At last, as per reports, DOT has released the Rs. 1,250 crore USOF subsidy allotted for BSNL for the year 2012-13. This is in lieu of ADC, which was stopped earlier. Although the amount was allotted by the USOF two years back, it was not paid to BSNL on flimsy grounds.
Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations has been continuously demanding release of the same, since BSNL in big financial problem. At last, now the same has been released. BSNL can utilise the same for procurement of equipment.
