ITI to make handsets

December 14, 2003

Indian telephone Industries, the public sector giant that dominated telecom
manufacturing for four decades (prior to liberalization and opening up of
Indian telecom industy), is said to be in the final stages of manufacturing
handsets. With huge capacity, manpower and distributed through the length and
breadth of the country, ITI should utilize this opportunity to come out of its
cloud and embrace the wireless consumer space that it has so far avoided. With
wireless phone subscribers increasing at 2 Million per month over the couple
of months, and more than million a month for six months in a row it is the
right time. However, ITI should learn to be nimble, quick on feet and adapt to
the changing market needs of the demanding customer today, who looks for
convenience, features and style.
