Our mission
Our Circle

The Indian telecommunications market for mobile services is divided into


23 “Circles”. There are four “metropolitan” Circles, covering the cities of
Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai, and 19 Circles classified by the
Government as category “A”, category “B” or category “C”, which cover the rest
of India. These classifications are based principally on a Circle’s revenue
generating potential, with metropolitan and category A Circles having the highest
revenue potential.

Established Circles
We operate in the metropolitan Circle of Delhi, the category A Circles of
Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra, and the category B Circles of Haryana,
Kerala, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh (West).
Licenses for the Maharashtra and Gujarat Circles were awarded to us in
December 1995, with network rollout and commercial launch achieved in 1997.
Subsequently, in January 2000, we merged with Tata Cellular Limited, the mobile
operator in the Andhra Pradesh Circle, and integrated its operations into ours by
January 2001. In February 2001, we acquired RPG Cellcom Limited, the mobile
operator in the Madhya Pradesh Circle, with full integration of this Circle with
ours achieved by June 2001. We acquired the license for the Delhi Circle during
the fourth mobile license auction in October 2001, with network rollout and
commercial launch by November 2002. Escotel Mobile Communications Private
Limited (“Escotel”), which we acquired in January 2004, was awarded the original
licenses in the Circles of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh (West) and Kerala. We re-
branded these Circles and integrated them with ours by June 2004.

New Circles
In connection with the acquisition of Escotel, we also acquired Escorts
Telecommunications Limited (“Escorts”), which was awarded licenses for the
New Circles. Due to certain existing license conditions we were unable to
complete the transfer of shares of Escorts until June 2006. However, we ensured
that Escorts met the first phase of network requirements for these New Circles in
June 2005 in accordance with the relevant licenses (as amended following the
payment of a penalty by us on behalf of Escorts).
Following significant investment by us in the roll-out of the network in the
New Circles, amounting to approximately Rs. 4,678 million upto September 30,
2006, we were able to achieve full commercial launch of mobile services in the
New Circles between September and November 2006 in a manner which also met
the network roll-out requirements of the licenses which were to be completed by
June 2007.

Coverage

Idea Cellular Ltd has seen phenomenal growth since its inception. Idea Cellular's
footprint idea is to first achieve critical mass, then drill deep instead of spreading thin.

In keeping with this, the company has been providing excellent service to its
subscribers in various states. It controls a portfolio of India's most attractive and
contiguous telecom geographies, including the circles of Andhra Pradesh & Delhi
(inclusive of NCR), Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, Madhya
Pradesh & Chattisgarh, Maharashtra & Goa (excluding Mumbai), Rajasthan, Uttar
Pradesh (W), Uttar Pradesh (E). With a footprint dominating the map of India, Idea
Cellular accesses over 60% of India's total telephony potential. The company is now
poised to launch its services in new circles - namely Mumbai and Bihar.
Idea Cellular Ltd, however, does not believe only in increasing geographic
footprint - it also drills deep and successfully attempts to provide excellent network
coverage in all its circles of operations.

Brand Information

The brand Idea


It is almost impossible to disintegrate brand Idea from the corporate Idea.
Brand values are the company values and vise versa.
Brand Vision: It goes without saying that the brand vision of idea mirrors the
company’s vision. The brand mission statement is...... To be the most customer-
focused mobile service brand, continuously innovating to help liberate our
customers from the shackles of time & space.

IDEA - Brand Values


Innovate. Stimulate. Liberate....
It is these brand values, which have made us a formidable player in the telecom
industry. Innovations that stimulate the customer and liberate him from the
shackles of time and space are the core of our brand. This is what we strive for.
Nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.

Brand Initiatives
Our aim, through media buying and planning, is to create year round
impact. With the objective of strengthening our brand, we work with strategic
communication partners on campaigns like sponsorship of the Idea International
Indian Film Academy awards and the television programs “Idea Rocks India”,
“Idea Star Singer” and “Idea Andhra Idol”. We seek engagement with subscribers
on a variety of levels, from major celebrity fashion shows to small local events
timed to coincide with new product offerings.
Since August 2003, we have commissioned a Brand Track Index Study to
evaluate the health of our brand. The Brand Track Index Study is a monthly study
conducted by TNS, a marketing consultant engaged by us to evaluate our brand
using face-to-face interviews on a random sample of mobile users a well as those
intending to purchase mobiles within the next three months. According to the
study our brand is perceived as “reliable/trustworthy” and one that “offers cheaper
and good promotional offers”. We have improved our rating in the Brand Track
Index calculated by the study in the past year reflecting, we believe, the growing
strength of our brand.
The main communication medium for the Idea brand is television, where
we seek strategic Idea brand coverage in various formats. Billboards and
hoardings are used as a secondary medium, customized for specific regional
preferences to communicate effectively at the local level. We also use other mass
communication media such as the press and radio to communicate price plans and
other tactical and customer information.
All our key initiatives are subjected to a rigorous testing and launch process
to ensure accountability for all advertising spend and improve the chances of
success of a new product. This process is followed up with extensive briefing of
call center agents and sales personnel and real-time tracking of the impact of the
communication and feedback from subscribers.

it too.
Introducing THE IDEA Value Added Services, a vibrant bouquet of "little
conveniences" "small pleasures" "bits of happiness" "dollops of infotainment" and
all those "itsy bitsy" wants of yours that together make up THE BIG SMILING
PICTURE.
SMS based services to Voice based ones, the Idea range cuts across all
modes of communication to ensure the BEST VALUE for your money.
So be it downloading the latest ring tones or sharing the freshest of blonde
jokes, be it checking the status of your cousin's train arrival time or arranging a
pick up for your boss's delayed flight, Idea hands you the power to do it all.
You could also book a surprise movie ticket or deliver those dainty
dandelions for your date or access the latest cricket scores or some serious stock
information; or maybe even play downloadable games or chill out with some zany
chats with buddies on-line.
Idea's Value Added Services are as innovative and exciting as your desires.

Roaming
Roam Like Home - with IDEA
Now you have one more reason to select Idea network while roaming in India.
You can enjoy a ‘Roam Like Home’ experience even while roaming. IDEA is the
first telecom operator in India to offer this facility to it’s valued roamers.
We present a host of very convenient & friendly features -
· Dial directly from your phone book. You can call numbers saved in your
phonebook, without adding STD or ISD codes to the entries. This saves you the
bother of remembering the concerned codes or manually dialling every number.
Ex: If you are a customer from UAE and you have saved your home telephone
number in your phonebook as 506123456. Now when roaming with Idea, you can
call the same number directly, without prefixing +971 (ISD dialling code for
UAE) each time you want to call home!
· Auto call correction of all misdialled calls. When you dial a new number, this
service will complete your call even if a wrong or incomplete prefix has been
added to the number.
· Direct access to your Voicemail box. Now you can make extensive use of your
VMS feature, even while roaming. Dial your voicemail short code directly without
any authentication codes.
· Direct dialling to your home customer care number. Ex: If you have saved the
customer care number of your mobile operator as 12345 in your phone book, you
can call them at the same number even while you are roaming (which would not
have been possible otherwise)
