There are a large number of BSNL buildings, quarters etc. which are vacant. Some of these are given on rent to central Government departments, state governments, PSUs etc. on rent, but majority buildings / quarters are still lying vacant. Information on many such buildings obtained through RTIs has been handed over to CMD BSNL with the request to take urgent action for getting them rented. This is only a microscopic section of the vacant buildings.
The BSNL Management should urgently take a proper inventory of such buildings and quarters and see that they are got rented, which will get a handsome amount to BSNL. The question of allotting quarters to Pensioners and casual/contract workers at reasonable rates should also be considered.
