We are committed to India: Vodafone Group CEO

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Vodafone Group CEO Vittorio Colao on Thursday reaffirmed the company's commitment to and requested for a predictable policy regime.

Colao, who met Union Communications Minister Manoj Sinha here, said: "I thanked him and the government for introducing several progressive policies and practices over the last couple of years, including the first mega spectrum auction which will enable us to quickly roll out 4G services and offer the Vodafone SuperNet experience in more circles."

"During the meeting, we reaffirmed our commitment to and to supporting the Government's thrust on financial inclusion by expanding our M-pesa service," he said.

"Since an affordable telecom service is essential for digital inclusion of rural India, we requested a predictable policy regime with a level-playing field and a fair application of Goods and Services Tax and other levies," Colao added.
