CHAPTER-6 CONCLUSION 64 .

Airtel not only generate the income from Pre-Paid. So it is the responsibility of Airtel to Maximize its Profit. 65 . Airtel has assigned From the above study I have concluded that in the month of April2011 Airtel suffered interest loss of amount = 1. Because it is not easy to estimate that how many people will get there phone recharged and how many post paid customers will be paying the bill on the next day and on what via? There are various modes of bill payment . different banks for different modes of the payment collection. Lapu and Roaming But it also earn a the profit by investing this money for short term. which is very convenient for the customers but it has become complicated for Airtel to forecast.86031. So Airtel has to forecast the collection so that it can invest in such a manner that it will have to bear minimum interest loss.86 Rs.Bharti Airtel is a the most revenue generating source of Bharti. Post-Paid .

It is clear from the above study that the most deviation accrue in CITI Bank which collects the credit card payments.3 business days HDFC-2 business days DB .This is the interest loss only for the month of April 2011.and only from the five banks but Airtel president office handles nearly tow hundred banks and suffers the interest loss nearly on Eight hundred million (800.  The big deviation accrue due to payment through Credit card .due to which a big Difference accrue as it is not decided that in how many days the cheque will clear.2 business days 66 .  One of the way for payment for Post-Paid is through cheque . The cash clearing days for different Banks are as follow:ICICI. Because Different Banks have different payment days .000.000) yearly. few observations are and resultants are as follow:-  There is not a proper communication between prepaid forecast Executive and Sales Manager of Airtel.  There should be some follow –up or trend to fore cast.

There is a midway agency i.5 business days  There is not proper audit of ARC’s.UTI .e.  In case of IUC and Roaming it is not certain that on what date the other telecom industries will do the payment. MACK (whose work is to flow the information from one telecom industry to another about the roaming collection) do not flow the information to the Airtel.4 to 7 business days SBI . 67 .2 to 3 business days PNB . the audit takes place once in a month. due to this also Airtel has to bear a big deviation.

CHAPTER-7 RECOMMENDATIONS :- 68 .

Tuesday:. Wednesday:. sources.55Mn.45Mn. 69 .  There should be a proper follow up or the other telecom industries should inform in advance that on what date it is going for payment for IUC and Roaming.62Mn. as per the law Or on the requirement of the company. Saturday:.11Mn. Mack should flow the information in the advance.  As different customers have different bank’s credit card .  The cheque should be categorized in to 3 category:(i) High value (Which clears in 2 days) (ii) Local cheque (which clear on next day) (iii)Outstation (which clear in 3to 7 days) If the cheques will be categorized then it would be easy to forecast that how much cash would be collected on next day. hence There should be the fix cash clearing time through the all credit cards. Sales Manager should send the right collections from all  For pre-paid forecast the forecast should follow the follow-up as below:Monday:. So that it will be easy for Airtel to minimize the deviation. The Pre-paid executive followed the above trend and interest loss have become 1/10 of previous trend.  There should be audit of the ARC’s on weekly basis. Thursday:44Mn. Friday:.63Mn.After the research I have reached to following recommendations: There should be a proper information flow between prepaid forecast Executive and Sales manager of Airtel.
