Ministry of Communications & Information Technology
BSNL should connect 1 lakh Gram Panchayats with broadband connectivity at the earliest-Manoj Sinha
The Telecom Minister Shri Manoj Sinha today gave a stern message to BSNL that he will not tolerate any delay
and the Telecom PSU should connect one lakh Gram Panchayats (GPs) through Optical Fibre Cable (OFC) to set
up a network infrastructure to serve the rural masses. He said, all are working with zeal to achieve the target of
connecting 2.5 lakh Gram Panchayats with Broadband Network within stipulated timeframe, which is the vision of
the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for Digital India. Speaking at an award ceremony function of BSNL here,
Shri Sinha said, those who are working with zeal should be rewarded and those should take VRS from where
reports of negative growth is coming on a continuous basis.
The Minister urged the BSNL to find new invention, new research and new technology and to give World Class
products for achieving Prime Minister’s vision of Transforming India through Digital Revolution. He said that there
is need for innovation as India cannot afford to emulate the Developed Economies due to limited resources. He
said, if India will lag in catching up with emerging technologies, the very existence of the country will be at stake.
He exhorted the officials and other stakeholders to “Walk the Talk” and underlined that it is our bounden duty to
digitally empower the huge chunk of population particularly in rural areas who are still deprived of IT revolution.
Shri Sinha asked BSNL officers and employees to set an ambitious target of 15 percent Telecom penetration within
a time frame from the existing 10.4 percent and asked the PSU to any competition head on and compete with
other big Telecom Operators as BSNL is now equipped with new technology, dedicated work force, equipment
and financial resources. He also expressed concern that despite the worldwide trend, the number of land line
connections in India is decreasing every day and BSNL should think seriously about this issue.
He said, unless the BSNL will not improve its service quality, Plan-49 or Plan-II-49 will not succeed to have
connection at Rs 49. BSNL through the above two plans have made call free on Sunday and from 9.00 pm to 7 am
each day and the Telco PSU is also providing Broadband connectivity at cheaper rates. He also asked BSNL to
resolve all the complaints promptly and any reluctance on this front will not be tolerated.
Shri Sinha said that the Country is on the verge of Data Revolution, and if India will lag behind on this front,
history will not forgive us. He said, it is easy to befool through jugglery of data and facts, but ultimately work
should be seen to have been done.
Speaking on the occasion, Secretary, Telecom Shri J.S.Deepak said that it is a matter of pride that since April,
2015, BSNL has come to operating profit it is gaining market share on a regular basis but it should work hard to

become the global giant. Referring to connectivity initiatives in North East, Left Wing Extremist areas, where 2200
towers were installed for better connectivity for the security forces and for the rural masses living in the remotest
areas, Shri Deepak said that in the 2nd phase 2,000 additional towers will be installed in the naxal-hit areas. He
also called for performance audit of the PSU from time to time.
In his address, the CMD of BSNL Shri Anupam Srivastav said that the revenue of BSNL IN 2015-16 was Rs
28,450 crore, which is 4.4 percent more than the revenue in the year 2014-15. He assured the Minister that BSNL
is ready to compete tariff to tariff with any Telecom Operator and also called for collaborative efforts where the
country’s interest is involved.
Shri Srivastav said that due to paucity of instruments and equipment from 2006-2012, BSNL missed the voice bus,
but in the last two years several initiatives were taken and BSNL is ready for any challenge. He informed that in
the last two years 26,000 mobile towers were installed and in this financial year 20,000 additional towers will be
installed.

Today BSNL is in the news for its results to which it has gained after its stupendous effort on all fronts. BSNL declared that it has become as the fifth largest mobile operator in monthly growth rate. In net addition of new customers under BSNL mobile services for June 2016, BSNL beats all the private operators.

Our BSNL, the only PSU in Indian telecom sector which is entirely owned by Government of India. Being a PSU may not give BSNL an edge in this post financial liberalisation era. BSNL mobile services are competing with global players, and still, BSNL made its mark.

Introduced BSNL 10 paise scheme and free mobile roaming across India as best offers for customers. Apart from that, BSNL 3G Internet plans are already ruling the data market with its lowest price for high-speed wireless data.

Recently Public Sector Undertaking introduced BSNL 3G unlimited data plans in prepaid services and unlimited call plan in the post-paid segment. With this new offers, we can also see the top growth in the next coming also continuously.

BSNL was leading in Voice segment till 2003. After some setbacks due to several reasons, BSNL was trembling to retain its position. After energising by the current policies and new management team, BSNL is in the news every day. Now records superb growth at above 13 lakhs new mobile customers for June 2016.

But if we just go a few years back, BSNL had an excellent technology. Best teams selected with toughest screening tests and moreover magnificent infra. It was an admiring by all Indian’s. When somehow with some Jugaad, it happened that, if you went into a BSNL exchange. The superb experience for you to see how the faults located and gigantic racks and fully maintained cabling. With all this BSNL was the topper of the lot in the telecom industry.

Later in mid-2000’s, only one change is, BSNL was unable to upgrade its technology, having other three resources on par. Still, BSNL was about to become the white elephant. In general, if you stop working continuously for about 3 to 4 months from your daily routine. Bringing your commitment back to normal is an enormous task, the same thing happened with BSNL also.

