Hi Dude.. How COAI told Videocon Lost 95,010 subscribers.. Any body pls explain it…

it means subsciber base of videocon is decreased by 95,010 subscribers and that also take account of customers who are inactive for a long time means when minimum 6 months periods end after 180 days or 90 days as the case may be the cusromers who are inactive no longer treated as customers……bhai now its clear….?
