The no. 2 Indian telco said forex losses also contributed to the 85% fall in Q2 net to 2.5 billion rupees ($54m), compared with 16.4 billion rupees in the same period last year.

Revenue declined 17% to 51.1 billion rupees, with ebitda down 33% and the ebitda margin off eight percentage points to 31.9%.
