“We’ve determined to take away the maintain and pause. So the primary part going from 18-24 million fibre km could occur by finish of December itself after which 24-33 million fibre km could take somewhat longer, could also be March or April.

We are attempting that between March and June of subsequent 12 months that capability comes up absolutely, in a modular style,” he stated.

Whereas STL had initially anticipated an funding of about Rs 300 crore for the enlargement, it now believes that it could possibly full it a decrease price.

“We predict we can do it at barely decrease price proper now. We’ve re-engineered plenty of issues…could also be Rs 260 crore odd or so…All that work had been happening within the background, whereas we had paused this complete factor. A big a part of this can get deployed over the subsequent 6-7 months,” Agarwal stated.

Requested how the corporate would undertake enlargement throughout its totally different models, Agarwal stated the modalities are nonetheless being labored out.

“We should work it out. From what I perceive, Europe will occur a bit earlier as a result of we’re seeing nice deal of exercise and we’re quick monitoring Europe earlier, and India will observe. It’s only a matter of 2-3 months, so wherever we will do it sooner…,” he stated.
