Reasons for the decrease in Ntc profit in Q1, 079/80

  • Increase in the total operating revenue:
    • Increase in data subscription driving the revenue of Rs 11 crore, 40 lakhs in GSM Mobile data (2G/3G/4G).
  • Decrease in operating revenue:
    • Ntc sees lower tariffs in domestic interconnection as per the interconnection guidelines being a reason for the decline in its profits. Likewise, the incremental growth of OTT services resulted in a revenue decline of Rs 10 crore. Again, the use of OTT has impacted the company’s earnings in Voice services.
    • Sites not coming into operation due to electricity outages and delay in repairing because of adverse weather.
    • Changes in the telecom charges as per the Financial Act, of 2079, impacted the company’s total revenue.
    • The economic impact of Covid-19 also affected the purchasing power of the customers.
