The government has got Rs. 56,792 crores from the spectrum auction on the second day and more may be received in the coming days.

The government should at least allot Rs. 10,000 crore for BSNL from the above for modernisation and expansion. Since BSNL could not participate in the auction due to lack of funds and non-sanction from the government, the latter should allot spectrum free for providing 4G by BSNL to its customers.

The Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations should demand the above so that BSNL is able to improve its financial position and provide better service.
