The New Delhi Municipal Corporation has signed a Letter of Intent with Indus Towers, a joint venture of Airtel, Vodafone and Idea, for providing Wifi in New Delhi. It is stated that about 18,500 poles will have to be erected for the purpose.

Though MTNL is the telecom PSU operating in Delhi, the Letter of intent is given to private companies. In our opinion, the NDMC should entrust the work with MTNL.
