  • ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Presenting a Summer Training project of this type is an arduous task, demanding a lot of time. I cannot in full measure reciprocate the kindness shown and contribution made by various persons in this endeavor. I will remember all of them with gratitude. My sincere thanks towards Mr. ANAND PRIYA DE ASM -Airtel, Rohtak), for giving me a chance to take this project and for her valuable guidance, which helped me on all those points, which I needed to include in, with full intensity , for his significant support extended for the successful completion of the project I am extremely gratified to Mr. RAHUL SINGH (T.L., Airtel), who was extremely helpful in offering his professional expertise and bestowing me practical knowledge in all spheres related to the whole organization working. I am always beholden to my God, for always being with me and showing me the right ways, my family members, for always doing favors to me and my friends and colleagues consistently helped with encouragement and criticism throughout the project work, for always lifting my sights to higher vision, raising my personality beyond normal limitation and for realizing me my strengths and potential, specially my brother, as I did not always welcome her exhortation, “try again; you can do better.” But this project owes a great deal to it – and so do I.
  • PREFACE It’s a thing of massive gratification for me to present this Summer Training Project Report on the topic “ Customer Acquisition & retention of airtel customer ” completed in an unrivaled organization ‘AIRTEL’. Mobile telephony adoption is on the rise and recent technological innovations have dramatically enhanced the capabilities of the wireless telephone. Leveraging the power of these new capabilities, various business sectors are working together to offer a wide array of services. Each sector is looking for the next “killer application," yet we are still learning about people's information and communication needs while "on the go." The goal of this two-months training is to bring together an international group of 5-8 practitioners and researchers from various sectors of the mobile communications industry. We will discuss the following topic areas and, prior to the workshop; invite participants to identify specific issues that they feel are particularly relevant and timely. I myself have for a long time deeply interested in studying consumer trends & behavior towards mobile industry. I know that even in the areas in which I have a little knowledge, I do not know enough. There are new tasks in these areas for which I am not yet equipped with tested, proven approaches and tools. New areas of challenge and new technology problems has arisen, where I have done 7 little work so far and where I have so far only ignorance rather than even a modicum of knowledge. This project attempts to identify and define areas related to consumer behavior regarding new connection services. It also attempts to develop at least first approach to these areas, to think through policies, principles, and practices to accomplish the new tasks and to satisfy the customer needs. By this practical training I am able to equip the manager with the
  • Understanding, the thinking, the knowledge, and the skills for todays and also for tomorrow’s market exigency. Initially I was just having the bookish knowledge about all Marketing policies, practices and functions, but after joining this organization, I got most of the practical knowledge. I have come to know, what actually happens in the organizations. Though it is not possible to have the information of all the spheres in market, in such a very short period, but I tried to get more and more about all functions and practices applied in practical working, I have particularly stresses on. This is the boom time for mobile industry. Youths are having keen flair for mobile communication. Now the mobile communications are the fastest growing industry. We can reach to anyone, anywhere across world through mobile connectivity. Just look in the areas they’re in; health, education, banking, insurance, travel, couriers, manufacturing, entertainment, government, computer helpdesks- the list goes on market is going on global, & so the need of communication is emerging day by day… I saw that though the times are hard but if same thing innovative is done, people will get more craze for that. We are fast becoming a part of a new era of management. No longer does a manager sit in an ivory tower and issue directives from a distance. This study, complex as it is, has acquired new dimensions with the dynamic social and technological changes of the past two decades. Changing technologies, cultural diversity, more educated work force and awareness of rights and privileges have prompted a new look at the entire organizational structures and systems. This project report has been painstakingly and thoroughly prepared to cover extensively various facets – both micro as well as macro –
  • of the field of telecommunication marketing. Its coverage is broad and up to date and it is balanced in terms of concept and application. Since customers are the most important asset of any organization, there is increased emphasis on the need for understanding people in a manner to satisfy them through quality of services. The language of the presentation is highly communicative so that it becomes interesting and comprehensible. This project is intended for a wide audience. It will be useful to not only the students of management, marketing management and consumer behavior, but also to the people in any other field and management practitioners who want to understand and enrich their understanding of consumer trends & effectively manage their sales.

