"The scheme is genuine, bona fide and in the interest of the creditors and the shareholders", said the NCLT Ahmedabad bench. Vodafone is awaiting its approval from the NCLT -Mumbai bench. As stated, if DoT approves the merger, both the telcos can merge the operations. The deal is slated to India's largest mobile phone operator worth more than $23 billion with a 35 per cent of the total market share.
