Vodafone's India venture reports third-quarter loss

Feb 13 (Reuters) - Vodafone Idea Ltd on Thursday reported a sixth straight quarterly loss, as the troubled Indian mobile carrier shed millions of mobile subscribers.

The quarterly results come as Vodafone Idea and other Indian telecom firms are pressured by government demands to pay $13 billion in overdue levies in a long-contested dispute.

Vodafone Idea had reported a loss of 509.22 billion rupees in the second quarter of 2019, the biggest loss ever by a company in Indian corporate history. (Reporting by Philip George in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
