operating in 19 telecom circles across India, including major areas like Mumbai and Delhi. They were considering stopping their operations after facing continuous losses.
The Big Change: Tata Docomo’s New Future
Just when we thought Tata Docomo might announce its shutdown, something unexpected happened. Tata sold the telecom company to Bharti Airtel, one of India’s largest telecom operators. This means Tata Docomo’s ownership transferred to Bharti Airtel Limited.
Tata Docomo’s Future with Airtel: No Shutdown in Sight
So, what does this mean for Tata Docomo now? Well, it’s good news! The shutdown isn’t happening. Now owned by Airtel, Tata Docomo isn’t just surviving; it’s expanding. Recently, the company installed over 1500 new towers in Madhya Pradesh (MP), where they have the strongest coverage compared to other states.
What About the Customers?
If you’re a Tata Docomo prepaid user, you might have received a message confirming that the services aren’t going to close. So, if you’re happy with Tata Docomo, there’s no need to switch operators through the Mobile Number Portability (MNP) process unless you want to.
