03-10-2013:- CHENNAI: The whistleblower, who exposed the secret telephone exchange set up by former Union telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran at his Boat Club residence in Chennai, was a BSNL subdivisional engineer, whose pension has now been stopped on disciplinary grounds.CK Mathivanan carried out a campaign within BSNL against Maran for three years for alleged misuse of infrastructure to facilitate free transmission of data and visuals for a television channel owned by Dayanidhi's elder brother Kalanithi Maran.

After retiring in June 2013, Mathivanan found that he was among the staffers who were penalized for an agitation against superiors, including those under whose names Maran was allotted 323 ISDN lines. Mathivanan is yet to receive his pension, but the fact that his actions helped expose a Rs 440-crore revenue loss to the PSU is a matter of his satisfaction.

Today, the National Federation for Telecom Employees deputy general secretary says he was relieved when he heard the news that the CBI had filed an FIR in the case. His modesty does not permit him to take credit for it, though. "In fact, it was not I who exposed the scam. It got exposed because of the feud in the DMK," he told TOI.

According to him, Maran's exchange was secretly set up by the BSNL Chennai circle office in 2007. "I happened to see a file in which then general manager (operations) G Selvam had written that other than himself, chief general manager (CGM) and deputy general manager (operations), no one else should come to know about the 323 lines being provided at Maran's house. It was a state-of-the-art exchange, which was connected by just one pair of optical fibre cables. It could carry huge amount of data and visuals at very high speed," said Mathivanan.

After a preliminary probe, a CBI team had filed a report recommending action against Maran and senior BSNL officials. But the departmental nod remained elusive. The issue came back into focus after a PIL was filed in Supreme Court in 2012 seeking action against the former Union minister.

Trouble had started for the trade unionist in September 2011, when he, along with 100 colleagues, protested against former BSNL CGM MP Velusamy (in whose name the 323 lines were allotted) visiting BSNL Chennai circle headquarters after his retirement.

"We had information that he had visited CGM's office several times to destroy files pertaining to the secret exchange. The new CGM, A Subramaniam, acted with a vengeance against us. Seventy-eight people faced a break in their service. I was given the maximum penalty, which would have led to my dismissal or compulsory retirement. The next CGM allowed me to retire, but recommended a cut in my pension. BSNL CMD, however, did not accept the recommendation. The CMD referred the case back to the CGM for review and it is pending there," said Mathivanan.

His prayer to the CBI is that it should expand the scope of its investigation to find out whether such secret exchanges were set up in other parts of the country as well. "What BSNL has lost is huge money. It (Rs 440 crore) is adequate to pay minimum bonus to 2.89 lakh employees of BSNL for four years in a row. It should be recovered from Maran," Mathivanan said.(Courtesy TOI)

02-10-2013:- Gandhi Jayanti or Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti is observed every year as a national holiday to commemorate the birth of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (October 2, 1869 - January 30, 1948). His non-violence or satyagraha continues to influence political leaders and movements till date. The celebration and essence of Gandhi Jayanti is not restricted within India and also observed by the United Nations as the International Day of non-violence that aims to disseminate his philosophy, principle and believe in non-violence through proper education and public awareness.

His preachings are the only source to find peace in the country and to make INDIA self sufficient. In the recent days we have been seeing deviations from the path that Gandhi followed,and naturally we have been seeing the ill effects of the same.

We insisted that it is not prudent to keep the post of GM vacant for years together and naturally this concept is unproductive. Either they may be degraded to TDM level or they may form a part of GM area i.e., a GM can take care of two to three SSAs due to which lot of expenditure on establishment can be saved and the staff can be diverted to field. The decisions are also likely to be fast. CGMT assured to take up the issue with the corporate office. However, association will take up the issue with CHQ also.

09-08-2013:- Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed. The Quran clearly says "O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you many learn piety and rightousness" - Al Baqarah, 2:183. Fasting is to be done by all able bodied men and women and children who have reached puberty. If a person is sick or has some medical reason or if a women is pregnant then they are waived from fasting.

Also when one is fasting and feels hunger and thirst he has to remember other people in the world who do not have food and water. Charity is one of the extremely recommended acts during fasting. Muslims are required to give minimum of 2.5% of their annual savings as charity to poor and needy people. Also there are various sayings of the prophet (pbuh) where he has said that any charity made in Ramadan is multiplied upto 70 times. If some people are poor and cannot afford to give money then even a smile is an act of charity.

May Allah bless us all and forgive all our sins and make us and good human beings.

CS (SNEA) and GS(Officiating JTO's association) were also present during the session.

