He advised the companies to set up more towers to improve their quality of service and to provide better network to customers.

"The companies need to lay the cables deep underground so that they are not damaged easily and the network remains uninterrupted," Dhotre said.

He added that the government would try to address the problems faced by the telecom companies.
