Videocon’s 21 licences were among the 122 permits cancelled in the 2G case by the Supreme Court on February 2, 2012. It had acquired permits to operate across all circles in 2008.
The company in November 2012 auctions won spectrum in six circles for Rs 2,221.44 crore.
It has spectrum in seven circles, but offers services only in Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh/Chattisgarh and Gujarat circles.
The company, however, plans to launch services in the remaining circles by September-October this year.
“We may get the board approval by May, and around September-October we will try to launch services in circles of Bihar, UP East and UP West,” Bali said.
The company had over 42.33 lakh customers at the end of January this year.
Bali said since making a comeback into the telecom market early last year, the operator has strongly grown in terms of subscribers and revenue.
The company has a Unified Licence which allows it to provide the entire range of services including 2G, 3G and 4G.
