 Hutchison-Essar: Inflated Ambitions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Essar, which is the second largest holder in the Hutch JV, has also thrown its hat in the ring with $11 bn for the remaining stake.
Hutchison Essar was pegged at $9-9.5 bn in June 2005 and at that time if Hutch had made its intentions clear, of selling its stake, it would have been the most sought after buying target.
Though buying Hutchison Essar would provide a much-needed fillip to Reliance Communications and Vodafone's businesses, as the former is keen to ramp-up its GSM operations while the latter would get a smooth entry in the Indian telecom market-but the unrealistic bid-up is likely to result in low value, even over the long run.

The rest is held by the Essar group, which also owns almost the entire stake in Aircell Digilink, the cellular licence holder for Haryana, Rajasthan and UP East (Aircell Digilink had its licence terminated in May 1999 for not paying up its licence fee dues).
In end-1999, when the Essar group approached financial services company GE Capital Services for a loan worth Rs 650 crore to pump into its cellular operations, it could manage to get the money only after the loan was guaranteed by none other than partner Hutchison.
In fact, insiders at Essar say that the Ruias have entered into a tacit agreement with Hutchison that entails Essar's exit from the telecom business in favour of the multinational when these telecom companies are ready to go for an initial public offer (IPO) in the not-too-distant future.
