“The planned capacity expansions and investments in the high-end technology centre and the customer service centres will create opportunities for employment and for skilling and training India’s rich talent pool,” the company said in a statement.

Vodafone, which has over 188 million subscribers in India, has announced plans to invest about Rs 13,000 crore in India for capacity augmentation and new business initiatives. In a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Vodafone Group CEO Vittorio Colao, reiterated its commitment to support government’s Digital India and Make in India initiatives.

Talking about some of its HR initiatives, the company today has a talent management process in place, which works on talent assessment and development. It also holds career chats with talent pool through its ‘Know your Talent’ (KYT) series. The interactions help the leadership team to get in touch with the identified talent, understand their aspirations and commitment to build initiatives and career moves.

The company also runs leadership development programs for talent pool at two levels – top 120 people level, and the next 550 people level. Such programs help in building both functional and leadership expertise for the top 20% of these groups.

Now 15000 employees will be forcing customers to buy postpaids and saying prepaid is not available. Once you lose your phone and by God’s grace if it was holding a prepaid Vodafone number than sorry, you have lost your number. King of malpractices: Vodafone

SUHAIL – Neither. Its AIRTEL – India’s largest network, been using same since 1999 and seen it evolve from a no-sms-calls-only 1G network to the 4G giant it is today.

I think he asked the Keralites. Are you from Kerala or anyway closely related to it. And as my fellow tt readers have suggested, they have pretty bad service there.

frankly craptel uses BSNL structure obtained by illegal means to provide services which BSNL gives at a fraction of cost.

also craptel service varies from place to place and in rural areas it is worse than BSNL. i found idea to be somewhat better but coverage is somewhat limited.

It depends on which district you are in… In kozhikode district vodafone 2g has more coverage than idea and in malappuram district its the opposite.. Don’t know about other districts as I doesnt travel much through other districts..

Well Voda has better rural coverage than Idea. I pref Vodafone for their valued customer service. Talking about 4g idea bought 10Mhz of 1800 band were as Voda spent for only 5Mhz of sameband. 4g data congestion would be less on Idea
