Last Friday, Vi’s board decided to issue OCDs worth Rs 1,600 crore to American Tower Corporation. The funds raised will be used to clear dues of the tower company.

Indus Towers, which is reported to have payments of over Rs 7,000 crore from Vi, did not consider a similar proposal. Instead, the company’s board has agreed to the telco's proposal of substantially paying its billed amount till December. Vi has agreed to pay 100 per cent of the billed amount and outstanding amounts between January-July 2023.

Last month, Indus Towers issued a warning to Vi to pay up its dues by November or face disconnection of towers. In response to an analyst query, the tower company’s management however said this was a speculation and no towers were being disconnected.
