After sending out about 80,000 employees, about half of the entire workforce in BSNL, there seems to be acute shortage of staff to attend to normal working. No new recruitment is being made. Out of the the total of about one lakh casual and contract workers, through retrenchment, the number has been reduced to about 10,000. Faults are increasing, delay is occurring and subscriber satisfaction is coming down. There is no doubt for anybody that more staff are required. Whether the management is taking any action in this connection?