Com GS Prahlad Rai touched upon many issues of vital importance to the executives and the gist is

Pention contribution at the highest of the basic pay than the current basic pay is costing the company to the tune of Rs 400 Crores more than required.The loan what so ever was not taken by BSNL is shown as notional and BSNL is asked to pay the interest at very high rates,compulsorily.As the unions and associations have been opposing the divestment of BSNL we could save the national property worth several lacs of crores from getting diverted to private people.Remember the case of VSNL.MTNL is disinvested is not showing any appreciable difference and if so where is the need to disinvest BSNL.Even if disinvestment is made to the tune of 30% there is no guarentee that the money so got will be utilised for BSNL/VRS.That money will be utilised by Govt for education roads etc,.

VRS was imposed on MTNL.But what is the result?.Things have not improved.For them they do not have Govt pention.Management is not ready to discuss the issue of managing BSNL after VRS and BSNL being a PAN INDIA company cannot be compared to other smaller PSUs.If unbundling of Copper to the last mile is agreed the revenue that we have been getting by L/L and B/B ,L/C etc, we will be losing.GOI is yet to refund spectrum charges to us.and JOINT forum is persueing such issues.

In the field there are no stores for maintenance such as Drop wire ,instruments,cables and management wants us to bring profits.But ,we can surely say that BSNL executives have been performing very well in the given circumstances.repatriation of ITS officers was ordered because of us only and they have been still continueing without any conviction/commitment.If the agrred 78.2% IDA fixation is not given we may have to go to court.

GS also has thrown light on the issues various DPCs,issue of AD(OL),Civil and electrical wing issues and replied to all the queries raised by the comrades.

CS summed up the deliberations by giving suitable replies to the queries raised by members in between and presented a memnto to GS.

The meeting was chaired by Com Raja sekhar President and Vote of thanks submitted by Com Ram mohan OS.

13-03-2013:- To a question that the MOC&IT was put i.e.Two of your PSUs are not doing well. Is there a case for selling stake in them?,the answer from Sri. Kapil Sibal is

Both BSNL and MTNL were not really making losses. How did they become loss-making? BSNL and MTNL paid Rs 28,000 crore for spectrum. They were forced to buy spectrum at that price. MTNL borrowed money from bank to pay to Government of India. They are now paying interest to bank and they are not getting enough income. So they are becoming sick. Same is the case with BSNL.

Now either the government bails them out because it can't tell them that they are sick after taking Rs 28,000 crore and ask them to earn. At this point of time and in these market conditions, we do not want to allow any private equity into BSNL and MTNL. We cannot throw our silver in the market at a throwaway price. We will go to government and say some method must be found to compensate public sector companies for the money they paid for spectrum.

Spectrum can't be profit-making business for government. This is the heart of the problem. Something for social purpose can't be seen as that. A public asset can't be used to fill up the coffers of government. That's where people (read CAG) went wrong. The problem started in 2010 and the genesis is the CAG report. Before that there was no problem with the sector. The genesis of the problem is that had government sold spectrum in market, it could have got Rs 1.76 lakh crore but that was not the policy of the government. Courtesy TOI.

13-03-2013:- Comrades,the action of BSNL management on dated 11-3-2013 has really made all the absorbed employees of BSNL "DUMB".It took time to understand what exactly has happened.Probably BSNL is of the opinion that it took a very wise step as it it had hit two birds in a single shot.

BSNL on one side obliged the HIGH COURT by repatriating all the ITS officers working in BSNL/MTNL who were on deemed deputation,and which was the direction given by the High Court.On the other side it implemented the Cabinet note on the issue of Absorption/repatriation of ITS officers and continueing the same set of people in the same posts and they are even excempted from physically reporting to DoT on their repatriation and both the actions on a single day.That is how they have hit two birds in a single shot.

But, was this the anticipation of High Court or the spirit of judgement of High court is to be introspected.Or was this the demand of lakhs of BSNL/MTNL staff under the banner of JOINT FORUM?.Naturally all have become spell bound and do not have any words to utter.

If similar type of intelligance was exhibited in facing the competetion with other private operators,we would not have been in this pathetic condition of not having PLI,Not having LTC,Not revising transport allowance,no recruitment of young blood etc,.

The idea of the management seems to be to take care of a particular category of people at any cost.

CHQ will not be a onlooker to such actions of the management and we are sure that nobody will be able to appreciate this type of action.

If prompt action as in this is taken for all the pending issues in courts,definitely the DPCs for promotion from JTO to SDE,JAO to AO ,steno to PA,LICE for JTO,DPC from DE to DGM,the issue of raj bhasha adhikaris etc, can be immediately settled.But,it is proved that such action is on selective basis only.

Comrades,let us be on alert mode and watch the devolopments.

