Statement from Gotal Vittal, Managing Director, Bharti Airtel

Gotal Vittal commented, “We ended the year on a strong note with consistent performance across all businesses. We saw growth in customer metrics and financial parameters. Our India revenue grew by 1.7% with an EBITDA margin of 54.1%. Despite challenges such as devaluation of the Nigerian Naira, we added new smartphone customers and achieved an industry-leading ARPU of Rs 209.”

He further added, “Our focus on improving customer experience led to a 20% reduction in churn rate. Our clear strategy and execution excellence resulted in a high market share across all businesses. We are accelerating our efforts in digitization, which is transforming all aspects of our operations. However, the industry’s low return on capital employed persists due to lack of tariff correction.”
