Findings 24th- Andheri


No of Retailers Visited = 6
5 of them catered to low pocket customers.
1 of them was an Idea Exclusive Store.
99% of the customers were 2G base
Common recharge were of Rs. 199 & Rs. 17/Rs. 29 in the order
1 Retailer said that some customers recharge with Rs. 298 in hope of getting more data (offer says
Get 1.25 to 5 GB data)
Rs. 17 & Rs. 29 recharges were done by common labours, they tend to carry exact amount of change
to recharge. Their recharge frequency is irregular since many retailers said these customers buy as
per need. (These use Idea as their primary SIM card.)

Findings 24th- Andheri


Rest of the customers were Voice based and visited the retailers mostly to know the current offers.
Customer comments:
face signal problem at residence and uses Idea as his 3 rd SIM, that too only if necessary,
he recently changed from post-paid to prepaid.
Also retailers are reluctant to increase awareness about 3G offers. They said that
o A custom setting is required
o many problems faced
o poor speed/signal strength
o leading to customers complaining to retailers and hence retailers dont promote
3G offers.
One retailer mentioned he had high sales of Reliance Voice packs than any other.
