AIBDPA/ BSNL-FTTH/2020 22nd July, 2020


Shri P.K. Purwar,


Bharat Sanchar Bhawan,

Sub: – Provision of FTTH at the residences of retired BSNL employees with concession – reg.

Ref: (1) BSNL CO No.2-7/2007-PHA dated 20-07-2007.

(2) BSNL CO No.2-6/2005 dated 03-06-2011.

We wish to bring to your kind notice the following issue for favourable consideration.

BSNL Retirees have been provided with rent free residential land line connection and granted broadband with concession vide orders referred to above.

You may be aware of the fact that in many places landline phones are not being maintained due to shortage of staff and lack of accessories. As such the services are virtually denied to the retirees. In the case of broadband, the assured speed of a particular plan opted is not at all available in the sub premises.

Now, BSNL is concentrating on FTTH and many broadband subscribers, including pensioners are switching over to FTTH. So, we request you to kindly grant concession to Retirees in FTTH, as in the case of broadband.

It is regretted to point out that our repeated requests to grant concession in broadband to DOT Retirees are yet to be considered. We would request you once again to extend the same concession being given to BSNL retirees to the DoT Retirees also.

Awaiting early positive action and

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely

K.G. Jayaraj
