The Telephone Advisory Committees (TAC) constituted for BSNL is no longer necessary. It was constituted at the time when there was only DOT providing telephone services. There are members from 20 to 80 in these committees which are at SSA and circle levels.The requirement of the same is over after the private companies have started providing services. No private telecom company is having such TACs. It is a huge expenditure for BSNL towards, TA and other expenditure of the members, for holding meetings etc.

The new minister should see that these TACs are scrapped immediately.
