By 31st January 78,569 officials, more than 50% of the total staff, will be retiring from BSNL. In addition, hundreds will be retiring on superannuation. With such a large reduction of work force, how is BSNL going to function? What is the working plan that is prepared by BSNL management?
Nothing has been made clear. Some orders and press statements are issued. But what is the present position? Only 20 days are left now for the large scale VRS retirement.
To avoid difficulties in serving the customers, immediate action plan is needed. It should be prepared in discussion with the staff side / unions and associations. There is hardly any time to finanlise.
