The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), the organisation of the private GSM Operators has opposed the proposal of the GoM on Revival of BSNL, MTNL to mandate the Central and State Governments and their PSUs to compulsorily use the PSU telephones.
There is no logic in their opposition. The private companies are continuously seeking all kinds of relaxation whether it is on tax, licence charges or revenue sharing. In addition, they manipulate the accounts to pay less to the government. A large number of cases are pending in this way. They want all benefits, but they oppose even a small benefit for the telecom PSUs.
The Government should immediately take decision on the proposal of the GoM and make it compulsory for all the Governments and PSUs compulsorily take the BSNL MTNL telephones and telecom services for their use.
