Tata Teleservices (Tata Docomo) the Telecom unit is going to shut down as per sources, the officials are discussing ways to sell / surrender their spectrum holdings. In case you are using Tata Docomo services better port your number to other services.

The company was not doing well, for many years and now they want to close down and write off their losses. Most likely they will start the shutdown process soon probably in a month or two. Tata Teleservices has operation in 19 circles.

Tata Teleservices began its operations in 1996 (landline), in 2002 they launched CDMA, then in 2008 went with GSM (NTT Docomo joint venture). The NTT Docomo venture ended 3 years ago. The company is yet to officially announce the decision to shut down, once they do that the Tata Docomo customers will need to port their excising Tata Docomo number to other service provider.

Don’t think there are many Docomo users in India, but if you are using their services then better move out.

  1. Very sad to hear Tata Docomo leaving the telecom industry. I’ve been using the service for more than 5years. Now thinking of which provider to choose for next. And what will happen to their loyal employees? Will they move them to any of their ‘TATA group of companies’ or just advising them to search for job going forward? Or is it another form of ‘Recession’ like what TCS did last year to their 25K employees? I still doubt.

  2. I’m not getting the 3g data offers like before. All the plans are overpriced and the 2g plans are not displaying at all.

  3. I have a Tata Docomo Walky phone number for over 7 years now. It is a landline. Can I port the number to another provider?

  5. I raised a concern related to billing this morning & I didnt get any acknowledgement which use to get earlier in couple of mins so this makes me to recall your post & i thought to share everyone my experience etc….

  6. It is matter of shame that TATA’s are shutting shops. TATA’s were never money mongers. But looks the new management team and person like Mr.Chandrashekar has a short sighted vision and instead of making money running after him he is running after the money which will one day remove TATA from the global Map.
    As an ex-employee of TATA I feel sad Ratan Tata has such people who have such short vision. One business group on whom this country could depend for growth and development has now joined band wagon of typical Bania Business Group.

  7. I m using docomo since last 10 years n believe me they r d most customer oriented operators in India.
    Their plans were consistently cheapest among all prior to jio entry.
    Also 3G rates were great.
    Sad to hear d news.

  8. 200 sms per day at 1 rs. 1 gb data per month for 47 rs. 250 rs full TT and 1 gb 3g data for 250 rs. Really docomo was a saviour. Sad to hear the exit news. Hope its just be a fake news. Even today i am using docomo. Dont want to move to the thugs network.

    1. Bad customers service is the main reason behind Tata Teleservices . Why only Teleservices , pick any service from Tata u will get same pathetic support. I’m working at TCS and previously working at Tata BSS knows the flaw behind Tata Group. Tata isnt treated their employees well and customers too. Market is full of competition and tata is way behind that.

  9. Hi,

    I am using my mail account (****@vsnl.com) with Tatatelecommunications (Docomo). Originally it was from Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd., and when TATA took over VSNL, my mail account was moved to TATA too. With the closure of tele-services by TATA, will they be closing all email services too ?

    1. They are exiting only mobile business. They are holding on to broadband and enterprise business.

  10. Next to down its shutter will be anil amb rel smart .jio may change color after all finished and only bsnl and airtel will be fighting with jio in future

        1. Lol! Vodafone is international Network Company. It can buy Airtel Idea at same time and vodafone isnt worry about indian loss, its making money from american & European countries.

  17. Well my Experience is Good with Docomo.Their network is good (Ahmedabad city).And i never missed aitel or idea or vodafone.i was using jio & Docomo in my mobile.
    Note: i have called customer care to confirm this news a week ago ( i got it in my group) But they denied about shutdown.its obvious he will not tell about it untill its official news by Docomo.
    Hmmm A good company is taking its exit…. Docomo was good in offering in past….RIP Docomo.

  18. Tata indicom and then after Tata Docomo were not a BIG cheaters like AVoID.

    First to offer Truepaid , per second calling, 3G service.

    Even today its 3G speed is consistently high.

    We will miss you
    And will miss you a lot when jio will start monopolistic pricing.

    ?

  19. Docomo, Aircel , Uninor, Videocon will all suffer same FATE….

    They were good but things Change & they failed to evolve..

    Now The only good thing in india that is growing that we can say is in Technology & Internet.

    Good Times then but there is no looking back now

  20. Surely miss TataDocomo… Only they started full talktime and 3g data in a single pack. Not looted the people like Airtel and Vodafone.. Miss you

  21. The best network(CDMA) that i have been using since a long time.
    I wish they continue their services with better offers.
    Docomo is the one who changed the whole call system strategy by making 1p/1s.
    This has bought competition and brought down the prices as well (to some extent)

  22. They deserve it. i took tata dongle post paid and from the 1st day it self there is no service, even i unable to log into gmail or facebook. raised complaint and got the reply as ” currently there is some issue (probably cell tower reception issue ) wil clear in 2nd month”. i paid 2nd month end of third month i asked to close the connection. they asked me pay the 3rd month 1000rs bill, i refused. received some threatening calls and even fake court case file call, finally i forcebly paid 3 months amount. worst team they deserve this.

  24. Sad to hear the news.I had purchased their CDMA mobile handset when it was launched in Maharashtra & which gave calling from Tata to Tata free for life time which no other operator at that time gave.Their GSM service and 3G data speed was also good and cheap than Avoid group.Will definitely miss Tata teleservices.

  26. Sad to hear…
    i have been using Docomo for seven years after Airtel looted from me.. don’t forget Docomo was the one who introduced per second tariff.

  27. Mine dongle is of TATA DOCOMO 3G(UNLOCKED) bought back in 2010

    My first personal sim is from Tata Docomo bought back in 2009,which I am still using….but service provider changed to airtel now…

    I will never forget you DOCOMO, because I remember those days when you guys provided 500 MB for Rs 15 for 3 days and 1 GB for Rs 47 for a month….

    I bought my pc too in 2010….

    And, that days was Diwali…. And, it wasn’t shut down for a week once started because I left the system for download…

    Love you guys… You made me data hungry yaar….

    ????

      1. Hahahaha….

        It’s coverage issue of Jio right now…. Slowly they will overcome such shortcomings

  29. Gio has forced some good operators like docomo to shut down and market is moving towards monopoly of Jio…who will eventually become number one and then start looting it’s subscribers once they find that their is no one in market to challenge them. This will happen about 1 year from now as they slowly start increasing tarrifs and decrease validity of data packs.

    1. There will be still one operator in market to compete with jio i.e airtel and they both will loot customers then ??

  30. I had good experience with tata Docomo for its 3G services , but now will have to port .
    Can anybody tell me which provider would be better to port ?

  31. Surely miss TataDocomo… Only they started full talktime and 3g data in a single pack. Not looted the people like Airtel and Vodafone.. Miss you

    1. Damn.. Docomo was the operator that I had leaned on when AVoID used to loot people and bsnl sucked with their network congestion and poor customer support. I gonna miss you doco.. πŸ™ πŸ™

  32. Once upon a time docomo gave us unlimited 3G for one hour at 11 rupees, miss you docomo…

    1. Exactly the same happened to me.They deserve to shutdown for their unethical behavior.
