(which includes Digital TV operations, Corporate Offices and
new projects in India & South Asia), it has suffered Ebitda
loss of Rs 2.02 billion, as compared to an Ebitda loss of
Rs 2.21 billion in the corresponding quarter of the previous
revenue from the segment saw a 90 per cent jump to Rs 3.7
billion from Rs 1.95 billion a year ago.
on the company's overall performance in the first quarter,
Bharti Airtel CMD Sunil Bharti Mittal said: "Bharti Airtel's
efforts in the area of cost efficiencies have helped arrest
the margin decline. The new customer facing organisation in
India will see more agile and responsive teams in action.
This will also give a fillip to growth in value added services,
broadband, digital TV and Airtel money. Overall, 2011-12 promises
to be an exciting year of transformation."
the quarter, Airtel Digital TV strengthened its interactive
services portfolio with the launch of new services- iDarshan,
iGoodlife and iKisaan. It also launched its 3D-ready HD Recorder.
