BSNL and its employees including casual and contract workers are making all out efforts for the improvement of services and making the PSU viable. It is expected that by 2017-18, it will post profits. For the last two financial years there was operational profit.
It is the duty of the central government, who is the 100% owner of BSNL, to give all assistance to the PSU at this juncture. Two of the most important issues which will help BSNL in a large way are:
- Allow 4G Spectrum free to BSNL.
- Direct all central/state governments and PSUs to avail BSNL services mandatory as is the case of Air India Service.
Strong pressure should be brought upon the Central Government to achieve these important demands.
