India's Tata Teleservices is to close down its mobile network in the Jammu and Kashmir North East and the Assam regions from the middle of January.
The company no longer holds radio spectrum to operate its services in these circles, and will start a shut-down of the services and put in place plans to migrate customers to other networks.
Around 120 staff are being laid off as a result of the cut-back which is in part due to the firm's decision not to participate in the cancelled CDMA spectrum auction following complaints about the high reserve price being set.