Bibliography INTRODUCTION OF THE PROJECT INTRODUCTION TELECOM HISTORY SINCE 1842 TILL NOW With the dramatic changes in interpersonal communication over the past decade, Internet messaging has emerged as the primary medium for transferring information quickly, inexpensively, and reliably. However, the growing popularity of wireless telephones has added another dimension to the communications equation—mobility. As more Indians rely on cellular communication, this market is expected to see explosive growth over the forecast
  • period. Let’s have a review of telecommunication History:- TELECOM HISTORY 1842: Wireless by conduction 1843: Early electromagnetic research, wireless by induction 1865: Induction and Dr. Loomis Early radio discoveries 1879: D.E. Hughes and the first radio-telephone reception 1880: The photo phone and the first voice radio-telephone call 1880 to 1900: Radio development begins in earnest 1910: The first car-telephone 1924: The first car-mounted radio-telephone 1937: Early conventional radio-telephone development
  • The Modern era begins 1946: The first commercial American radio-telephone service 1947: Cellular systems first discussed 1948: The first automatic radio telephone service 1969: The first cellular radio system 1973: The Father of the cell phone 1978: First generation analog cellular systems begin 1980: Growth of Japanese cellular development 1981: NMT -- the first multinational cellular system 1982: The rise of GSM 1990: North America goes digital: IS-54 Prehistory (Birth to Bell Labs, 1924) While puzzling over the mysteries of radio, many inventors worked concurrently on power generation, telegraphs, lighting, and later, telephone. The thorough understanding of electricity required to produce a reliable, practical radio system took a long time and happened in different phases. In 1820, Danish physicist Christian Ousted discovered electromagnetism, the science that could help generate electrical power and, if fully understood and applied, usher in the era of telecommunication.
  • Michael Faraday - 1791 to 1867 In 1821 Michael Faraday reversed Oberstar’s experiment and in so doing discovered induction. This helped him build the world's first electricity generator. He worked on Different electrical problems in the next ten years, eventually publishing his results on induction in 1831. Joseph Henry - 1797 to 1878 In 1830 the great American scientist Professor Joseph Henry transmitted the first practical electrical signal; showing that electromagnetism could do more than just create current or pick up heavy weights -- it could communicate. In a stunning demonstration in his Albany Academy classroom, Henry created the forerunner of the telegraph. While Henry did not pursue electrical signaling, he did help someone who did. And that man was Samuel Finley Breese Morse. Samuel Morse - 1791 to 1872 In 1837 Samuel Morse invented the first practical telegraph, applied for its patent in 1838 and was finally granted it in 1848. Joseph Henry helped Morse build a telegraph relay Or repeater that allowed long distance operation. The telegraph brought the country closer and eventually the world. Morse also experimented with wireless, not by passing signals though the atmosphere but through the earth and water. Without a cable.
  • Wireless by conduction On October 18, 1842, Morse laid wires between Governor's Island and Castle Garden, New York, a distance of about a mile. Part of that circuit was under water. But before he could complete this demonstration a passing ship pulled up his cable, ending it seemed, his experiment. Undaunted, Morse proceeded without the cable, passing his telegraph signals through the water itself. This is wireless by conduction. Over the next thirty years most inventors and developers concentrated on wire line telegraphy, that is, conventional telegraphy carried over wires suspended on poles. Few tinkered exclusively with wireless since a basic radio theory had not yet been worked out. Telegraphy, however, did produce a good understanding of wireless by induction since wires ran parallel to each other and often induced rogue currents into other lines. Early electromagnetic research In 1843 Faraday began intensive research into whether space could conduct electricity. In 1864 Maxwell released his paper "Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field" which concluded that light, electricity and magnetism were all related and that all electromagnetic phenomena travelled in waves.
