本地齿轮供应商希望在Kochi-Lakshadweep Undersea Cable项目中播放水平播放领域:报告

印度电信设备公司声称,印度内阁去年12月批准的107.2亿卢比科奇-拉克沙德韦姆海底光缆项目的投标条件,将使他们退出投标竞争。BusinessLine报道。

新德里:印度人电信设备公司声称,107.2亿卢比的科奇-拉克沙德威的投标条件是在海底光纤电缆去年12月由日本内阁批准的link项目将使它们退出竞标竞争。BusinessLine报道。

出版物引用的政府消息人士表示,即使印度球员敦促这一点,某些招标文件条件也能使一个或两个外国制造商能够为该项目竞标电信部)Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited(BSNL.),将执行项目,启用级别播放字段。

虽然招标尚未浮现,行业诸如电信设备制造商协会(Tema)和博士学位的机构反对BSNL在Chennai-Andaman Nicobar群岛(Cani)的线条上建造招标的决定潜艇电缆项目

根据这两个行业机构的说法,争论点是,由于NEC领导的日本联盟赢得了Cani项目,因此可以利用母公司的经验借用该项目。印度的技术(NECTI)单标。

TEMA和PHDCC指控NECTI利用其母公司NEC Japan的经验赢得了这个项目。

“同样,印度公司可以使用外国财团合作伙伴的经验,以满足资格条件并参加完成KLI项目,”该出版物引用了Tema。

这两家公司还向国会议员举行了代表大会普拉斯·普拉斯突出,如果招标不是“技术不可知”,印度齿轮制造商将处于劣势。

TEMA和PHDCC也写信给总理办公室(PMO);内阁部长;原则科学顾问;镍钛Aayog首席执行官;电信部长;USOF管理员;以及BSNL CMD突出这个问题。

他们指出,由印度交通部组成的一个权力很大的委员会建议使用“重复技术”连接高知和迷你岛,而其余长度应该使用“无重复技术”。

“由于专门的电缆设计、昂贵的中继器和昂贵的海底线路终端设备(SLTE),中继技术变得昂贵。除此之外,重复电缆的维护也变得昂贵。在海底电缆损坏的情况下,重复电缆的维修费用为100万美元,而无重复电缆的维修费用仅为50万美元。然而,在600公里的距离内,根据高带宽和低损耗信号的要求,无重复信号技术就足够了。”

他们建议,如果政府决定继续在项目中继续预报技术,那么由于它们之间的差异,招标可以分为每种中继器和收益的技术的两段。

印度电信业倒退;从AGR、BSNL复兴、5G、IUC到2019年关税上调

    2019年发生了什么?

    2016年对电信行业来说是不可磨灭的一年,因为这标志着穆凯什·安巴尼(Mukesh Ambani)领导Jio进军该行业,导致行业收入陷入下行螺旋,老牌运营商(沃达丰(Vodafone)、Idea、巴蒂电信(Bharti Airtel))的利润和用户基础迅速萎缩。这个曾经繁荣的行业在2019年为该行业开辟了具有挑战性的新领域。由于一些重大发展,它不断出现在头条新闻中,让我们来看看是什么让印度电信行业在2019年一片繁忙。

    AGR打击:行业陷入疯狂

    2019年的亮点是最高法院对长期存在的计算AGR争端的判决,该争端使电信运营商和DoT陷入了超过15年的僵局。最后,最高法院在10月要求电信公司支付15年时间里累积的超期费用,因为它支持美国交通部的要求,即运营商在调整后的总收入中包括非电信服务收入;其中一部分由电信公司以许可费和频谱使用费的形式支付给政府。印度交通部声称的包括本金、罚金和利息在内的到期总额高达1.4万亿卢比,其中仅巴蒂电信和沃达丰就有8900亿卢比到期,这使他们成为最严重的受害者。

    沃达丰理念和Airtel的历史性损失,然后是Spectrum Charges的暂停救济

    在爆发的愤怒中,两家公司在截至9月的季度共亏损超过7400亿卢比,沃达丰Idea的份额为5.1亿卢比,这是印度企业有史以来最大的亏损。随后,印度最高法院收到了一系列请愿书,请求以某种形式得到救济,Birla集团和沃达丰(Vodafone Plc)的掌门人否认帮助这两家电信巨头摆脱困境。去年11月,该中心将2019-20财年和20-21财年的频谱费用推迟两年,以缓解电信公司眼下的现金危机,此举被视为缓解担忧的措施。但行业的救济需求并没有消失,因为专家认为,随着1月23日支付AGR会费的最后期限越来越近,SC在1月16日驳回了电信公司的救济请求,这一措施是不合适的。

    关税徒步地点燃恢复?

