Vodafone-Idea: PMO seeks details of Merger from Telecom Department
Two telecom companies, even Dot had earlier said that this deal is expected to be cleared by the end of June.
[New Delhi]: The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has sought information from the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) about the merger process of Vodafone and Idea. According to media reports, this explanation has been sought from the PMO in a time when the deal is already delayed.
This step has been taken at a time when the Department of Telecom (DOT) is demanding clarification from the Legal Expert on this matter. This explanation has been sought in relation to the claims made by the two telecom companies for arrears.
Two telecom companies, even Dot had earlier said that this deal is expected to be cleared by the end of June. Sources with information related to the matter had said that the DOT officers presented before the PMO and informed about its current status in recent times. Another government official said, "The PMO has reviewed this matter and DOT has said that it is proceeding on the basis of legal opinion."
It is worth noting that in 2015, Vodafone had merged with its four subsidiaries Vodafone East, Vodafone South, Vodafone Cellular and Vodafone Dejilink Vodafone Mobile Services, which is now called Vodafone India.
