New Delhi: India’s third-largest telecom operator Vodafone Idea on Thursday, August 8 reported a sharp rise in its losses to Rs 25,460 crore for the April-June quarter of 2020-21 due to high provisioning for statutory dues.

The losses of Vodafone Idea stood at about Rs 4,874 crore in the year-ago period.

The revenue from operations came in at Rs 10,659.3 crore for the first quarter of FY2021, against Rs 11,269.9 crore in the same period of the previous year, according to a regulatory filing.

The company said that it has recognized an additional charge of Rs 19,440.5 crore in June quarter towards adjusted gross revenue (AGR) liabilities.

“During this quarter, on prudence, we have recognized a charge of Rs 194.4 billion as an exceptional item towards the total estimated AGR liability, in addition to estimated recognized liability of Rs 460.0 billion as on March 31, 2020,” a company statement said.

The company said that the first-quarter numbers were impacted by the nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus.
