CLUSTER ANALYSIS
A survey was conducted to find the reasons why Reliance Communication is not doing well and what are the factors that are contributing to the same.40 respondents were asked to express their degree of agreement in a scale of 0 to 7 based on the following variables:

VARIABLES
‡New offers in reliance are few compare to its competitor like Airtel & Vodafone ‡Has the share price effect the reliance business w.r.t Reliance communication ‡Customer care services of Airtel, Vodafone are better than Reliance.

‡Availability of Reliance product compared to competitor s product in market is less ‡Recharge coupon cannot easily available. ‡Shopkeepers are little aware of new plans and Promotion ‡Reliance Network coverage is lesser than the Competitors ‡-How 2Gscam affect the reliance network.

ANALYSIS 
Cluster analysis clustered the entire 8 variables to two clusters. Cluster1 = V1&V3&V7 are Predominant with 16 out of 40 responses i.e Competitors have an edge over Reliance wrt customer satisfaction and services. Competitors are taking away the customers. Cluster2= V4&V5&V6 New product availability and communication between the distribution network and retailer is the main cause.

Cont .
‡ It has a frequency of 24 out 0f 40 responses. ‡ Thus cluster2 is more predominant than Cluster1. ‡ Thus through our project we find that the main reason for the customer decline of RCOM is the poor distribution- retail network. ‡ The 2G scam and share prices have relatively less implication in this project.

CONCLUSION
‡Majority says product availability is less as compare Airtel & Vodafone. ‡Customer also feel that retailers are not aware of new schemes. ‡Few believe that Reliance has very few offers as compare to competitors. ‡Our first two hypothesis were proved correct and the last one is rejected via the research project.
