Tata’s bungled up on Tech Matters

 Tata-Sky 2000 TV Channels – Poor Access – 24% Subscribers

Tata’s mostly BUNGLED up on Tech Matters all through history – I worked for or selected by Tatas main competitors of Tata Tubes and Metal Box in 1974. In 1975 invented Efficient Cook Stoves which TERI couldn’t in 44 years in spite of Hundreds of Foreign Collaborations & Funding. 1976 onwards ‘Offered to Improve’ TRF Material Handling Plant, Scores of Inventions for Voltas & Rallies. I predicted within seconds of ‘First Look at NANO’ for UGLY DESIGN, Tin Body, Unequal Wheels. I lightly punched the Front Door and Tin Door caved in, it was unsafe when launched – Fires were common which it rectified.

In 2005 subscribed to INDICOM CDMA ‘Baby’ Mobile which offered‘Rs.1600 Free Calls’ which couldn’t be used because it was limited to calls to INDICOM Numbers – but Huawei who built the Mobile Phone was then about a $100m Company that is presently providing 50% of World’s Communication networks has revenue of $100b is private company but could easily be $1000b when listed on Stock Exchange. Mobile Chargers sourced by Tata Indicom were Defective – I had to change 4-5 of them. 2007 subscribed to WALKY – its agent Collected Money & Application gave SIM Card but I didn’t get WALKY.

In 2005 I was Spear Heading Technical side of ‘Campaign Against Fast Meters in Delhi’, supported TATAS in SASAN Matter but advised against 4,000 UMPP.

Had also reported how Tata introduced Mercedes Trucks in 1956 but didn’t upgrade Technology – in 1980 when FORD Trucks were imported – 6000 CC Truck was Effortlessly Carrying 50% More Payload at 50% more Speed.

At Taj Hotel recently when S. Ramdorai former CEO of TCS etc Fell On Flower Pots around the Platform I too was injured but no security officer of Taj came to enquire. I went to the reception and security staff with a ‘Yet to Be Opened First Aid Box’ came after 15m – 30m after the incident. When Ex CEO of TCS was Stretching his Back – I asked him are you all right. EVEN SMALL THINGS MATTER.

Taj Hotel has ‘Exclusive Location’ two DELHI METRO lines are just 1 kilometer away – a connecting FREE Service every 15m would ensure GUESTS may get FAST Access – not required to visit Taj Hotel in big cars that are parked on main roads. Dhaula Kuan to Airport highway is real bottleneck. In monsoon months most roads are flooded and DELHI METRO Offers quick access to Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and entire NCR.

TATA-SKY – 2000 Channels Poor Access, 24% Subscriber


In 2010 I opted for Videocon D2H because it offered MPEG4 technology and Quick access to Favored Channels from a list of Selected Channels in 4 Groups of 20.

TATA-SKY 2000 Channels are Difficult to Access, it has just 24% Market Share.

Set Top Box used have inbuilt Power Supply – Tata-Sky uses Adapter which means 40 Units more annual consumption – Rs.250 Cost – Rs.1500 over 6 years.

Its remote has too many buttons and almost invisible in LED Lights.

When we can Watch only One Channel at a time – why create COMPLICATED Packages? Instead of 15m Connections today TATA-SKY can have 100m.

TATA Group is Losing Market Share in All Sectors – Not Investing in R&D, Worse is Not in Key GROWTH Sectors, Mobile & Networks, Electric Mobility, Energy Efficiency, Water & Dams, Food Processing, Healthcare etc.

VIDEOCON along with D2H introduced LCD TV Sets, Mobile Phones etc but then entered Power Sector, Telecom and Lost on the way.