19.02.2013:Status of ITS Officers absorption issue: GS, AGS(HQ) met concern DoT officers and discussed regarding ITS Officers absorption issue. It is understood that the Cabinet Note sent by DoT has been approved by Cabinet in its meeting held on 13.02.2013. The silent feature of the Cabinet Note are reliably learnt as under :

(a) The absorption process of Group-'A' Officers in BSNL/ MTNL will end henceforth.

(b) The Group-'A' & 'B' level Officers absorbed in BSNL/MTNL, their seniority is de-linked with the Group-'A' officers on deemed deputation to BSNL/MTNL.

(c) The Group-'A' & 'B' level executives of BSNL/MTNL will get promotion against STS/JAG/SAG/HAG level posts on priority. The 941 ITS Officers in BSNL and 83 ITS Officers in MTNL will be posted against remaining vacant JAG/SAG/HAG level posts.

(d) The deemed deputation of 941 ITS Officers in BSNL and 83 ITS Officers in MTNL is allowed to continue for the next 10 years. About 40 ITS Officers from lower grade (i.e. JAG) will be relieved every year progressively. (Similarly 10-15 ITS officers in SAG/HAG grade will retire every year). In this manner, in the next 10 years all the ITS Officers on deemed deputation in BSNL/MTNL will be repatriated to DoT.

(e) The ITS Officers cadre will be restructured in DoT shortly and presently 463 ITS officers will be accommodated in DoT and against these 463 posts of JAG/SAG/HAG, the ITS officers will get their promotion till the time cadre is restructured in DoT.

(f) During the period of 10 years, BSNL/MTNL Managements have to ensure to create their own top level Management so that 40 ITS Officers are relieved progressively on every year basis.

It seems that Hon'ble Court may not allow to continue deemed deputation in view of the earlier Govt. of India's policy, Court decision and discrimination towards absorbed employees. However, Association will continue to fight organisanally and legally against discrimination.

Our BSNL CMD Shri RK Upadhyay's interview with CNBC-TV18!!!! .BSNL's turnaround move: New chief to issue 15 m GSM tenders.

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) was once India�s largest integrated telecom player, a company with assets and a network to beat the best in the world. Things have changed now; competition has overtaken it and now the new man at the helm of BSNL, CMD, RK Upadhyay who took over very recently has a tough challenge to review this company both as a national asset and also for the sake of its employees.

In an interview with CNBC-TV18�s Siddarth Zarabi, Upadhyay discusses the way forward and the future of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited Upadhyay said that BSNL has missed the mobile revolution from 2007-2011 as it did not procure any GSM equipment during this period. Hence the company is bleeding and unable to match pace with the fast growing industry.

"We are now planning to go for an approximately 15 million GSM lines tender, the work is in very advance stage and I hope that very soon this tender may be floated," Upadhyay added.

Q: You have just got into a company which was once an absolute asset for this country. But in the last four years, it has slipped from being somewhere at the very top to a company which is now number six in revenue market share. It has been making losses in the past four years and there are big question about its future. You have perhaps the toughest job in the telecom sector in this country. So, how is it for you and what are your plans going forward?

A: At this juncture, its one of the toughest job in the industry but I am quite confident that with the support of all the stakeholders it�s definitely possible to turnaround BSNL in a foreseeable future. We found that our total revenue of BSNL has been continuously on decline since past couple of years. My first job hence is to arrest that decline and then try and increase it. We were Department of Telecom (DoT) and then we were cord out of DoT in October 2000 and made into a corporation.

That day on we were supposed to work on commercial lines and compete with Greenfield operators. So not being Greenfield operator has a disadvantage that we inherited a large legacy staff. The total workforce with me today is 280,000.

Q: All your other competitors don�t even have that large workforce.

A: Yes, some of the industry analysts say that I shouldn�t have more than 100,000. So that�s the situation. You will be surprised to know that about 60% of my total revenue was towards wage bill. Any business in this world, more so telecom, which is operating in a very hyper competitive scenario, can�t afford 60% of its revenue to go only towards salary bill.

Q: And perhaps no other operator in the world even those which are state-owned would have 60% wage bill component?

A: Definitely not, because if you are paying 60% towards wage bill then for running the operations what is left. Then coupled with that you are in a scenario where the technological innovations, developments are catching up very fast so therefore you must have money for capex. Unless and until you go on renewing your assets you go on losing your business.

Q: I want to take one of the first important points that you spoke about- arresting the decline in revenues. Give us some sense of the number then what sort of targets you have set in internally because you operate on a circle wide basis all across the country. What is your broad sense in terms of revenues that you expect for the current year? What is the increase that you have set as a target?

A: In the month of March every year every PSU signs a memorandum of understanding (MoU) which basically outlines different parameters including revenue targets. I think Rs 737,000 crore is the revenue target given to us for this financial year.

Q: And you think, you are on track to achieve that?

A: Yes, we will make all possible efforts. We will leave no stone unturned to achieve that.

