Total towers– 1,83,462 and total colocations- 3,32,551
Reporting of towers & colocations has been changed from notice basis to actual exit basis w.e.f. 1st July 2021. During the consolidation phase of the telecom industry, Indus had adopted a conservative approach in December 2018 of reporting exits basis notices received vis-à-vis the earlier method of reporting basis actual exits. Now with the stabilization in the industry and reducing trend of exits, Indus has moved back to the earlier approach of reporting churn based on actual exits to represent actual colocations billed. This has resulted in one-time addition of 3,630 colocations in closing base for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.
