It is reported in the press that CMD BSNL has stated that the proposal for subsidiary Tower Company, hived off from BSNL, is awaiting decision of the government. it is also reported that by hiving off towers, an amount of about Rs. 20,000 crore can be collected, but the same will be with the new company.

Workers have got very serious reservation on this proposal.It will seriously and adversely affect BSNL.

Before any final decision is taken, discussion with the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations should be conducted and their opinion considered.