Q: You talked about the workforce and while there are some people who would say that it is a big liability, possibly other options also to look at the rationalizing the work that you are employing when it comes to your workforce and the headcount?

A: We have a large workforce so we have a large network as well. We are the only pan India operator in true sense. I can say that so most of my staff traditionally was deployed in landline business, which is in any case decreasing but we have found ways and means to redeploy our staff to the extent possible wherever the staff was of the right aptitude, right attitude and right age profile. We have redeployed them in our sales and distribution activities. Also we have large number of customer service centres which we have revitalised and we have tried to use our staff in those customer service centres but the age profile of my workforce is about more than 50 so therefore there is a limit to which you can redeploy and retrain.

Q: Can you ever offer a Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS). Is that part of your plans at this stage?

A: Why not? Many companies are considering VRS and so BSNL is also not averse to the idea of VRS per se but there are no concrete plans as yet though we would definitely like to work out some plausible plan which is acceptable to our employee. Also at this moment of time one of the biggest challenge in bringing any VRS scheme would be finances.

Q: Coming back to the network aspect and I am asking you to draw upon your previous experience as a technocrat who has successfully managed other public sector companies. This is to do with network expansion. You mentioned technology obsolesce and the need to constantly upgrade networks. BSNL did manage to come into the mobile field although a little delayed because of policy decision and grabbed quite a bit of market share. Since then we have seen delay in order execution for whatever reasons leading to a situation where your traditional centres of power in terms of your ability to offer mobile services even there you are under attack from private operators. How do you plan to arrest that because that is an issue which is entirely in your hand and is not linked to all the other external problems that a company like you faces?

A: If you say that that�s entirely in our hand that is procurement. I would dare to differ with you here. A company which has not been able to procure any GSM equipment from October 2007 till date, how do you expect that company to survive? You are aware that the year 2007 which I am referring to that was the last when BSNL could successfully procure GSM equipment but that is end of it. Since October 2007 till date we have not been able to procure any GSM equipment.

Q: So have your predecessors -the systems and the powers that preceeded responsible for choking Bharat Sanchar�s growth?

A: 2007 to 2011 have been the most happening years in telecom history of the country. So therefore we have not just lost four years we have lost an era. These four years have been the years where you are reporting that every month we were adding 5 million, then 7 million then 11 million and finally 15 million lines. So, like India, in good old days we missed industrial revolution, we have really missed that mobile revolution, because of our inability to procure the equipment.

Q: What do you plan to do for it, because you are somebody who has experience of not just catering to India in your previous job, you have actually catered to dozens of countries across the world?

A: I have taken a decision immediately after joining that we shall be following in future e-tendering with reverse auction. Therefore this will bring transparency in the procurement system.

Q: This will be applied to all orders?

A: All orders.

Q: What is the plan? Is it 2 million lines, because there were talks several months before you took over of a flash tender. Even that flash tender has not happened.

A: Central vigilance commission in a very special case gave this relaxation, I will say, to BSNL to go for a snap tender for at least procuring 5.5 million lines. But unfortunately for BSNL and for every stakeholder that didn�t succeed even. So therefore now we are planning to go for an approximately 15 million GSM lines tender, the work is in very advance stage and I hope that very soon this tender may be floated.

Q: Will this be a snap tender or a conventional tender?

A: No, it would be a normal tender through e-tendering process. But then there would be one difference in this again from conventional tender. Apart from the process which will be followed, it would be based on a kind of vendor financing model.

Q: I am not going to ask you who your vendors will be because clearly your tender is going to come out. At least tell us will you follow the same old model of dividing it among several vendors because there has also been a criticism in the past about dividing it on east-west north-south basis. Why does it have to cater to the whole world and ensure employment in all regions of the globe? Why doesn�t it do a deal with one particular company and derive the lowest cost?

A: Again lowest cost will derive anywhere because it will be e-tendering through your auction so therefore lowest will be derived anywhere. Traditionally BSNL has done that way. So therefore you will find that we have incumbent vendors in every zone and because for the regions of inter operability and ease coordination which results into less execution time and less cost per se. This zonal system will this time also will have to be followed.

Q: Why not opt for the managed services model?

A: This perhaps, this procurement is going to be last procurement on the conventional model. We will work sincerely to move from this upfront payment model which also has devised a method of vendor financing. We are going to floor this tender on vendor financing method where BSNL doesn�t have to pay upfront. But then next procurement on our next expansions network would be in all probability on this managed capacity, managed services model.

Q: Let us now ask you one question on vendor financing. In terms of the broad outlook that you have towards this what is the plan? Will you put up upfront 20-30% and get the rest as vendor financing, what is the broad contour of this plan?

