Government is finalising the Telecom Policy 2018. The government has taken note of the demands of the private telecom companies and so called experts in telecom sector. Of course, the government will not have time to consult with the BSNL staff unions, who have much stake in the BSNL and its improvement.
As in the case earlier New (National) Telecom Policies, it is expected this time also, so many benefits and concessions will be granted to the private telecom companies and BSNL will be kept in chains.
BSNL Unions and Associations have to immediately intervene and ensure that sufficient safeguards and support to BSNL are included in the Telecom Policy 2018.
