CHQ writes to Prime Minister on Implementation of commitment by Government of India in ensuring the financial viability of BSNL:

'It may kindly be recalled that the NDA Government had assured at the time of formation of BSNL in October 2000 that BSNL will be compensated for any loss making services in remote and rural areas and the financial viability of BSNL will be ensured through ADC, reimbursement of licence fee and support through USO fund. After a few years, the UPA government had stopped all these financial assistances, except support through USO Fund. Meanwhile in 2010, BSNL had to cough up Rs 8313 crores to the government as BWA spectrum charges and was allotted non-standardised band of BWA spectrum for 21 circles.' Read More

Meeting with Sr. GM (Pers):

GS met Sr.GM (Pers) today and discussed the following:

1. Revision in posting orders of the senior executives and lady executives of Chennai Telephones and Tamilnadu Circles:

Sr.GM (Pers) told us that soon a decision may be taken in this regard but only those cases which were strongly recommended by the concern CGM of that circle will be taken for consideration. We told him that already these excutives have been relieved from the respective circles and how could they get the recommendation by the CGM.

Sr.GM (Pers) further said that only a few cases, related to critical illness, may be considered and it will not be possible to accommodate large number of executives in these circles.

Sr.GM (Pers) told us that Personnel section has already given permission for holding of DPC but due to some technical reasons it is being delayed.
