"Bharti Airtel's rights issue at Rs 535 a share is attractively priced considering the current market price of around Rs 730,” VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said.
The recent telecom package declared by the government addresses most of the issues that the industry has been facing for some time now, he added.
India's telecom industry is now practically a duopoly with Ril Jio and Bharti Airtel dominating the industry, he further said.
“Bharti's 35 crore customers, growing steadily, and the launch of 5 G shortly bode well for the company in the years ahead, Vijayakumar said.
