Vodafone Idea (Vi) is planning to raise around Rs 250 billion through the debt and equity routes.

According to Ravinder Takkar, managing director and chief executive officer (MD and CEO), Vi, telco is expecting to conclude the fund-raise in two to three months.

Meanwhile, hinting that the telco could be the first among the three largest private telecom players in India to hike the prices of voice and data services, Takkar said that going forward, Vi will not shy away from increasing the currently unsustainable mobile tariffs.
