Bharti Airtel To Acquire Tata's Mobile Business But Not Its Debt

It will further strengthen our already solid portfolio and create substantial long term value for our shareholders given the significant synergies.

Earlier this year, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular agreed to merge their operations to create the country's largest telecom operator worth of more than Dollars 23 billion (roughly Rs 1,51,153 crore) with 35 per cent market share.

The merger will be on a debt-free, cash-free basis and all past liabilities and dues to be settled by Tata, the companies said in a statement.

Any such transaction will be subject to respective boards and other requisite approvals.
