BSNL sees cellular base rising to 62 lakh by March

State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd expects to add another 10-15 lakh cellular subscribers, taking its total cellular base in the country to about 62 lakh by March 31, 2004 from the existing 48 lakh.

"Our current cellular subscriber base stands at close to 48 lakh users. During the current year itself we have added 26 lakh customers, till now. We expect to add anywhere between 10-15 lakh more customers between now and March 31, 2004," BSNL chairman and managing director VP Sinha told PTI.

With the new additions in place, Sinha said the company's cellular subscriber base would stand close to about 62 lakh customers by March 2004.

BSNL's current fixed line subscriber base is pegged at 3.51 crore, while in the case of WLL it is about 7.35 lakh.

Commenting on the outlook for 2004-05, Sinha said: "We are looking at adding close to one crore for cellular, WLL and fixed line services combined."

Of this, as much as 70 per cent would come from the cellular segment.

"We expect our cellular subscriber base to reach 135 to 140 lakh by March 31, 2005," Sinha said.