A: Actually those clause are being worked out, we have taken assistance of some financial consultant as well as top law firm of the country to vent out those clauses. Right now, they are too premature for me to say about that but the idea here is that BSNL would not be required to pay the money upfront. We will be paying it over a period of time.

Q: Who will run this e-tendering platform for you?

A: Perhaps they would go with TCIL. I am not sure about that is another point which we will look into.

Q: Will there be any reservation for ITI Limited?

A: There are certain instructions issued by the government about some reservation quota to ITI from BSNL, so we shall follow those instructions.

Q: Two burning issues and this is a legacy that you have inherited, this is to do with the 3G network that you setup as well as the broadband wireless access platform that you have got, the spectrum won; you already borrowed quite a bit to pay the license fee, the spectrum fee that were derived through an e-auction. The question in some peoples� mind is is Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited capable of leveraging this, making both of these spectrums that it has acquired at such high cost, revenue generating? And if it had such a lead in having the network and the spectrum already available, why is there not such a dynamic impact that is visible in terms of availability?

A: I will answer that but first a correction. We did not borrow for paying spectrum fee. We paid it upfront from our own internal accruals and the sum was mindboggling- Rs 18,000 crore. So if 18,000 crore goes out from a company, then you can imagine its impact. Precisely BSNL is facing that impact and that too very dearly.

Coming to this issue we have rolled out 3G network in largest number of cities compared to any other operator and we have devised now ways to go very aggressively utilise 3G services, especially data cards. You are aware that in broadband BSNL is the market leader and we wish not only to remain there; we wish to aggressively go in that line because that is one of good revenue streams for BSNL.

We are having a capability of providing broadband services across multiple technology platforms. We have landline, through that we are giving DSL. And mind you, the experience of broadband on landline cannot be compared with wireless. So our customers are delighted. Then we have got fibre to the home technology already deployed in several cities and the work is going on progressively where again we are in a position to offer triple play services to a customer in his home wireless video data on a single fibre. Then we have wireless media, wireless CDMA, our e-video cards are very popular, we are going to revitalize and reactivate that stream of revenue. We have deployed e-video system in almost all the major cities of the country already and we have procured sufficient number of data cards, we have rationalized the tariff. Last but not the least is Broadband Wireless Access (BWA), what you are talking about WiMax. Yes, BSNL experimented with a franchise model in a couple of circles, license service area what we call LSA that somehow is not taken off so far. We will find a way for that also, but then as our obligation to the rural India we are the only one who has ruled out WiMax services for connecting common service centers in the rural areas.

Q: Given the experience with WiMax world wide and the fact that it has not taken off, do you personally and because your experience with multiple technologies in such a long career, do you think that is something that BSNL will have to stay with or will ultimately converge towards LTE?

A: We have a spectrum which is okay for WiMax as well as for LTE TD. Now LTE TD trials are going on in different parts of the world. But very successful commercial deployment, I mean mature commercial deployment is yet to take place. Therefore we will have to also keep in mind the timeframe. Our meter is on, we have already taken the spectrum and we have paid the charges. So therefore I have constituted a committee in BSNL to go into the whole issue, I mean technology issue and they will come up with a report by the end of this month. Then we will be able to take a decision as to what is the way forward for this.

But coming to broadband, broadband we are looking into a very interesting opportunity for BSNL because of our capability of delivering broadband to you, to a customer and multiple technology forms. We are also thinking of bundling our 3G data cards with our landline broadband. So we say that while you are at home you are using BSNL�s Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) broadband, when you go out you are on 3G and you get one common bill for this. What comes to my mind and would like your audience to know is that we want to create a situation that we want to tell our customers, our people at large that whenever you think of broadband think of BSNL.

So coming to this revenue stream this year we are pitching for large share of revenue, continued market leadership in broadband. Then hopefully by inducting more GSM equipment in the network we can acquire not only new customers, but also as you know mobile number portability is on so we want to reduce the churn. As it is, couple of circles of BSNL like Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, Kerala, our port out to port in ratio is in our favour. That means more customers are coming to us.

I am very sure that with induction of this new equipment and also by improved performance, for which we are putting too much of emphasis on our circle heads and every functional level, we hope that we will be able to not only able to retain the customers in our northern and western circles where the churn is much higher, but also to acquire new customers.

Q: By when do you expect to deploy these 15 million lines? What is the timeframe that you have in mind?

A: We shall be able to procure this equipment as soon as possible. But in any case I don�t this it would take less than three to four months.

Q: How much would it entail in terms of broadly the financial outgo?

A: As I said there will be no financial outgo.

Q: When people talk of Bharat Sanchar they also remember your sister company Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited and my question is not on MTNL�s performance but to get your views on a proposal that was officially discussed and has been discussed since several years and this is about a merger with MTNL. In your capacity as the chairman and managing director and also in your capacity as someone who has observed and operated in the Indian telecom sector for many years, would you favor any sort of alignment, synergy, merger with MTNL?

