The minister further added that - even though Government asked all private telecom companies to improve the infrastructure,  they are not improving services which are 'very bad'. Private telecom companies are concentrating only in increasing their customer base.

The Minister said - Government is very serious in the call drop issue and is closely monitoring the quality of service of mobile companies. Government is also taking effective steps to rectify the problem of call drops. Of the total 18 lakh mobile towers of private companies across the country, a survey has found 35,000 towers to be faulty. 

While 20,000 such towers have been rectified, still 15,000 faulty towers are to be set right. My department is monitoring it and have been asking private companies for investing and improving the infrastructure - the minister added.
 
The minister further assured that, the Government will take more stern steps to improve the services. Due to government's efforts and pressure in the last three months, private mobile companies have installed 14,000 new towers and in Delhi alone 700 new mobile towers have come up.

Regarding TRAI's decision to impose penalty on telecom companies for call drop, the Minister said "As far as TRAI's decision is concerned, it will be implemented from January 2016."

The minister said -  "I will also bring BSNL in profit which was in 10,000 crore profit in 2004. BSNL is installing 25,000 more towers across the country in the last one month to improve the quality of service."

  2. Nonsense. Some of the public are mentally sick. They are not allowing towers to be installed due to pure ignorance especially Kerala Rajastan