BSNL expansions were not there with the market growth till late 2000’s. With that BSNL has to witness huge subscriber base. Now BSNL has overcome from this situation for the past two years. BSNL is adopting new strategical policies. Adapting to new technological advancements in the data network, driving the employees towards customer orientation.
BSNL Mobile Services Growth
BSNL is again going to obtain number one position among Indian telecom service providers. It supports with the statics of latest survey for the monthly mobile user growth rate. BSNL has achieved a monthly growth rate of 1.48% for a new mobile user base. With which BSNL mobile services is going to increase its share from 8.54% to 8.65% for the month of June-2016.

Along with the new user base under BSNL mobile services, PSU had also got a quite good number of MNP customers.

So let’s share your opinion on the record of top growth on BSNL mobile services.

[02.09.2016]Rs.350/- vs Rs.692/-: What the fight is all about - TUs Deny They Agreed To Centre's Wage Hike.
The sniping between the government and the trade unions on the demands of the workers is getting curiouser and curiouser. Days before the countrywide strike by workers on September 2, the government had announced that it was raising minimum wages of unskilled workers from Rs.246 per day to Rs.350 per day .This was “based on deliberations in the meeting of Minimum Wage Advisory Board held on 29-08-2016“, of which trade unions are also a part, claimed the government. 

The trade unions have alleged that no such proposal was discussed in the board meeting. Kashmir Singh Thakur, member of the board, has written to labour and employment minister Bandaru Dattatreya saying that the “the proposal of Rs.350 per day as minimum wage ... never surfaced in the meeting on that day”. Thakur has claimed that all the workers' representatives at the meeting of the board had, in fact, reiterated the demand for Rs.18,000/- monthly minimum wage (Rs.692 per day), which is one of the key sticking points in the dispute and the cause for widespread support for the impending strike. The central trade unions are upset at this sleight of hand and have called upon the government to issue a “correction“ or a “rejoinder“ on this. 

What is the basis of the two contradictory proposals of minimum wage? While the government has not given any details as to how it arrived at the figure of Rs.350 per day, trade unions say that their proposal is derived from a standard method of calculating the minimum wage accepted by the Indian Labour Conference, which has representatives from the employers and the government, along with workers' representatives. This standard method was also followed by the 7th Pay Commission, which recently released its report on pay fixation of government employees. According to this method, a three-unit worker's family is assumed to consume 2,700 Kcal per day worth of food, apart from various other essentials like cloth, soap, fuel, etc. Prices of commodities are taken from surveys done by the Labour Bureau. Additional expenses like that on children's education and festivals are added on as 25% of other expenses, following a Supreme Court order in 1992. The 7th Pay Commission crunched through all the numbers and came up with Rs.18,000 per month (Rs.692 per day) as the “minimum need-based wage” for unskilled employees. The trade unions are demanding the same for unskilled workers. Since the government's proposal of Rs.350 per day is nearly half of what is demanded by the workers, the impasse continues.

[31.08.2016]Strike decision stands. Arun Jaitley’s deceptive and misleading statement and appeal rejected by the Central Trade Unions.
The government, instead of inviting the Central Trade Unions which have issued the strike notice for talks, has invited only the RSS affiliated BMS, for talks. It is noteworthy that the BMS has not issued any strike notice. This attitude of the government is condemnable. Yesterday, Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister, has issued a statement, announcing certain concessions and has appealed to the trade unions to withdraw the strike. All the Central Trade Unions, except BMS, have rejected this appeal. The CTUs have reiterated that General Strike would be held on 2nd September, 2016. BSNLEU calls on the employees not to get confused by the deceptive and misleading statement of the Finance Minister and to massively participate in the General Strike.

[31.08.2016]Central trade unions on Tuesday rejected the government's announcements on hike in minimum wages and payment of bonus as “mockery and deception” and decided to go ahead with Friday's nationwide strike.
In a statement, the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) termed finance minister Arun Jaitley's statement that the government had accepted the recommendations of the minimum wage advisory committee as “totally untrue”. “The minimum wage committee met on August 30, 2016, and ended inconclusive while all the workers' representatives reiterated their demand of Rs.18,000/-. Such misstatement by the government is a deliberate ploy to mislead and confuse the workers before the strike”, it said. The RSS-affiliated Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), however, lauded the government's announcements and decided to abstain from the general strike on September 2. AITUC general secretary Gurudas Dasgupta, “The labour minister sent us an email requesting us not to go on strike. It proves how the government is not interested in talking to the trade unions. It (the government) is only interested in talking to BMS.”

[27.08.2016]March ahead towards 2nd September General Strike.
Hardly one week is left for the 2nd September General Strike. The decision to go on one day General Strike on 2nd September, 2016, was taken by the entire Central Trade Unions, except BMS, on 30.03.2016. So far the government has not called the Central Trade Unions for any talks. This non-responsive and arrogant attitude of the government is condemnable. At the same time, the Group of Ministers, headed by Finance Minister, Arun Jaitly, has held discussions with the BMS, the non-striking union. So far, two rounds of discussions are held on 16th and 24th August, 2016, on the 12 point charter of demands of the Central Trade Unions. BSNLEU strongly condemns this attitude of the government. BSNLEU demands that the government should hold talks with the Central Trade Unions which have given notice for the 2nd September General Strike. We have to be cautious about this. In the last minute, the government may try to confuse the workers, with some false announcements, to break the strike. Circle and District Unions are directed to take all out efforts to make the strike a historic success.
