I don’t like Reliance or the AVOIDs(Airtel-VOdaphone-IDea), also i hate this kind of MARKETING STRATEGY,What kind of marketing strategy is this???If they plans to give some assistance in J&K why the hell they conduct press meeting and announce that we do this,that,so,blahh….in national medias??? They only need to inform their respective customers.People living on flood affected districts won’t use or search in Telecomtalk to find latest telecom news nor they even won’t have seen a newspaper for days.So I request the government to include MORAL SCIENCE as a subject in every sem of IIMs.


Rcom shud install many.more temporary pco in areas’s network is up.
