In a stock filing dated 22nd May 2023, TCS / Tata Consultancy Services stated that its consortium has won an order worth over Rs. 15,000 crore from Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BSNL) to develop 4G network across India. Tejas Networks Ltd, a subsidiary of TCS, is also a part of the aforementioned consortium.
Tejas Networks will be responsible for supplying and servicing of Radio Access Networks (RAN) equipment for the deployment of 4G network. In an interview with Economic Times in November 2022, Mr. N Ganapathy Subramaniam, Chief Operating Officer of TCS said, “TCS has always been only in the software management side and never supplied equipment. Now, we have the equipment capability, which means that we can truly compete with global equipment vendors”.