  • Induction and Dr. Loomis In 1865, a dentist Dr. Mahlon Loomis of Virginia may have been the first person to communicate through wireless via the atmosphere. Between 1866 and 1873 he transmitted telegraphic messages at a distance of 18 miles. At one location he even flew a metal-framed kite on a metal wire, perhaps taking inspiration from Benjamin Franklin. At another location a similar kite picked up these signals and noted them with a galvanometer. Early radio discoveries Maxwell's 1864 conclusions were distributed around the world and created a sensation. But it was not until 1888 that Professor Heinrich Hertz of Bonn, Germany, could produce and detect radio waves consistently and reliably. On November 22, 1875, while working on acoustical telegraphy, a science close to telephony, Thomas Alva Edison noticed unusual looking electro-magnetic sparks. D.E. Hughes and the first radio-telephone reception From 1879 to 1886, London-born David Hughes discovered radio waves but was told incorrectly that he had discovered no such thing. Discouraged, he pursued radio no further. Hughes noticed a clicking noise in his home built telephone each time he worked using his induction balance, a device now often used as a metal detector. He transmitted signals from one room to another in his house in London. But since the greatest range there was about 60 feet, Hughes took to the streets with his telephone, intently listening for the clicking produced by his clockwork transmitter, gradually diminishing until it no longer could be heard. Alexander Graham Bell was the man who invented the telephone and made the first call on a wired telephone to Thomas Watson. Bell was also first with radio.
  • 1888 onwards: Radio development begins in earnest In 1888 the German, Heinrich Hertz, conclusively proved Maxwell's prediction that electricity could travel in waves through the atmosphere. Unlike Hughes, the extensive and systematic experiments into radio waves that Hertz conducted were recognized and validated by inventors around the world. Jagadish Chandra Bose demonstrated electromagnetic waves in 1895 "by using them to ring a bell remotely and to explode some gunpowder". Marconi established the first successful radio system. In 1901, his radio-telegraph system sent signals across the Atlantic Ocean. Ships were the first wireless mobile platforms. In 1901 Marconi placed a radio aboard a Thorny croft steam-powered truck, thus producing the first land-based wireless mobile transmitting data, not voice. In December 24, 1906, Reginald Fessenden accomplished the first radio band wave communication of human speech over a distance of 11 miles, from Brant Rock, Massachusetts, to ships in the Atlantic Ocean. Radio was no longer limited to telegraph codes, no longer just a wireless telegraph, but a means of verbal communication. The first car-telephone From 1910 onwards, Lars Magnus Ericsson, the man who founded Ericsson in 1876, and his wife Hilda, regularly worked the first car telephone. Access was not by radio, instead there were two long sticks, like fishing rods, handled by Hilda. She would hook them Over a pair of telephone wires, seeking a pair that was free. When they were found, Lars Magnus would crank the dynamo handle of the telephone, which produced a signal to an operator in the nearest exchange.
  • Around the same time, the triode tube was developed, allowing far greater signal strength to be developed both for wire line and wireless telephony. No longer passive like a crystal set, a triode was powered by an external source, which provided much better reception and volume. Later, with Armstrong's regenerative circuit, tubes were developed that could either transmit or receive signals, were stable and powerful enough to carry the human voice and sensitive enough to detect those signals in the radio spectrum. In 1919, three firms came together to develop a wireless company that one day would have a reach across the globe. Heavy equipment maker ASEA, boiler and gas equipment maker AGA and telephone manufacturer LM Ericsson, formed SRA Radio, the forerunner of Ericsson's radio division. The first car-mounted radio-telephone Bell Laboratories claims to have invented the first version of a mobile in 1924. It was a two-way, voice-based radio-telephone and the adjoining photograph from their site certainly seems to confirm it.
  • History of cellular mobile telephony: 1982 to 2001 1980 - First cellular phones began to appear 1982 - Nordic Mobile Telephony (NMT) standard 1983 - American Mobile Phone System (AMPS) standard 1986 - Nordic Mobile Telephony (NMT) 900 MHz 1991 - Commercial launch of the GSM service 1993 - Coverage of main roads GSM services start outside Europe 1994 - Japanese Digital Cellular (JDC) 1996 - USA Personal Communications Systems (PCS) 1982 - The beginning During the early 1980s, analog cellular telephone systems experienced rapid growth in Europe, particularly in Scandinavia and the United Kingdom, but also in France and Germany. Each country developed its own system, which was incompatible with those of others, in equipment and operation. This was an undesirable situation, because not only was the mobile equipment limited to operation within national boundaries, but also limited to the market for each type of equipment. This scenario in a unified Europe was undesirable. The Europeans realized this early on, and in 1982, the Conference of European Posts and Telegraphs (CEPT) form a study group called the Group Special Mobile (GSM) to study and develop a pan-European public land mobile system. The proposed system had to meet certain criteria, which included: 1. Good subjective speech quality. 2. Low terminal and service cost. 3. Support for international roaming. 4. Ability to support handheld terminals. 5. Support for a range of new services and facilities.
