NEW DELHI: All mobile carriers have failed the call drop test conducted by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (trai) in Darjeeling and Sikkim in the month of May this year. In a separate call drop test conducted by trai in Ranchi in June 2016, all except Telenor 2G have failed, the regulator said on Wednesday. 

"All the operators failed to meet the Call Drop Rate benchmark of under 2%," the authority said in a statement on the call drop tests conducted in Darjeeling and Sikkim. "Most of the operators failed to meet the Call Drop Rate benchmark of under 2%, except Telenor 2G," trai added on tests conducted in Ranchi.

State-run BSNL was the worst performer in both the call drop test in Darjeeling and Sikkim and Ranchi with a call drop rate of 21.05% in 2G and 17.11% in 3G respectively. 

Leading telecom company Bharti Airtel failed both the tests in 2G and 3G with call drop rates over 15% and 5% in Darjeeling and Sikkim and Ranchi respectively. Call drop rates of Idea and Vodafone were well over the 2% benchmark in both the tests too. 

Most of the operators failed to meet the call setup success rate benchmark of over 95% except Aircel 2G and 3G, MTS CDMA and Vodafone 3G in Darjeeling and Sikkim. However, in Ranchi, most of the operators met this parameter except Aircel 2G, Airtel 2G & 3G, BSNL 2G & 3G and Telenor 2G, the report said. 

The audit was carried out by audit agency IMRB International in the city of Darjeeling and Sikkim from 25th to 27th May 2016 and in Ranchi from 1st to 3rd June 2016 covering various locations in the city over a distance of 320 kilometers.
