Regional Head-East and COO, Kolkata Circle, Rajiv Sinha said here today that the amount would include Rs.290 crore to be spent on setting up network in Assam and the North-East.

"By August 15 we shall launch our service in Assam and the North-East and in Jammu and Kashmir to complete our presence allover India," he said while launching Tata Indicom's new Fixed Wireless Phone (FWP) walky talky.

Mr.Sinha said the company would set up altogether 713 BTS, in addition to the existing 713 allover the country during the financial year.

In reply to a question, he said during this year, the company had targetted almost 50 per cent growth in the countrywide subscriber base to be increased to 32 million from the present 22 million adding the subscriber base in the east would also be almost doubled to 5.5 million from the present three million.

Priced at Rs.1,299 and designed to cater to the growing needs of the home phone users, the new walky talky, now available in post-paid, can be carried anywhere in the circle away from the base set.