  • 6. Spectral efficiency 7. ISDN compatibility. Nordic Telecom and Netherlands PTT proposed to the CEPT the development of a new digital cellular standard that would cope with the ever-burgeoning demands on European mobile networks. The European Commission (EC) issued a directive which required member states to reserve frequencies in the 900 MHz band for GSM to allow for roaming. 1986 Main GSM radio transmission techniques were chosen. 1987 September - 13 operators and administrators from 12 areas in the CEPT GSM advisory group signed the charter GSM (Groupe Spéciale Mobile) MoU "Club" agreement, with a launch date of 1 July 1991. The original French name Groupe Spéciale Mobile was changed to Global System for Mobile communications; but the original GSM acronym remains. GSM SPECIFICATIONS WERE DRAFTED. 1989 – 1998 In 1989, GSM responsibility was transferred to the European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI), and phase I of the GSM specifications was published in 1990. Commercial services started in mid 1991, and by 1993 there were 36 GSM networks in 22 countries, with 25 additional countries like South Africa, Australia and many Middle and Far East countries opting for GSM. By the beginning of 1994, there were 1.3 million subscribers worldwide. The developers of GSM chose an unproven (at that time) digital system, as opposed to the then standard analog cellular systems like AMPS in the United States and TACS in the United Kingdom. They had faith in the advancements in compression algorithms and digital signal processors to allow the fulfillment of the original criteria and the continual improvement of the system in terms of quality and cost. The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) defined GSM as the internationally accepted digital cellular telephony standa
  • 1990 Phase 1 GSM 900 specifications were frozen DCS adaptation started. Validation systems implemented. First GSM World congress at Rome had 650 participants. 1991 First GSM specification was demonstrated. DCS specifications were frozen. GSM World Congress at Nice had 690 participants. 1992 January - The first GSM network operator was Oy Radiolinja Ab in Finland. December 1992 - 13 networks were on air in 7 areas. GSM World Congress at Berlin had 630 participants. 1993 GSM was demonstrated for the first time in Africa at Telkom '93 in Cape Town. Roaming agreements between several operators were established. By December 1993, 32 networks were on air in 18 areas. GSM World Congress at Lisbon progressed with 760 participants. Telkom '93 was held in Cape Town. First GSM systems were shown. 1994 First GSM networks in Africa were launched in South Africa. Phase 2 data /fax bearer services were launched. Vodacom became the first GSM network in the world to implement data/fax. GSM World Congress at Athens drew 780 participants. December 1994 -- 69 networks were on air in 43 areas.
  • 1995 GSM MOU was formally registered as an association registered in Switzerland with 156 members from 86 areas. GSM World Congress at Madrid attracted 1400 participants. December 1995 - 117 networks were on air in 69 areas. Fax, Data and SMS roaming started. GSM phase 2 standardisation was completed, including adaptation for PCS 1900. First PCS 1900 network was shown live 'on air' in the USA. Telecom '95, Geneva -- Nokia shows 33.6 kbps multimedia data via GSM. Namibia goes on-line. Ericsson 337 wins GSM ‘phone of the year’. US FCC auctioned off PCS licenses. 1996 December 1996 - 120 networks were on air in 84 areas. GSM World Congress was held in Cannes. GSM MOU Plenary was held in Atlanta GA, USA. 8K SIM was launched. Pre-paid GSM SIM cards were launched. Bundled billing was introduced in South Africa. Libya goes on-line. Option International launches the world's first GSM/Fixed-line modem. 2001 Feb -- GSM Conference held in Cannes. By May 2001 there were 500m GSM 900/1800/1900 users worldwide. 16 billion SMS messages were sent in April 2001. By April, 500 million people are GSM users.

