With continuing reduction in international telephony rates Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited's (VSNL) topline growth continues to be under jeopardy.

The company has done well to prevent erosion in top and bottomline. The sharp cuts in telecom tariffs have prevented any realisation growth. Performance has been salavaged due to the increase in international telephony traffic, which was up 17.8% for 1HFY01.
