Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. Key Developments

Government Does Not plan to divest its stake in BSNL and Air India

Government has no plan to divest its stake in ailing state-run telecom firm BSNL and national carrier Air India, which have been incurring huge losses. At this time, there is no proposal to disinvest BSNL and Air India," Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha. Jayant Sinha replied to a question on whether government plans to include public sector enterprises such as BSNL and Air India along with steel plants in the disinvestment list.

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited Employees to Resort Two Days Strike on 21-22 April Demanding Revival of BSNL

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) employees across India will go on strike for two days, on 21-22 April 2015. As per the call of the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations, the BSNL Employees, both executives and non-executives numbering around 0.225 million, will resort to Two Days Strike demanding immediate action from the Government and BSNL Management for the Revival of BSNL. The government has withdrawn from its assurance to pay ADC, refund of licence fee and liberal subsidy from the USO fund, for compensating BSNL for the loss of about INR 100,000 million per year for providing services to the villages and rural areas in the country which is as per the universal connectivity policy of the government. The present loss of the company around INR 70,000- INR 80,000 million per year will be covered and there will be profit for BSNL if these assurances are honoured and implemented. Immediate purchase of various equipments for providing mobile, broadband etc. services are most important. Sufficient funds are required for the same, which BSNL is not having at present. An amount of INR 67,000 million is due to be paid to BSNL by Government towards the cost of spectrum, which the BSNL has surrendered. An amount of INR 12,500 million, allotted to BSNL in lieu of ADC for providing loss making connections for 2012-13, is still pending payment. The employees are demanding that these two amounts be paid immediately so that BSNL can purchase required equipment. The Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations has suggested various proposals for providing better service to the customers on which also no action is taken. The Forum also demands that BSNL should start 4G services without any delay. It also has demanded that it should be made mandatory for the Central/State Governments and PSUs to take BSNL service as was done in the case of Air India. The Two Days Strike on 21-22 April will start from the mid-night of 20-21 April 2015.
