Bali says, “We will be inviting a spectrum of agencies beginning next week. A lot is happening in the digital space. The agency will have to create a transactional route on the web.” Bali refused to divulge the advertising spends, though he says this is a significant business.

At present, Spice Telecom operates in Punjab and Karnataka. It is promoted by Modi Wellvest and Dilip Modi. Telekom Malaysia has a 46.89 per cent stake in Spice Communications through TMI India Ltd, Mauritius, a wholly owned subsidiary of TM’s international investment holding company.
