"India is the only country where this industry has flourished as the business model is focussed on sharing and the prospects are good," Bharti Enterprises Deputy Group CEO and MD Akhil Gupta told reporters here today.
Asked if the cancellation of telecom licences by the Supreme Court was putting pressure on the tower industry, Gupta said: "Our industry does not necessarily thrive on too many number of operators, it thrives on healthy operators.
" He added the reduction in number of operators has given a chance to the existing players who are left in the fray and have more healthy business to invest more money in the roll out.
"Therefore I think even from their point of view its a good time," Gupta said.
