The company had been facing issues of theft of telecom equipment at its sites and therefore took stringent measures to safeguard the equipment by deploying innovative GPRS tracking to foil the cases of theft.

Indus Towers has decided to deploy more such technologies at all its sites to reduce such cases. Speaking on the issue, Subbu Iyer, CEO, Karnataka Circle, Indus Towers said, "The advantage of using modern tracking equipment is that the articles in which they are placed continue to emit signals for many days, hence making it simpler to track after they have been stolen. We will continue to deploy innovative technology to help reduce cases of theft."

He added, "We are thankful to the police authorities for their continuous support and look forward to their assistance in future as well."

The increased safety measures have helped the company reduce theft attempts at its sites. In a recent case, stolen battery banks from their tower site in Jigani were being transported by the culprits to be sold to a scrap vendor. Since the batteries were equipped with GPRS enabled tracking, it helped track the exact location of the stolen battery banks and the attempt was foiled by the security agencies and police authorities.

The company further said that regions like Bangalore (Urban & Rural), Ramnagra, Bidar, Bijapur, and Mandya have reported major cases of telecom equipment theft and the company and Police authorities are working together to curb such instances with the help of technology.

 

Indus Towers Limited has been promoted under a joint venture amongst Bharti Infratel Limited (group company of Bharti Airtel limited, rendering telecom services in India under the brand name Airtel), Vodafone India Limited (rendering telecom services under the brand name Vodafone) and Aditya Birla Telecom Limited (group company of Idea Cellular Limited, rendering telecom services under the brand name Idea), which created history by collaborating to share telecom towers & infrastructure.

It has presence in 15 telecom circles of India and has achieved over 2,97,867 tenancies till date. With the current count of over 1,22,920 towers, Indus has the widest coverage in India and is also the largest telecom tower company in the country.
