Functioning of restructuring cell of BSNL corporate office New Delhi It is a big fun that the restructuring cell of BSNL corporate office has notified to hold meeting of PLI on 09-03-2018 as per decision taken in the last meeting held on 15-02-2018, and it is confirmed on 07-03-2018. But we surprised to see that as per letter No.-1-5/2018/Restg, dt-08-03-2018. The notified meeting is postponed.
This practice is viewed regularly at the part of restructuring cell in corporate office. We strongly oppose such type of irresponsible functioning of the restructuring cell. We hope higher management in BSNL corporate office will take note of it. If it happens like this who will monitor the functioning of field units.

A meeting is held at the Sanchar Bhawan today the 24.02.2018, between Shri Manoj Sinha, Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications and the All Unions and Associations of BSNL. Together with the Minister, Secretary, DoT, Special Secretary, DoT, Joint Secretary (Admn.), DoT, OSD to the Hon’ble Minister, CMD BSNL and Director (HR) BSNL were present. From the All Unions and Associations of BSNL, Com. P. Abhimanyu, GS, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE, Com. K. Sebastin, GS, SNEA, Com. Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com. K. Jayaprakash, GS, FNTO, Com. N.D. Ram, GS, SEWA BSNL, Com. Ravi Shil Verma, GS, AIGETOA, Com. Mallikarjuna, President, BSNL MS and Com. S.D. Sharma, GS, BSNL ATM, participated in the discussions. The representatives of the AUAB heartily thanked the Hon’ble Minister for taking out time to meet them. Detailed discussions took place on the memorandum submitted to the Hon’ble Minister, the details of which are as follows:-
(1) 3rd Pay Revision.
So far, the DoT has been maintaining that BSNL employees are not eligible for 3rd Pay Revision. In today’s meeting the Hon’ble Minister agreed that the issue of 3rd Pay Revision of BSNL employees would be processed and would be taken for the approval of the DPE and the Cabinet. This is a great achievement. We have broken the stalemate that prevailed in the Pay Revision issue. At the same time we have to be vigilant, till the final approval is given by the Cabinet.
(2) Formation of Subsidiary Tower Company.
The AUAB representatives expressed their apprehension that in the name of formation of the Tower Company, the 66,000 mobile towers of BSNL are being snatched away from BSNL. They also pointed out that the decision of the Cabinet that, the Subsidiary Tower Company would remain under the control of BSNL Management, has been violated, through the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of Subsidiary Tower Company. They further pointed out that even BSNL Management was not taken in to confidence in the appointment of an IAS officer as the CMD of the Subsidiary Tower Company, which clearly shows that the Subsidiary Tower Company would not be under the control of BSNL Management. The reply given by the Hon’ble Minister in this regard is not satisfactory. The AUAB has to find ways and means to ensure the rolling back of the Subsidiary Tower Company.
(3) Pension Revision.
The representatives of AUAB strongly argued that pension revision should be done to the BSNL pensioners. It was pointed out that the BSNL pensioners and the Central Government pensioners are covered by the same rules. They argued that when pension revision is settled for the Central Government pensioners, the same should not be denied to the BSNL pensioners. The Hon’ble Minister assured that needful action would be taken to settle this issue.
(4) Calculation of Pension Contribution.
It was strongly argued that pension contribution in respect of BSNL employees cannot be calculated on the basis of maximum of the pay scale, when the same is calculated on the basis of actual basic pay, in the case of Central Government employees. It was pointed out that as per the DoP&T order issued in 2006, pension contribution of the Central Government employees is being deducted on the basis of actual pay only. The Hon’ble Minister directed the Secretary, DoT, that this issue should be settled as per Government orders.
(5) Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL.
The AUAB representatives pointed out that it will be extremely difficult for BSNL to compete with the private operators, without providing 4G service. They strongly argued that the proposal of the BSNL Management, for the allotment of 4G spectrum by the Government, should be accepted. The Hon’ble Minister replied in the positive and assured that needful action would be taken.
(6) Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58.
The AUAB representatives strongly argued that the retirement age of the BSNL employees should not be reduced from 60 to 58, as a measure for the revival of BSNL. The Hon’ble Minister told that the government is not having any proposal to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58.
(7) Left out issues of the 2nd PRC.
The AUAB representatives pointed out that this issue is lingering on very long time and needs to be settled. The Hon’ble Minister stated that this issue would be looked into by the Secretary, DoT.
At the end of the meeting, the Hon’ble Minister stated that the representatives of AUAB could meet him again, as well as the Secretary, DoT, in continuation of today’s meeting. The representatives of AUAB heartily thanked the Minister for his positive response to most of the issues.
After the meeting with the Hon’ble Minister, a meeting of the AUAB was held in the FNTO’s office. All the General Secretaries expressed their satisfaction with regards to the progress in the issues. They also expressed the view that all these have happened only because of the united struggles and massive mobilisations by the entire Non-Executives and Executives, for which they deserve appreciation.

