byodThere was no way this would have happened if liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation had not been aggressively chased by consecutive governments. Telecom sector was among the first few sectors to be reformed, and one which transformed dramatically as it was gradually deregularised.

In the last 25 years, as the government loosened control, India’s teledensity jumped from 0.8% in 1990 to 83.32%, as on April 2016.
