Indus is a bankrupt company. It is not able to pay rent for the sites. Area managers are asking for bribe otherwise threatening to shift the tower. The problem is not only with the local level, higher officials too are not paying attention to the emails sent to them. When owners shut down the site, the area manager prayed and promised to pay the arrears in 10 days. But promise was broken and their phones are not being attended.
The operators which are attached to Indus will be hurt when the sites will be closed permanently.