CMD BSNL convened a meeting of the members of steering committee of All Unions and Associations of BSNL. He apprised that BSNL’s net worth is about 35,000 Crore. The operational profit of BSNL last year was about 4000 Crore that was significant to other private operator. The EBITDA of BSNL was positive of Rs. 1684 Crore. BSNL’s asset reserves is Rs. 91684 Crore, land value is about 789 Crore. The loss of BSNL has gone down. BSNL is having only 4200 Crore’s loan which is insignificant comparison other Telecom Operators. In view of this BSNL is a very strong organization, neither SICK nor incipient SICK.
CMD further mentioned that 4G spectrum and technology is a must in BSNL for the public perception and its requirement. In view of that BSNL Board has already taken a decision in its last Board meeting held on 21.12.2017 to get allocated 4G spectrum from DoT and DPR has been sent to DoT for approval. BSNL needs to pay Rs. 16000 Crore to get allocated 4G spectrum from DoT for next 10 years. BSNL has decided to launch 4G mobile service on 31st January 2018 by improving its existing mobile network in some of the Circles. After allocation of 4G spectrum from DoT, the 4G service will be rolled out throughout the county. We have requested DoT to utilize 5000 Crore remaining equity of BSNL in allocation of the 4G spectrum. Rs. 17500 Crore was Govt. equity in BSNL at the time its formation. Out of which equity of about Rs. 12500 Crore has already been utilized. 50% spectrum charges can be adjusted against equity and remaining amount will be paid in 10 installment in 10 years. In this manner BSNL is trying to get 4G allocation from DoT at the earliest.
Also discussed the issue of cancellation of the free calling from landlines on Sundays, as well as change in the timing of the night free calling.
On the issue of creation of Tower Subsidiary, CMD mentioned that in case the Tower Subsidiary 100% control remains with BSNL than it is beneficial to BSNL otherwise it may not be beneficial. The appointment of CMD Tower Subsidiary Company has been decided by DoT which was not in his notice. All the representatives expressed their resentment against the creation of Tower Subsidiary.

  03-01-2018 : DOT appointed Shri Amit Yadav (IAS) ,Joint Secretary (Admin), DOT as CMD of tower subsidiary company of BSNL.
DOT vide its letter no.79-51/2017 -SU dated 21.12.2017, has appointed Shri Amit Yadav (IAS) ,Joint Secretary (Admin), DOT as CMD of tower subsidiary company of BSNL. It is surprising that as per Union Cabinet decision the tower subsidiary will be fully owned by BSNL , but after seeing the DOT order it is difficult to understand that whether tower subsidiary will be controlled directly by DOT or through BSNL. We strongly oppose such active move of Government to fragment BSNL assets. Click Here
  03-01-2018 : Comrades Believe you are aware that Shri. Amit Yadav IAS officer has been appointed as CMD of Tower Company (so called subsidiary of BSNL). It is a calculated move to dismantle BSNL by taking away vital and potential earning assets- towers- of BSNL. It is surely a sinister and deadly move to disintegrate BSNL and facilitate other service providers to these towers of BSNL to enable them deeper penetration in wireless segment without any capital investment. BSNL has made incredible capital investment in building mobile tower infrastructure which is its greatest strength as of now.
It is not going to end here- very shortly govt. will go ahead with creation of land assets Company by taking away premier and highly potential land assets of BSNL throughout Country and allow Private entrepreneurs to build commercial complexes on this gold mine of BSNL.
If this is allowed to continue, in due course of time, BSNL will be consigned to flames and get buried deep down the ground.
Comrades you understand the grave seriousness of the situation and the immediate massive organisational response that is needed to force the govt. to reverse its decision of creating subsidiary tower Company which is fraught with deadly consequences. If we do not act and succeed now, then we have to forget about BSNL.
