to outsource management and maintenance of its towers:
'BSNL plans to
outsource more than 50,000 towers and over 100,000 km of optic fibre cable, two
executives with the telco told ET. The deal could be worth more than Rs 5,000
crore ($1 billion) over five years. The move is expected to face stiff
resistance from about three lakh employees of the telco as it will impact close
to 30,000 jobs. The company plans to train and redeploy a significant section of
these employees to marketing roles, said the executives requesting anonymity.
Most employees are expected to resist transfer to the rolls of the IT firms that
win the outsourcing deal.'
'revolutionary' plans come with a catch: 'Tata Tele is not
the lone heart breaker in the highly competitive telecom space where companies
are announcing price-cuts and innovative call rates almost every day. There are
devils in the fine print of most of the lucrative offers, be it from market
leader Bharti Airtel, Reliance Communications, Vodafone Essar, Idea Cellular or
Aircel, as customers who lapped up these offers are beginning to discover.'

“In a market that is cluttered with many operators and
throws up confusing options, we are offering simplicity to consumers by being
the country’s most transparent, innovative and liberating telecom brand. The
first move on this front was to cut through the clutter and redefine the entire
pricing paradigm—from Day One of our launch, we have worked on a per-second
pricing model for almost everything, be it voice calls, VAS services, IVR
interactions... Our subscribers see that as true value and dependability, and
that is what has seen us see this initial success. Going forward, we will
continue to innovate and better the service experience through fantastic VAS
offerings and unique technology innovations.”

Meeting with GM (Rectt):
As desired by GM (Rectt) while we handed over a
letter on 7.9.2009 regarding rechecking/re-totaling of the marks of the
candidates who secured a few marks less than the qualifying marks in the LDCE
for promotion to SDE held on 15.7.2007, we met him today and discussed the
issue. GM (Rectt) informed us that the issue raised by us has been
examined and it has been decided, as requested in our letter, to review not only the specific cases submitted
by us but all such cases of candidates securing a few marks less than the
qualifying marks. This is an important
development and we are thankful to GM (Rectt) for having agreed to our request.
This is the result of our continuous and sincere pursuing of the issue, when no
other association ever cared to take up this issue. Although the process may
take some time to complete, we hope this will bring great relief to all
the affected candidates.
