The financial viability as well as the market share of BSNL has been declining continuously after 2006-2007, mainly due to non-procurement of mobile equipments which were drastically required in expand the services. The 45 million lines tender which was very much necessary was cancelled by the government without any justification and with malafide intentions to help the private companies.
Again the 95 million line tender was also cancelled. Now 4.5 million lines also cancelled. In fact after 2007, there has not been any major procurement of lines which resulted in the present tracgic situation.
Whether the new CMD, R.K.Upadhyay will change the situation by being pro-active and dynamic? Let us see.