A: Yes, alignment and synergy any day. We have already started working on that. Coming to merger per se, there are legal and financial issues which the government will have to resolve. Some HR issues are also there, for example salaries of highly structure companies are different. The MTNL is listed, not only on BSE but also on NYSE, so those issues will have to be tackled. Once the issues are successfully tackled by the government, then the merger makes sense, because there are a lot of synergies and the main advantage would be that government will have a company which will have pan India presence.

Q: What is the information that you can to share with us on the Sam Pitroda Committee Report? Are we going to see any implementation of the proposals and in your personal capacity would you agree with any of the proposals that we have made?

A: No, I have seen that report, it is an excellent report, puts in a very concise and clear manner as to what should be done with BSNL to bring it back to its past glory. So there are many suggestions, many of whom can be implemented by BSNL itself that we have already taken a step to implement. But there are couple of recommendations which fall in the purview of government. So government would be deciding that in due course of time.

For example one of the recommendations of that committee is that BSNL should move to the managed capacity and managed services model, which is excellent. So, we would be definitely taking the steps ourselves. Then it has also mentioned about sharing up the telecom resources. So we already have started sharing our tower with private operators.

Q: There was some talk of the fact that you will hive off the tower assets into a separate company and then possibly look at leveraging it?

A: No, actually that is next step. The first step in any case is whatever tower resources we are having where the slots we can spare, we should immediately start sharing with other operators. So that work has already commenced and we have rather revitalized it and we are looking at it as a new source of revenue under the new business vertical, the NB vertical.

But hiving off into a separate entity may not exactly be essential, though it is desirable, but it may not be essential. Once our tower sharing business picks up, then at a suitable point of time a call can be taken as to whether we carve out a separate fully owned subsidiary to begin with. Thereafter, seeing the market conditions, we may try to induct some partner also can bring cash and then we can expand the tower business. But then as I see today there are already a good number of tower companies in the market. We are yet to see their mature business model.

Q: Final question, what is the future going to be? Give us a picture of how Bharat Sanchar will look towards the end of your tenure.

A: BSNL is an anchor company, it is operating in a strategic sector, it is wholly owned by the government. All these factors definitely give a very special status to BSNL. Therefore a good health of BSNL is not only in interest of BSNL itself, but it is in larger interest of country as well. There are multiple stakeholders apart from the government�s who are our owner, my own employees and officers- they are the stakeholders which are very clearly visible. But what is not visible that not less than 700-800 if not more companies in India whom we call vendors who are our partners in our success or failure, their stake, their survival depends upon survival of BSNL.

Therefore, at any cost, BSNL must survive. BSNL must be brought back to a profit making organization, thriving vibrant organization. And I am pretty sure that the steps which we have initiated and which we shall be initiating in coming years with the active support of government, my own ministry, we shall definitely be able to achieve that.

BSNL NEWS:::::NEW DELHI: Telecom PSU BSNL is considering hiving off its telecom tower infrastructure into a separate company and will float a tender this week for appointment of a consultant to suggest the business roadmap.

"We are exploring opportunity to bring our tower business under separate company for optimum utilisation. In this regard, BSNL will issue expression of interest this week to appoint consultant that will suggest us the roadmap," BSNL Chairman and Managing Director R K Upadhyay told PTI.

He added that company has around 70,000 towers and it will explore various business models that can realise value of its infrastructure.

The plan to hive off BSNL tower business into a separate entity is in line with recommendation made by Sam Pitroda Committee for revamping business of the PSU whose profit started declining from Rs 10,183 crore in 2004-05 before showing a loss in 2009-10.

The Committee has suggested to form separate "subsidiary company for tower related infrastructure to aggressively market to other public and private sector customers and unlock whole/substantial potential value through strategic stake sale, mergers and acquisition or separate IPO (Initial Public Offer)."

"Mobile telephony started in 1996. BSNL got permit after five years in 2001 to start it. Within a year, BSNL acquired top position. Through reforms, we are striving to regain our leadership position," Upadhyay said. (Courtesy E,T)

12-08-2012:- BSNL NEWS

NEW DELHI: State-run BSNL is planning to invest around Rs 400 crore to transform its landline services that will bring a host of modern facilities including video calling and free call transfer from mobile phones, by end of this financial year. "We have started process of converting all our exchanges in to NGN (Next Generation Network) exchanges. This will bring to landlines all facilities that are currently available on mobile phones like video calling, call transfer, directory among others," BSNL Chairman and Managing Director R K Upadhyay said.

