In the next phase of growth, the company plans to offer high end data services through an enriched VAS portfolio for urban consumers, and basic mobility services and Marathi VAS content for the rural audience.

We have constantly strived to cater to the growing communication needs of the people of this state, and are proud to be the first mobile operator to reach the 1 Crore mark. This successful journey is a result of the strong faith expressed by our 1 crore customers, and our dedicated efforts to reach out to establish mobile connectivity in the remotest corners of the state”.

In Maharashtra as well, Idea has strongly focused on penetrating deeper into the rural markets through various initiatives such as being part of Nokia Life Tools program; and the more recent ones being participation in Agri fairs like ‘Swabhimani krishi Mahotsav’ in Jaisinghpur, and Grameenon Ke Beech’ a series of fairs in small towns and villages across Maharashtra with 10,000 to 20,000 populace.

Always innovating, Idea has constantly delighted consumers with products and services that offer more value and are affordable.
