Aircel, the sixth-ranked mobile carrier in the country by subscribers, has delayed payment of interest on its debt obligations on account of its "weak liquidity position," CARE said in a November 16 note.
Aircel, 74 per cent owned by Malaysia's Maxis Communications Bhd, had plans to combine operations with rival carrier Reliance Communications' (RCom) wireless unit. That deal fell apart last month.
RCom has won a reprieve from its creditor banks on its debt repayment obligations until December 2018 under a restructuring plan, having delayed servicing the loans.
Aircel was not immediately reachable for a comment.