The BSNL CMD said there are total of 37,639 exchanges out of which 30,008 exchanges are based on technology from C-DoT and rest from imported technology. "Conversion of C-DoT exchanges in to NGN exchange will require very less amount. Those based on imported technology will involve cost for which we have floated tender. We estimate it will cost between Rs 300-400 crore," he said.

The NGN technology will bring modern services to customers like call transfer facility from a mobile phone to the landline when the user is at his/her home, Upadhyay said. "At present, call transfers from mobile to another mobile phone is charged but we will provide call transfer from mobile to landline free of cost when the person is inside his home," he said.

BSNL will also push for adoption of NGN-based fixed line connection among corporate customers as these phones can be converted in to a small exchange for transferring calls within an organisation via the extension number route for employees. "These are some of the initial services that will be available on phone. We will provide a host of value-added services on a single phone as we proceed. We expect to complete this project by end of this fiscal," Upadhyay said.

BSNL commands a 69 per cent market share in wireline segment. According to TRAI data, the wireline subscriber base declined from 31.53 million at the end of May, 2012 to 31.43 million at the end of June, 2012. At the end of June, BSNL had over 21.7 million wireline subscribers compared to 98.27 million mobile phone subscribers.

The BSNL CMD said the new-generation fixedline phones will reduce operational and maintenance costs for the company. "These services can be easily maintained. Landline phones have declined after advent of mobile phones but as we move ahead, the demand for these connections is bound to grow due to demand in broadband services. A single phone can be made instrument of empowerment," he said. (Courtesy E.T)

06-3-2012:- NEW DELHI: Telecom regulator Trai has recommended a subsidy of Rs 600 crore to state-run BSNL, a move that will help the cash-strapped company in maintaining rural wireline connections installed before April 1, 2002. The Department of Telecom ( DoT) had sought Trai's recommendations regarding continuation of support from Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF) towards the rural direct exchange lines (DELs) on expiry of Rs 2,000 crore per year subsidy on July 17, 2011.

"Keeping in view the urgency of matter, considering that it would take some more time to issue a consultation paper and that time would also be taken in consultation process, the Authority recommends that a subsidy of Rs 600 crore purely as an ad hoc measure may be given to BSNL," Trai said in a statement. The Regulator said that at this stage it may not be easy for the government to obtain any additional funds for this purpose through the normal budgetary process and hence it recommended that a subsidy grant of Rs 600 crore may be made from USOF to BSNL.

However, Trai added that the grant and the source (USOF) are "purely ad hoc" arrangement and final recommendations would be made after due consultation. All mobile phone companies share part of their annual revenues towards USOF.

BSNL, as per Trai recommendations, had received Rs 2,000 crore from USOF for a period of three years from July 18, 2008 to July 17, 2011 on phasing out of Access Deficit Charge ( ADC) for sustaining its loss-making landline business across rural India. Following the expiration date, BSNL had sought further financial support of Rs 2,580 crore per year from USOF for meeting the deficit arising out of "commercially non-remunerative" rural wireline services for DELs installed before April 1, 2002.

The state-run operator was asked to make a presentation before Trai, in which it stated that the exsiting cost of operations on these lines are high in comparison with revenue accruals. "It does not make business sense for BSNL to maintain these high cost rural lines at very high net loss unless it is financially compensated by the government," BSNL had said. Adding that these lines are key to broadband adoption in rural areas, the state-run firm sought continued financial support.

05-3-2012:- Hyderabad: Government-run telecom major Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) will conduct its reconnection mela across Andhra Pradesh for 15 days from March 5.

Customers will be offered an opportunity to pay outstanding dues in easy instalments during the mela, said BSNL (AP Telecom Circle) Chief General Manager, V Srinivasan.Besides, new landline/mobile/broadband connections and other BSNL products will be available at the mela stalls.As of now, 75,000 landline phones in the state remain disconnected, he said, adding that about 1 lakh connections were restored in the last two similar drives.

BSNL's accumulated dues in the AP Circle are around Rs 270 crore over the last three decades. However, of this, Rs 200 crore were from the last six months alone, he said, saying that competitive market is one of the prime reasons for the difficulty in collections.

BSNL AP Circle will launch the bundling- SIM card- with-tablet scheme within a week, he added.

The DSs ,DPs of all the three associations and lot of other functionaries addressed the gathering..

Through out the programme anchoring by Com M.V.Reddy was an impressive one.

19-1-2012:- United Forum of BSNL Executives’ Associations ( AIBSNLEA, SNEA (I) and AIGETOA) met on 16.01.2012 and decided to show strong resentment to the BSNL Management for the sinister move to recruit 600 Sr DGMs / Jt DGMs just to accommodate indisposed ITS Officers back into BSNL. UF decided to participate in large number for the proposed DHARNA on 20.01.2012 to be organized at CGMT Office, Doorsanchar Bhavan at Hyderabad and at the respective General Manager’s Office in all the other SSAs.

