Reliance Jio got spectrum for all 22 circles in 1800 MHz band and nowhere in 900 MHz band.


in 13 circle… not in 22


People are saying that RJio will takeover Videocon.
RJio left 5 circles of Videocon (UP-E, UP-W, Bihar – JKD, Haryana & Punjab.
But purchased Gujarat & MPCG, Videocon has the Guj & MPCG license.

Also, RJio did not bid for Rajasthan, HP, J&K….

If RJio is planning to takeover Videocon, why they bid for Gujarat & MPCG? Can admin/anyone justify ???
