” The telecom operators need to recognise that a good quality of service is integral to their credibility. They need to do three things – properly reconfigure their network, spend on infrastructure and ought not to sacrifice on voice for the more lucrative data.” – Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad to Business Line.

Well Mr. Minister. But what about releasing the more than Rs. 6,000 crore towards the refund of the spectrum surrendered by BSNL and Rs. 1,250 allotted for 2013-14 by the TRAI in lieu of ADC? If these amounts are released and paid to BSNL, it will be able to procure equipment, reconfigure the network, improve infrastructure and a better service.

Along with press statements, please implement your assurances also to revive BSNL. It will bring credibility to your words.
