Unfair to only blame telcos for call drops: Assocham


New Delhi: Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad already hinted, the operators would be penalised for call drops but  ASSOCHAM replied by saying that it is “unfair to blame operators only for call drops.” According to T V Ramachandran, Chairman of ASSOCHAM Telecom Council, fundamentally, once a cellular network has been set up and stabilised, call drops can only happen either if there is inadequate spectrum or there is not enough networks of towers to achieve satisfactory signal coverage of the service area. And in India, it is suffered from both these serious handicaps, he added.
