It is reported that Shri M.F.Farooqui, Secretary, DOT has directed BSNL to expedite its projects. As per Secretary DOT, many projects are much behind the time schedule which adversely affect the services.
During the meeting of the Forum with Secretary, DOT and other top officers of the DOT, the same point was mentioned by them.
There may be many reasons and justifications for delay, but it has to be dealt with and the projects completed in time. Then only BSNL will survive.
One top official told the Forum that the Rs.1,500 crore in lieu of ADC approved for BSNL is not being paid because BSNL is not able maintain the level of standard of service required and also lacking in completion of projects entrusted with it.
I will quote the old saying : PERFORM OR PERISH !