The move to recruit 600 DGMs in E6 level, who are mostly in the age group of 35-45 will permanently seal the prospects of the absorbed executives because the posts thus occupied by this recruitment will not be vacant upto 15-25 years as per this recruitment rules. The present recruitment rules were framed in such a way that only ITS Officers are eligible with minimum qualification of B.Tech ignoring and denying the opportunity to the vast experienced absorbed executives and some are even better qualified than the ITS Officers.

BSNL Management is totally lacking any commitment to the absorbed executives but making all out efforts to safeguard the interest of the unabsorbed, unwilling ITS Officers by even tampering the BSNLMS Recruitment Rules which were framed after lot of deliberations with all the stake holders.[Recruitment should be at E5 and E 9 only]

Standard Pay Scales is the demand of all the Executive Associations from the day BSNL was formed. Even during the implementation of 2nd PRC, the demand was not met by the BSNL Management only on the ground that the pension contribution which BSNL has to pay to DOT on the maximum of the scale will increase the financial burden of BSNL. As the issue is now resolved and orders issued for contribution of Pension on the actual basic, BSNL Management should not have any hesitation, but to implement Standard Pay Scales to the executives.

The move of the BSNL Management is intended to ‘Rehabilitate ITS officers rather than concentrate on the issues concerning the growth of BSNL either by introducing standard procurement policy or introducing a homogeneous management structure belonging to the company. The Recruitment Rules (RRs) have been converted into Rehabilitation Rules only to appease ITS Officers and not for building a Management Structure comprising of dedicated, committed and devoted absorbed executives who have trust on the viability of the company and determination for its revival.

Hence we appeal to all the executives to participate in the DAY LONG DHARNA on 20.01.2012 and make the United Forum call success.

18-1-2012:- All the executives may go through the message of Sri.Rajeev Agraval garu,out going CGMT AP Circle ,which is placed on the AP Intranet.

15-12-11:- Joint Action Committee of Associations/Unions of BSNL Executives & Non-Executives has given call of one day strike on 15th Dec'2011 to strongly protest against the wrong policies of Govt. and BSNL Management which are adversely affecting the viability of BSNL and its employees.

Govt. is disowning its responsibility towards its own company, BSNL by withdrawing its supports which were assured at the time of its formation in Oct'2000.

More than Rs.3000 crores is being charged as license fee and USO charges contrary to NTP-1999. The OPEX charges Rs. 5000 crores payment to BSNL has been denied by DoT. On the basis of TRAI recommendations, ADC to BSNL has been withdrawn but the telecom services in rural areas are being provided on reduced rental. Rs. 18500 crores has been charged from BSNL against 3G & BWA spectrum allocation on the highest bidding rate without giving fare opportunity to BSNL for participating in the bidding process to decide circles on the basis of profit & loss criteria.

BSNL has already surrendered non-stranded BWA spectrum & has demanded refund of Rs. 7000 crores. Govt. decision to impose VRS to 1,00,000 (One lakh) employees can't be accepted without any road map that how it will help BSNL's viability.

BSNL Management is not implementing DoT order dated 03.11.2011 for repatriation of non-optee ITS officers whose deemed deputation ended on 08.11.2011, which is adversely affecting the viability of BSNL. BSNL management is making its best efforts to rehabilitee ITS officers in BSNL by framing illogical RRs. The existing Group-'A' level executives are not being promoted against vacant HAG/SAG/JAG level posts in BSNL.

BSNL Management failed in procurement of GSM/NGN equipments, Cables, telephone instruments, MLLN Modems etc which has also adversely affected the viability of BSNL.

Let us, actively participate in the JAC strike call on 15th Dec'2011 to make its a complete success and to defeat the wrong policies of the Govt. and BSNL Management, which are adversely affecting the viability of BSNL and its employees.

05-11-2011:- ::*********SECRETS OF BOLLY WOOD STARS BEAUTY*********It is commonly believed that senior actors don't use cell phones. An oft-cited example is Aamir Khan, who owned a mobile much later than others, shunning it when knee-deep in work. But times are changing.

Other old-timers are warming to mobiles while they're still reluctant about sharing their numbers. One such example is Bollywood's eternal diva - Rekha. Even her closest friends in the industry don't have her number. Once, we were desperate to get in touch with Madam Re.

Her dear friend 'Hemu' (Hema Malini) advised us to call her on the landline and leave a message along with a number on voicemail. It did work. Rekha's manager Farzana promptly called back without wasting a minute and handed over the phone to her boss. "I too don't have Rekha's number. I always leave behind a message and she calls me back," said Hema with a chuckle.(Courtesy.Times Of India)

Let us make land lines popular.
