“Presently, the company is working expeditiously to complete the process and expects to close the same in a phased manner by March, 2018, subject to receipt of applicable approvals,” RCom said.

The loss making RCom closed mobile calling service on its network from December 1 in about half of the country, and the rest from December 29.
