-Himachal Pradesh and Kolkata encountered a decline in its connection base from last month.

-Delhi added 713,546 connections in April.

Although the report states that 11.10 million GSM connections were added last month,this figure is minuscule in comparison with the  last month figures where nearly 14.49 million new connections were added.With TRAI getting more teeth can we expect some encouraging figures for the ongoing month?
