Reliance Jio cleared for laying cable in Trivandrum, Kerala

By October 13th, 2014 AT 12:27 PM

Reliance Jio has finally got clearance to lay cables and install towers in Trivandrum, Kerala. Couple of days ago we reported that Reliance Jio will be  launching 4G services in Kerala  by December 28.

As reported by Economic Times, Trivandrum Corporation has cleared the approvals for installing 827 poles and laying cables for a total distance of 31.49km. RJio still awaits clearance from District Telecom Committee (DTC) and needs permit from Kerala State Electronic Board (KSEB), BSNL, Kerala Water Authority (KWA) and PWD for laying the cables.

RJio had earlier applied for permissions to lay towers twice, the first time in 2013 and again in 2014. The corporation had earlier rejected applications filed by RJio for setting up mobile towers in the city on the ground that the application did not contain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from Airport Authority of India (AAI). As per rules, NOC from AAI is mandatory for all tower constructions within a radius of 20km around the airport.

Reliance is aggressively laying cables and towers across the country but was having hurdles in Kerala to get necessary permits from local authorities. Now they have managed to obtain permits at least in Trivandrum.

Do you think Reliance can launch 4G service in Kerala by December 28, do let us know via comments?

But i thought that it could be Grandscale PAN india launch after the development of all the necessary infrastructure in place pan india and that could be second revolution in the telecom sector in india by Mr Mukesh ambani with respect to data earlier it was voice on account of which we are enjoying low and competitive tariff rates today

THE SLOGAN OF RJIO WOULD BE- KARLO INTERNET HIGHWAY KO MUTTI MEIN !!!!
