SWOT ANALYSIS OF RELIANCE COMMUNICATION STRENGTH Big brand name The new technology launcher (CDMA) First in FWP’s Strong market Good network in INDIA OPPORTUNITIES Growing data card market Growing market of CDMA phones Establishment of new business in Pune WEAKNESS Services Customer care section Not very good tariff plans for STD users Battery life of hand sets THREATS Launch of TATA Indicom USB modem Big market share of Airtel and growing TTSL in Maharashtra .

Reliance communication provides me the good opportunities to make my skills stronger in marketing. While doing this project I have talked with many people and came to know about the market and I learnt that how the companies’ works and what they have to do for retaining there position in the market. . Reliance Communications has trained me to face the challenges whatever in the market.CONCLUSION Reliance communication is a very big brand name and I am very thankful to the Reliance people to help me in completing my project in Reliance communication. I am also very thankful to my project guide Mr. Rajiv Taneja for giving me his useful guidelines and important time.

Customer care services are very poor company should improve that part also.RECOMMENDATION After completing my work of analyzing and creating customers for postpaid mobiles. Sales Executives are not getting proper guidance and support from the seniors because of heavy workload on them so there is a need to manage workload so managing manpower is also a big task to do. Company should move towards the good customer relations so company should plan for the customer relationship management. Reliance Communication should make such strategies which suits the company’s name and brand. fixed wireless phones. Reliance Communication is already having a good brand image. and interruption in the network so the quality of after sales services should be improved. Company should come with some good and effective plans to make the customer satisfied. Reliance Communications is having good range of its products that is why they are challenging the competitors so make it large. Majority of respondents complain about the after sales services like billings. . Device installation and registration on site should be easier to work so that customers need not to give more papers at the time of purchasing a new connection. Data cards and USB modem of Reliance communication I want to recommend some important facts to the company about its products.
