Recently an RTI report has stated that there are more than 3,000 vigilance cases pending in the Department of Telecom, of which mostly are connected with BSNL. There are various reports reaching us about the exploitation of the contract labours, by denying minimum wage, not implementing social security measures like EPF, ESI etc. and also by making them work much more than 8 hours in a day.
Both the corruption and exploitation are unethical and in violation of the laws of the land. A glorious PSU like BSNL can not afford to continue with these black spots tarnishing its image. It is also adversely affecting the motivation of the staff.
It is high time, that the DOT, BSNL Management, the unions and the workers unitedly initiate all out efforts to put an end to these contagious diseases and make BSNL healthy and wealthy.
A Corruption-Free, Exploitation-Free BSNL will be an asset to the Nation!
