ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the benefit of the sharing of Indus Towers among three companies in India. Bharti Enterprises deputy group chief executive officer (CEO) Akhil Gupta proposed the shared mobile tower to Vodafone chairman Arun Sarin in 2007 before they formed a joint venture (JV) and enlisted Idea Cellular. The aim of Indus is to offer passive infrastructure services to all operators in India without discrimination. Indus is considered as the largest independent tower company with its one lakh towers.
