I am reproducing a report published in the Economic Times:

“The government is likely to declare some 400 officers in the telecom department as surplus following their refusal to consider re-employment in BSNL.

These Indian Telecom Service executives, who had transferred to the DoT from cash-strapped BSNL in November, are likely to be moved to a surplus staffers cell in the HRD ministry, according to a senior official of BSNL.”
