It is seems that government is favouring only one telecom operator Reliance Geo. Due to which all other operators are shuting down their operations & lacks of people lost their job.
Such kind of situation dangerous for telecom sector & society. Need changes in policy on top priority.

Local manufacture company can work with existing external(out side India) manufacture in collaboration with help of Government. Government can help to introduce local manufacture company with established external manufacture company.Government can offer like reduce Tax / R&D support for local manufacture company.
