The government has been endangering Nepal Telecom's business by backing the king's son-in-law Raj Bahadur Singh to launch his mobile service company Spice Nepal. The future of Telecom's prepaid and Code-Division Multiple Access services are uncertain. It is clear that by restricting its services the government is doing everything to destabilise Nepal Telecom just to benefit said son-in-law's company when he launches his service. Due to government negligence and vested interests, Nepal Telecom has already suffered a loss of Rs 110 million. But even after Spice Nepal is launched, the question of Nepal Telecom' s uncertainty remains.
