Today, 1st October 2013 is the 13th Formation Anniversary Day of BSNL, the Telecom PSU. At the time of formation as also for the next 5 years, BSNL was the biggest telecom service provider in India and the 7th largest telecom company in the world. But due to the neo-liberal and anti-PSU policy of the government as also mismanagement, the BSNL has become the 4th company in Indian Telecom and its market share has gone down to 13-14%.The private telecom companies flourished with the favour and support of the government.
The workers under the leadership of the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations have already started serious effort to get the services improved and also pressurised the government to change its anti-PSU policy and support its own company BSNL. Management should become committed and efficient. Workers also have got their share of work to give a better service to the customers.
This anniversary day is a day to ponder over all these and take important decisions to strengthen BSNL. Let us ensure that BSNL survive, strengthen and is enabled to provide a better service to the Nation!
