B&E Indicators

Issue Date - 09/06/2011
India adds 11.1 GSM users in April

Though the total GSM subscriber base in India touched 580.7 million in April 2011, the net subscriber addition, at 11.1 million, was the lowest in the last one year. Subscriber addition, at 2.5 million, stood highest in Idea taking its total subscriber base to 92 million. Idea was followed by Bharti & Vodafone, which added 2.4 million subscribers each, taking their total subscriber base to 164.6 million & 137 million, respectively.

Broad-based weakness

While Idea managed to grow its market share in total GSM subscriber slightly to 15.8% in April 2011 from 15.7% in March 2011, Bharti’s market share declined to 28.3% from 28.5% in March 2011 due to soft net subscriber additions. BSNL too lost its market share to new players (particularly Uninor) to 15% from 15.2% in March 2011. However, Vodafone sustained its market share at 23.6%.
