Technically yes but practically at least in this country telecom company denotes those having mobile/voice data services. Railtel will not compete against jio or airtel or vodafone in mobile connections but broadband connections & there are many areas where its reach is more than its competitors. You probably haven’t heard about its performance in Kerala where in many areas it is the leading broadband service provider(there it resells its service to local cable broadband operators).

Grey market premium is currently Rs. 45/- a must apply , only hitch is it is a sarkari company, PSUs do not enjoy a higher valuation as govt keeps meddling in their affairs, with OFS, mergers, stake sales etc etc, all said and done, it is good issue for listing gains , more so if you are a long term investor, will be heavily subscribed for sure

Totally Avoiding.
Requested railtel to for a broadband connection for 3 months. their employees sucks no one wants to take new customers because they will get the salary anyway.
Called Airtel for broadband, the seller used his 700mtr fiber wire on his cost so he can give connection to me(before covid airtel used to cost 1300 for 100mbps and railtel @ 670rs). This is a difference b/w govt and private, govt employees don’t care bcoz the govt won’t cut the salary even after complaints. Max to max transfer to another location.
So its a no no for me. confused

We had 2 railtel connection for about 6 months then decided to terminate. They were heavily dependent on cable tv providers and their customer service is bullshit. They have like 2-3 person from railtel to cover the entire city. I never had a connection as bad this one even though we were in the middle of the city. I’m talking about the situation 1and half years ago and have no idea what are they upto.

They are giving Rs 1 dividend.. Also share price reaching near ipo price.. No loss..
Similar will be in case of railtel.Even if share price decreases dividends will compensate in Long run.
