As per TRAI’s latest data, the company has improved its active users base to 94.1% in the month, which means the company has been de-recognizing inactive users, that have resulted in this positive trend. 

Why are companies losing their users?

Analysts have mentioned that almost all service-providing companies have increased taxes by about 20% in November, and this led to many customers giving up, or pausing recharges of their second or third connections.
