Aruna Sundararajan, Administrator,USOF, and discussed about the release of the Rs. 1,250 crores which is allotted to BSNL in lieu of ADC for the year 2012-13. Administrator USOF stated that the matter will be favourably considered.

This was recommended by the TRAI two years back. This amount is very much necessary for the financial viability of BSNL. Forum has been pressing for the release of the amount for the last two years. Unnecessary delay has already occurred. It is hoped that USOF will take immediate action.
