In line with its commitment of putting India first, Indus Towers’ field staff engineers and technicians made considerable efforts to restore and maintain all mobile tower sites across the mountains of Uttarakhand even when accessibility was a challenge. Despite challenges including restricted road communication due to landslides, water logging and logistical constraints in transporting diesel, Indus Towers’ ground teams worked tirelessly to ensure that all the sites in the state were well attended and maintained.
In certain cases, such as in Thal and Munsyari regions of Pithoragarh district and areas in Almora district, field staff engineers had to access the sites on foot, sometimes walking upto 10 kilometres to reach each site. UP West Circle CEO Siva Prakash Rao said, “The need to stay connected during a natural calamity is critical.
We understand the gravity of the situation and every year during monsoon our teams work hard to overcome challenges of water logging and landslides which restrict movement to maintain and restore impacted mobile tower sites before any critical outage. In the last couple of weeks, our dedicated teams have attended to 87 rain affected sites that were impacted across the state due to heavy rainfall.”
