Mobility required while on move !

27 Aug 2009 - 9:21am | bishwajeetsinha

The mobility business is so over-whelmed by profit factor that seldom any operator pays any heed to the actual need of mobile end-user in general. Today, Assam is no more a category-C license area, but very lucrative business generating state with ARPU ( average revenue per user), a term used by telcos to analyze revenue against RoI(return on investment), at-par with many high revenue states. This is the reason why besides Airtel, Aircel, BSNL, Tata, Reliance ( these 2 companies are venturing into pan-india dual technology launch of GSM besides CDMA), Vodafone many new entrants are in pipe-line to do mobile business in Assam and whole North-East, namely IDEA, Loop, Datacom, Shyam, MTS, Unitech etc. are either in the phase of launch or waiting for spectrum allocation by Govt.


But, while travelling by road or rail actual coverage by private operators are some what better than incumbent BSNL, but not satisfactorily. Especially, the data transfer rate by almost all operator is very less in GPRS technology, so the business person on move feels cheated on what they were promised and what they get is quite different. Coming to general voice coverage on move, it is really painful to see virtually no signal while on board to bus, train and trying to get connected is really very tough.


So, it is high time that besides making profit from subscriber, operators spend some money back on providing continuous signals to mobile users while on move. This will make the mobility not only affordable to all, but in true sense end-user will be very happy to guaranteed mobility on move.

Tough Act to deal with ponzi scam

15 Dec 2014 - 10:35pm | AT News

Beware chit fund companies operating in Assam. A set of tough law is on the anvil to deal with these elements. Parliamentary affairs minister Nilomoni Sen Deka introduced the Assam Protection of Interests of Depositors (in Financial Establishments) (Amendment) Bill, 2014 in the assembly on Monday. The Bill if passed would be very tough and nobody would get anticipatory bail under this Act.

According to the Bill, Notwithstanding anything contained in section 438 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, no Court shall grant anticipatory bail to any person apprehending arrest in connection with an offence under this Act.

The Bill also proposed to compound offences punishable under the Act "on payment of the entire amount due to the depositors with or without interest".