  • TRENDS IN MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS The growth and penetration of sophisticated digital communication systems, infrastructures, and services, has been increasing constantly over the last decade. Examples of these services are the Internet, electronic mail, multimedia, pagers, PDA's, and mobile telephony. From marginal penetration 15 years ago, these systems and services are becoming a commodity in both professional and consumer markets worldwide. The developments in these fields are still going strong. In particular, rapid advances - both in technology and services - can currently be observed in wireless and mobile systems that support the communication of different media, such as data, speech, audio, video and control. Current wireless network and mobile phone services roll-out is centered around four available technologies, namely WAP, UMTS, Bluetooth, and mobile positioning systems. The wireless application protocol (WAP), initially carried by second generation GSM and in the future by third generation UMTS wireless networks, will turn the mobile phone into a networked smart-phone capable of low to medium data rate Internet functionalities. Bluetooth will allow for short-range data communication between consumer appliances in a domestic environment. Positioning systems will become integral part of mobile phones such that services can be made dependent on the location of the user in the network. When projecting the progress in mobile networks and services into the future, three developments are of importance. In the first place, we can observe that more and more Mobile phone-like devices start to include accessories such as a small keyboard, a display, and a speech interface. Such communication and information-oriented systems are emerging as hybrids between the mobile phone and the wireless laptop personal computer. With higher bit rates supporting more advanced services, the integration of the personal computer and personal communication devices will be pushed even further.
  • In the second place, we observe that computing resources are becoming ubiquitously - that is everywhere and at all time - available. We will soon live in an environment that supports us by providing ubiquitous Computing for a wide variety of tasks and services. Daily life consumables, durable products and services already contain an ever-increasing number of sensors, actuators, processing units, and (embedded) software. The personal computer has entered daily life as a necessary commodity, and the development of sophisticated communication systems in today's society relies heavily on the availability of computation resources. Finally, we observe that communication and computing is becoming increasingly personal. The device (and therefore the user) is always on-line, the user is identifiable, the device can be personalized, and the system knows about the user’s position. “CELLULAR MOBILE PRICING STRUCTURE AND TRENDS” Successful growth and diffusion of mobile communication services is focusing greater attention on how mobile relates to fixed networks. Accordingly, it is necessary for regulatory authorities to review current frameworks in those instances where regulation might impede the offering of certain pricing structures, such as calling party pays. This issue is critical in putting fixed and mobile networks on an equal footing, so the potential for competition between networks can be exploited. Testing the demand for new pricing structures can be left to the market. Successful growth and diffusion of mobile communication services is focusing greater attention on how mobile communication relates to the Internet and electronic commerce. This report reviews and benchmarks the pricing of emerging services such as short message services. These services are the harbingers of ? Third generation ? Information services over mobile networks, and policy makers need to review current regulatory frameworks to enhance pricing innovation and competition in the provision of these services.
