distinction of offering the most customer friendly and competitive Pre Paid offerings,
for the first time in India, with 'Super Power', 2 Minutes Outgoing Free, Lifelong offer

Our mission
Our Circle

The Indian telecommunications market for mobile services is divided into 23


Circles. There are four metropolitan Circles, covering the cities of Mumbai,
Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai, and 19 Circles classified by the Government as category
A, category B or category C, which cover the rest of India. These
classifications are based principally on a Circles revenue generating potential, with
metropolitan and category A Circles having the highest revenue potential.

Established Circles
We operate in the metropolitan Circle of Delhi, the category A Circles of
Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra, and the category B Circles of Haryana,
Kerala, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh (West).
Licenses for the Maharashtra and Gujarat Circles were awarded to us in
December 1995, with network rollout and commercial launch achieved in 1997.
Subsequently, in January 2000, we merged with Tata Cellular Limited, the mobile
operator in the Andhra Pradesh Circle, and integrated its operations into ours by
January 2001. In February 2001, we acquired RPG Cellcom Limited, the mobile
operator in the Madhya Pradesh Circle, with full integration of this Circle with ours
achieved by June 2001. We acquired the license for the Delhi Circle during the fourth
mobile license auction in October 2001, with network rollout and commercial launch

by November 2002. Escotel Mobile Communications Private Limited (Escotel),


which we acquired in January 2004, was awarded the original licenses in the Circles
of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh (West) and Kerala. We re-branded these Circles and
integrated them with ours by June 2004.

New Circles
In connection with the acquisition of Escotel, we also acquired Escorts
Telecommunications Limited (Escorts), which was awarded licenses for the New
Circles. Due to certain existing license conditions we were unable to complete the
transfer of shares of Escorts until June 2006. However, we ensured that Escorts met
the first phase of network requirements for these New Circles in June 2005 in
accordance with the relevant licenses (as amended following the payment of a penalty
by us on behalf of Escorts).
Following significant investment by us in the roll-out of the network in the
New Circles, amounting to approximately Rs. 4,678 million upto September 30, 2006,
we were able to achieve full commercial launch of mobile services in the New Circles
between September and November 2006 in a manner which also met the network rollout requirements of the licenses which were to be completed by June 2007.

Idea Cellular Ltd has seen phenomenal growth since its inception. Idea Cellular's
footprint idea is to first achieve critical mass, then drill deep instead of spreading thin.

In keeping with this, the company has been providing excellent service to its
subscribers in various states. It controls a portfolio of India's most attractive and contiguous

telecom geographies, including the circles of Andhra Pradesh & Delhi (inclusive of NCR),
Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh,

(E). With a footprint dominating the map of India, Idea Cellular accesses over 60% of India's
total telephony potential. The company is now poised to launch its services in new circles namely Mumbai and Bihar.
Idea Cellular Ltd, however, does not believe only in increasing geographic footprint it also drills deep and successfully attempts to provide excellent network coverage in all its
circles of operations.
Brand Information
The brand Idea
It is almost impossible to disintegrate brand Idea from the corporate Idea. Brand
values are the company values and vise versa.
Brand Vision: It goes without saying that the brand vision of idea mirrors the companys
vision. The brand mission statement is...... To be the most customer-focused mobile service
brand, continuously innovating to help liberate our customers from the shackles of time &
space.

It is these brand values, which have made us a formidable player in the telecom industry.
Innovations that stimulate the customer and liberate him from the shackles of time and space
are the core of our brand. This is what we strive for. Nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.

Brand Initiatives
Our aim, through media buying and planning, is to create year round impact.
With the objective of strengthening our brand, we work with strategic communication
partners on campaigns like sponsorship of the Idea International Indian Film
Academy awards and the television programs Idea Rocks India, Idea Star Singer
and Idea Andhra Idol. We seek engagement with subscribers on a variety of levels,
from major celebrity fashion shows to small local events timed to coincide with new
product offerings.
Since August 2003, we have commissioned a Brand Track Index Study to
evaluate the health of our brand. The Brand Track Index Study is a monthly study
conducted by TNS, a marketing consultant engaged by us to evaluate our brand using
face-to-face interviews on a random sample of mobile users a well as those intending
to purchase mobiles within the next three months. According to the study our brand is

perceived as reliable/trustworthy and one that offers cheaper and good promotional
offers. We have improved our rating in the Brand Track Index calculated by the study
in the past year reflecting, we believe, the growing strength of our brand.
The main communication medium for the Idea brand is television, where we
seek strategic Idea brand coverage in various formats. Billboards and hoardings are
used as a secondary medium, customized for specific regional preferences to
communicate effectively at the local level. We also use other mass communication
media such as the press and radio to communicate price plans and other tactical and
customer information.
All our key initiatives are subjected to a rigorous testing and launch process to

Roaming
Roam Like Home - with IDEA
Now you have one more reason to select Idea network while roaming in India. You
can enjoy a Roam Like Home experience even while roaming. IDEA is the first
telecom operator in India to offer this facility to its valued roamers.
We present a host of very convenient & friendly features Dial directly from your phone book. You can call numbers saved in your phonebook,
without adding STD or ISD codes to the entries. This saves you the bother of
remembering

the

concerned

codes

or

manually

dialling

every

number.

Ex: If you are a customer from UAE and you have saved your home telephone
number in your phonebook as 506123456. Now when roaming with Idea, you can call
the same number directly, without prefixing +971 (ISD dialling code for UAE) each
time you want to call home!
Auto call correction of all misdialled calls. When you dial a new number, this
service will complete your call even if a wrong or incomplete prefix has been added
to the number.
Direct access to your Voicemail box. Now you can make extensive use of
your VMS feature, even while roaming. Dial your voicemail short code directly
without any authentication codes.
Direct dialling to your home customer care number. Ex: If you have saved the
customer care number of your mobile operator as 12345 in your phone book, you can

call them at the same number even while you are roaming (which would not have
been possible otherwise)

LIMITATIONS

LIMITATIONS

There are a few limitations to the study that may arise due to the following reasons:

1) Sampling plan: The sampling is done through random sampling; generally through
mall intercept interviews, which might distort the results but not to a very great
extent.
2) The Area of study: Moradabad city might not hold good as a representative for the
whole of India and hence the survey is location specific.
3) Time: time duration is too limited
4) Difficulties in the identification of the source.
