The Telecom Commission has decided to form an internal committee to study the report of the Sam Pitroda Committee’s report. This committee will be headed by Shri S.C.Misra, Member (Services) of the Telecom Commission. It may be recollected that the Sam Pitroda Committee recommended cancellation of BSNL’s 93 million line tender. The BSNL Board immediately acted on this recommendation and has already cancelled the tender. This cancellation has aggravated BSNL’s capacity crunch and has done irreparable damage to BSNL. The Pitroda Committee has also recommended 30% sale of BSNL’s shares to a strategic partner as well as retrenchment of one lakh employees through VRS. Thus, it is needless to say that the Pitroda Committee’s recommendations should be thrown away lock stock and barrel. The JAC will closely monitor the developments. If necessary we will stand as one man to defeat the recommendations of the Pitroda Committee’s recommendations.
