The leaders of the Joint Forum of BSNL & MTNL Unions/Associations met Shri Kapil Sibal, Communications Minister and presented our strong demand for the early repatriation of the ITS officers from BSNL to DOT, as opted by them. A detailed note on the matter was submitted to him. The Joint Forum demanded that immediate repatriation should be done failing which all the BSNL absorbed employees also should be taken back to DOT (Government ) Service. The Minister patiently heard the demands and stated that he is aware of the developments and will look in to the same.
A letter demanding for implementation of the assurances at the time of formation of the PSUs, special consideration for the financial viability of the BSNL & MTNL, and a copy of the letter sent to the Prime minister were also handed over to the Minister for early decision.
