Bharti slips 2% as UBS removes it from key call list

The brokerage expects voice revenue per minute (RPM) to decline by 1 percent quarter-on-quarter Q4FY15, due to a cut in interconnect charges (IUC) from March 1. However, the cut should also aid an improvement in EBITDA margins, as the interconnect cost will also come down, it adds.
