VSNL to be renamed Tata Telecommunications

1 Nov 2007

The Board of VSNL has approved a proposal to change the name of the company to Tata Communications Limited. The new name and identity will, it is hoped, help the company ‘to leverage the brand equity that has come to be associated with the Tata Group’. According to Mr Srinath, Managing Director and CEO of VSNL: ‘The change in the company’s name is a major step in our commitment to customers, partners and stakeholders. Tata Communications reiterates a focus on the global communications business where we are a major player; at the same time, it reflects our strong heritage and leadership position in India.’