    CRISIL said that the revised tariffs will improve the industry’s average revenue per user (ARPU)--a key performance unit that has been in slump for the last seven quarters-- by about 25% to Rs 145 next fiscal from around Rs 116 in 2019. The impact of these remedial measures, however will unfold only in quarterly results ending March 2020, prior to which, January 23 deadline for AGR dues still continues to loom over with no relief in sight. While the experts have opined, 2020 could also see a potential fall in mobile user base as many users seek SIM consolidation and opt for a single mobile connection owing to higher tariffs and costlier minimum recharge plans.

    2017年,监管机构曾提议从2020年1月开始启动BAK(账单和保留)系统,届时提议的电信公司将保留通话金额,而不是支付。Jio的延期受到了老牌运营商沃达丰Idea和Bharti Airtel的欢迎,因为他们是净互连收入的来源,因为大多数Jio通话都是在他们的网络上结束的,这使得后者成为净付费方。Trai将原定于2020年1月废除该制度的日期推迟了一年,目前已使这两家负担沉重的运营商能够继续赚取一些现金流。

    政府向BSNL-MTNL提供生命线

    传统上被誉为国家战略资产的国有运营商BSNL终于得到了政府的批准,批准了一项旨在拯救自2010年以来一直亏损的PSU的复兴计划。10月,该中心批准了一项70亿卢比的复兴计划,计划合并BSNL和MTNL,以及其他重要措施,如4G电波的分配,价值3800亿卢比的资产货币化,价值1500亿卢比的主权债券和20万名员工的自愿退休计划,将为两大邦公司节省约880亿卢比的工资账单。

    然而,复兴方案本身似乎不足以缓解在实现方面出现的担忧。裁员对拟议合并实体运营水平的影响、吸引潜在竞购者参与货币化过程、在获得批准方面可能出现的官僚主义拖延等问题,仍然清晰地反映在各方面前。此外,正如ETT最近报道的那样,该中心的农村移动连接项目,如BharatNet、左翼极端主义II等项目,目前正在考虑公开竞标,这将允许私营企业也参与竞标,这可能会导致BSNL被边缘化。

    5G道路:拍卖推迟,政府认可华为的参与

    商业滚动从印度的雄心勃勃的5G技术中一直在悬挂在几年里,现在延迟看似伸展2020年。虽然该行业与政府发生冲突,但在3.3-3.6 GHz频段的频谱中竞争的高度定价和稀释的可用性,但由于AGR已有效地使运营商能够在本财政区内无法招标。

    尽管Airtel,Vodafone Idea,Jio和BSNL提交了在1月15日用DOT进行现场试验的申请,但行业专家仍然看到2022年的5G,因为电信公司的平衡表严重伤害缺乏货币净额来竞标最终拍卖。

    相比之下,新年前两天,12月30日,政府允许中国球员华为(阅读所有供应商)与电信玩家合作开展实地试验。在印度在华为的沉默中,在华为参与5G部署的沉默之后,搬家是在美国迫使印度向华为部署网络。然而,印度终于在这一问题上举行了一个职位,因为它是与其两个主要贸易伙伴 - 中国和美国的战略平衡保持战略平衡。

    2020年援助要求作为AGR付款到期日的方法

    SC于1月16日在1月16日被驳回的Airtel,沃达丰想法和Tata Teleservices的恳求,他们在11月份提交回来,要求法院审查其10月Agr裁决。Airtel和Vil表示,他们可能会在截止日期到期日期为1月23日提交疗法申请。分析师认为,拒绝向运营商扩展到运营商的任何帮助可能导致两位玩家行业。vil留在懒奇里可能会看到退出行业,因为KM Birla先前已经说过。

    关税修订被认为将该部门带到恢复,然而,在究竟在究竟将于1月23日缴纳耕国赔偿金额的截止日期,这令人清晰地阐明。

    此外,在2月1日欧盟预算到来之前,据报道,受到多种税收和税收拖累的行业已经向政府寻求援助,以降低监管税、税收和许可证费用的形式,以更低的利率获得信贷。此外,还要求从许可证费用和频谱使用费中取消商品及服务税。

The highlight of 2019 was Supreme Court\u2019s judgement on the long standing dispute of computing AGR that had the telecom operators and DoT in a deadlock for over 15 years. Finally, the apex court in October mandated telecom companies to pay their overdues accumulated over the 15 year span during which the matter had stretched as it upheld DoT\u2019s demand that operators include non-telecom service revenues in their adjusted gross revenue; a part of which is then paid by the telcos to the government in license fees and spectrum usage charges. The total amount that DoT asserted as due including the principal, penalty and interest on penalty worked out to be a massive Rs 1.4 lakh crore with about Rs 89,000 crore due from Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea alone making them the worst sufferers.<\/p>","seolocation":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/agr-blow-industry-caught-in-a-frenzy","seolocationalt":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/agr-blow-industry-caught-in-a-frenzy","mediaType":"1"},"_73274005":{"msid":"73274005","secsname":"Historic losses for Vodafone Idea and Airtel followed by spectrum charges' moratorium relief","ssname":"Historic losses for Vodafone Idea and Airtel followed by spectrum charges' moratorium relief","artdate":1579090238,"artag":"","overridelink":"","windowtype":"","caption":"

Amidst the furore that erupted, the two incumbents recorded combined losses of over Rs 74,000 crore in the quarter ending September, with Vodafone Idea\u2019s share being Rs 51,000 cr--the highest ever loss for a corporate in the country.

