New Delhi, Oct 23 - Reliance Communication (RCOM) has received the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) approval for the merger of the wireless business with Sistema Shyam Teleservices Limited (SSTL), a company statement said here on October 23.

Sistema Shyam Teleservices Limited operates under MTS brand in India.

With this, RCOM will acquire approximately 2 million customers and additional annual revenues of around Rs 700 crore.

In addition, RCOM will acquire 30 MHz of the most valuable and superior 800/850 MHz band spectrum, ideally suited for 4G LTE services, to complement its own unique nationwide footprint.

This will result in extension of the validity of RCOM's spectrum portfolio in the 800/850 MHz band in eight important Circles (Delhi, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Kolkata, UP-West and West Bengal) by a period of 12 years -- from 2021 to 2033, the statement said.

"As a result of the demerger, SSTL will receive a 10% equity stake in the fully diluted equity share capital of RCOM. In addition, RCOM will assume the liability to pay the DoT instalments for SSTL's spectrum, amounting to Rs 390 crore per annum for the next eight years," the statement added.

The closure of the transaction is expected by the first week of November 2017.
