Indian Railway, it is the largest transportation service of India. According to 2016 data, almost 1.54 million people are employees, work in Indian Railway. All the services provided to them by the government and at present time, where everything is related to social media and railway also take initiative to develop internet facilities to all customers of them.
From last 6 years Airtel had a contract with the railway for telecom services to their employees, almost 3.78 lakh mobile phones are used by railway employees under this contract. Bill of all that connections paid by the government. It means all expenses of those Closed User groups (CUG) avail by them, their call services and data expenses all paid by the government.
At earlier agreement government pay 100 Crores to Airtel for telecom services. This time again biding was start concept is same it is for the three-year agreement and telecom companies who are participating in this biding are- Jio, Airtel, Vodafone-Idea Joint Venture and state-run BSNL participated. The lowest biding put by the Jio to the government and they need to pay 30% less from earlier agreement expenses, it means now the government will save 30 Crores, this can be used in other places for the welfare of the state.
At last, Jio got this opportunity and they will earn more profit and became a tough competitor to other telecom companies. But the question is why they are providing services at such a lower cost and suffering loss. They are providing cheap services to the government, to the people but with this, they are creating a monopoly and can be possible made their black to white. After this Modi Government Reliance launched their Jio services in which people get free calls, messages and 4G data at very low cost, besides of demonetisation and financial problems of the country, till September Jio earn 618 Crores as profit. Which shows that they are not getting affected by anything, indirectly the government is supporting them for the achievement of public welfare. So, if one thing has a positive side so behind that there is a negative point also.