  • INDIVIDUAL CUSTOMIZATION An important trend in our society is agility or mass individualization. Consumer behavior is much more volatile, much less predictable and increasingly concerned with instant gratification. The expectation is that in due course this trend towards individualization will become a more important factor in the emerging markets too, particularly in the urban areas. As well as setting quality standards for products, this attitude also demands delivery at the right time and in the right place. At any moment, wherever the consumer may be, it has to be possible to satisfy his or her requirements; it is a question of the consumer as a "moving target" and how we can increase our chances of "scoring a hit". In modern thinking about categories of consumers, every consumer has something of this instant consumer in his or her make-up, alongside other possible descriptions, such as "rational", "social" and "responsible". What's more, this can vary according to the product category. One moment, moreover, this instant consumer will be demanding products on the basis of flavor, convenience or cheapness, and in the next breath will be voicing concerns about the environment, animal welfare or his or her own health. The likelihood is that in the long term health, the environment and animal welfare will be significant factors in the concept of quality, as safety already is. Changes in consumption patterns are an important factor in this development. While the retail trade is evolving from supermarket to household service provider in response to mass individualization, consumers are increasingly also obtaining their food through other outlets: company canteens, take-away meals, snack bars, old people's homes etc. "Young couples" in Europe are rapidly moving towards the situation that already exists in the United States, where 50% of the food consumed is prepared outside the home. This places different demands on products in terms of keeping qualities (shelf life), convenience and presentation. Consumer-driven technology development
  • These trends in the market and among consumers generate a demand for a more differentiated and more rapidly changing product range and also call for a different approach to technology development (dedicated production systems). In the future there will have to be product development that takes the dynamic of the market and the divergent wishes of the consumers as its starting point and uses the technologies of the future: biotechnology, separations technology, sensor technology and modern information technology (IT). To achieve this, product development will have to be tackled in a more structured way, and knowledge deriving from different areas of research will have to be integrated more effectively. The development of sensor technology in the agro sector, for instance, requires the integration of materials technology, biotechnology and process technology. New scientific developments also provide interfaces through which the sector may respond to wishes relating to health: both the information about genetic aspects and the new insights into bioactive components - substances that, in low concentrations, affect human health - offer interesting prospects of made-to-measure food! In the future, "made-to-measure food" will also mean "food produced in a way that the public finds socially acceptable". Such aspects as the environment, animal welfare etc. will play a major role. This will have to be specifically taken into account in the development of technology.
  • From chains to flexible networks As well as imposing requirements in terms of technology development, trends such as mass individualization call for a responsive answer to a sharply fluctuating market demand. This places considerable demands on the organization of agricultural production chains. The full vertical integration of links in a chain can mean a loss of flexibility. It would appear to be more efficient to opt for a continuation of the development of the chain concept; leading to responsive networks that combine the advantage of co-ordination with the flexibility of more loosely linked organizations. These independent organizations work closely together in the flow of goods along the chain in order to achieve the desired "customer value" at the lowest possible cost.

All the executives there listens the customer query very patiently and try there level best to solve it they send the customer to the floor manager. For eg.: For the new connection - The executives first listening to the customer patiently (his needs and preferences) than tell them postpaid and prepaid connection plans which most suited to the customer and helps them to choose the best for them, on the basis of their budget, for what purpose they are buying, how often he will use it etc. SERVICES PROVIDED BY Franchisee: New Postpaid and prepaid connection New SIM issue Duplicate SIM issue.

  • Mobile problems Queries regarding broadband, GPRS Queries regarding Land line phone OBSERVATION: The executives there were not fully aware of all plans. For eg. the executives was not aware that Rs. 2,000 prepaid Connection in which the customer's get two years incoming validity was still going on, he come to know about it when the customer said that he got a message from Airtel today about this plan. Customer's of new connection were very unhappy that there connection will be activated after a weak. Customer's were not satisfied with the Airtel services. Customer care number doesn't connects easily, it takes a lot of time to connect some-times a day to speak with executive. Many fraud cases were coming. Most of the people are opting for postpaid connection instead of prepaid connection postpaid and prepaid connection plans which most suited to the customer and helps them to choose the best for them, on the basis of their budget, for what purpose they are buying, how often he will use it etc. Most of the people were opting for Rs. 1399 advance rental plan of 2 years. Many customers were demanding for corporate connection but the executives said that individual connection of corporate is not possible; they should be atleast five connections. People were very happy with add-on scheme of postpaid and also opting for it.
  • The franchisee sells 7 to 9 postpaid and 3 to 5 prepaid connection daily. Many customer's were coming for making adjustment in their bill plan or amount. Many customer's were coming with the problem that the plan they are assigned was not opted by them. Radio-connectivity of their system was getting very slow again and again by which the customer's were getting irritated. The customer's who need prepaid connection were getting less preference in comparison to the customer's who need postpaid connection. The customers were very happy with Airtel scheme in which the customer can make the payment through bank automatically every month by filling ECR form.
  • SUGGESTIONS There should be more customer care numbers and executives so that the problems of the customers can be solved quickly. They should have more space for payment. The executives there should be given training time to time about new schemes and plans. No phone calls should be attended while entertaining the customer. Every executives should know his responsibility and work.
