According to a report, Tata Indicom lost almost 19,08,994 subscribers in 2016. This is mainly because of the smartphone take over and people going for GSM SIMs. All active customers of the CDMA service are now receiving a message to opt out of the service before 19 March. If they fail to do so it will result in permanent disconnection from the service.
