That is absolutely true. The total subscriber base fell by 8.2 million in April 2020. Ironically, the rural subscriber base increased marginally while the urban mobile subscriber base dipped by 9 million. In total, Vodafone lost 4.5 million subscribers and Bharti Airtel lost 5.2 million in the given month. Reliance Jio, however, added 1.6 million subscribers.

As a result, Reliance Jio now commands 33.85% wireless market share, followed by Airtel and Vodafone Idea with market shares of 28.06% and 27.37% respectively.
