Likewise, market analysts believe the telecom operator is exploring all options to pay adjusted gross income (AGR) and spectrum fees, which are close to Rs. 13,000 crore, which must pay in the top six. month of the following year. Additionally, analysts said the fundraising would improve Airtel’s balance sheet.

Financial problems in the industry

“India’s telecommunications sector remains one of the most heavily taxed sectors.

Airtel has already raised $ 12 billion in the past two years and plans to raise money again to pay all dues.