Another major closure got delivered on the interconnect usage charge issue with Trai deferring the implementation of the zero-IUC regime by a year that was slated to kick off starting January 2020, on account of \u201cinadequate adoption of 4G technologies by consumers and asymmetries in traffic\". IUC --a charge that a call-originating telco pays to the destination operator on whose network the call terminates--is pegged at Rs 6 paisa\/min.<\/p>

The regulator in 2017 had proposed to kickstart BAK (bill and keep) system from January 2020 where the call generating telco as proposed would keep the amount instead of paying it. The deferment has been welcomed by older carriers Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel as they are net interconnect revenue earners given most Jio calls end on their networks which makes the latter a net payer. By putting off the immediate January 2020 date set for scrapping the regime, by a year, Trai, for now has enabled the two saddled operators to continue earning some streams of cash flows.<\/p>","seolocation":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/respite-for-old-telcos-with-iuc-scrappage-deferred-by-a-year","seolocationalt":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/respite-for-old-telcos-with-iuc-scrappage-deferred-by-a-year","mediaType":"21"},"_73273781":{"msid":"73273781","secsname":"Government throws lifeline to BSNL-MTNL","ssname":"Government throws lifeline to BSNL-MTNL","artdate":1579090238,"artag":"","overridelink":"","windowtype":"","caption":"

The national carrier- BSNL that has traditionally been hailed as a strategic asset for the country finally got government\u2019s nod on a revival plan set out to save the PSU that has been ringing losses since 2010. In October, the centre approved a Rs 70,000 crore revival plan devising BSNL and MTNL to be merged along with other significant measures like allocation of 4G airwaves, asset monetisation worth Rs 38,000 crore, Rs 15,000 crore worth of sovereign bonds and voluntary retirement scheme for the combined 2 lakh employees that will save about Rs 8,800 crore in wage bills for the two state majors.<\/p>

However, the revival package itself does not seem enough to assuage concerns that arise on the implementation front. Questions around impact of cutting down workforce on the proposed merged entity\u2019s operational caliber, roping in prospective bidders for the monetisation process, potential bureaucratic delays in getting approvals among others still continue to echo clear. Further, as recently reported by ETT, the centre\u2019s rural mobile connectivity initiatives of about Rs 20,956.23 crore, like BharatNet, Left-Wing Extremism II-- among several others are now being considered for open bidding that would allow private players to also bid, which could lead to BSNL being sidelined. <\/p>","seolocation":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/government-throws-lifeline-to-bsnl-mtnl","seolocationalt":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/government-throws-lifeline-to-bsnl-mtnl","mediaType":"1"},"_73273749":{"msid":"73273749","secsname":"5G road: Auction getting delayed while government nods Huawei's participation","ssname":"5G road: Auction getting delayed while government nods Huawei's participation","artdate":1579090238,"artag":"","overridelink":"","windowtype":"","caption":"

Commercial roll out of the ambitious 5G technology in India has been in a hang for years now with the delay seemingly stretching over and beyond 2020 as well. While the industry has been in conflict with the government over what it contends as high pricing and scanty availability of the spectrum in the 3.3-3.6 GHz bands, the financial knockout on account of AGR has effectively made the operators incapable of bidding within this fiscal. <\/p>

Even though Airtel, Vodafone Idea, Jio and BSNL submitted applications to conduct field trials with DoT on January 15, industry experts still see 5G coming to India by 2022 since telcos having their balance sheets badly bruised lack monetary headroom to bid for the final auctions. <\/p>

In contrast, just two days before the new year, on December 30, the government allowed Chinese player Huawei (read all vendors) to conduct field trials in partnership with the telecom players.

NEW DELHI: Indian telecom<\/a> gear companies have alleged that the tender conditions of the Rs 1,072 crore Kochi-Lakshadweep undersea optical fibre cable<\/a> link project, approved by the Cabinet last year in December, will leave them out of the bidding race. reported BusinessLine.

Government sources cited by the publication say that certain tender document conditions would enable one or two foreign gear makers to bid for the project even as Indian players have been urging the
Department of Telecommunications<\/a> (DoT<\/a>) and Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL<\/a>), which will execute the project, to enable a level-playing field.

Though the tender is yet to be floated,
industry<\/a> bodies such as the Telecom Equipment Manufacturers Association (TEMA) and the PHD Chambers of Commerce have objected to BSNL\u2019s decision of framing the tender on the lines of the Chennai-Andaman Nicobar Islands (CANI) Submarine Cable Project<\/a>.
