This will hamper the growth of telecom companies in india. This could again lead to raise of tariffs. Undigitalizing india ( at a very fast pace).


Who is to be blamed ? These wrongdoers ? Definitely not. We can’t expect everybody to be honest at all the times ! Blame the system and those who are mandated to oversee such possible activities. Book them first. Ironically we live in a system entrenched in greed and corruption. Feel dejected when our minister boast of catching Rs. > 4000 crores black money holderd who stashed abroad and reading this post involving Rs. >10000 crores just beneath the nose of minister ! God save our Motherland !
