MEGA MERGERS......
If someone had slipped into a coma in 1992 only to wake up 25 years later, he would find Indiaís telecom sector unrecognisable in more detail than what Rip Van Winkle found America following the Revolutionary War. Itís wartime now. First up came the announcement of a merger between Vodafone and Idea. By the time one digested this news, Bharti Airtel had announced it was gobbling Telenorís India operations. Then comes the merger of RCom, Aircel, MTS and Tata Telecom. Phew. Clearly, the big boy of corporate India, Mukesh Ambani, has their hair lock firmly in his hand, following Jioís capture of a 100 million users in 100 days. There is the prospect of yet another big ticket. The multi-pronged merger is the biggest wave of consolidation in telecommunication after the sector was opened to private players, 20 years plus ago, in 1995.
