Tata Teleservices (Maharashtra) Ltd, Reliance Jio Infocomm and three other companies were pulled up by India's accounting watchdog for allegedly understating their revenue by more than 148 billion Indian rupees, resulting in a shortfall of nearly 25.78 billion rupees to the exchequer, The Economic Times (India) reported.
