BSNL was formed in 2000 during NDA government. It had assured that the financial viability the new corporation will be ensured through ADS, USOF and by reimbursement of the licence fee to be paid by the BSNL to government. All these are stopped after a few years and the BSNL is in real danger. It has accumulated a loss of more than Rs. 25,000 crores during the last four years. The situation is very critical.
Now that the NDA government has come to power, it is the responsibility of the government to ensure what the earlier NDA Government has assured to the workers and the country.
The Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations has submitted a Memorandum signed by the unions/associations on the major issues face by BSNL and the policy and support required from the government to revive the ailing government company. We have also asked for a meeting to present our points of view and suggestions how to improve BSNL.
Hope the minister will call the Forum for discussion.
