Revenue collections of telecom companies fall further, as a result of which government loses income - says TRAI report.

As a result of the ongoing "tariff war", triggered by Reliance Jio's predatory pricing, the revenue collections of telecom companies have fallen further. According to the TRAI report, the Adjusted Gross  Revenue (AGR), earned by the telecom companies has dropped over 10 per cent, i.e., to Rs.1,44,446 crore during 2018 from Rs.1,60,814 crore in 2017. AGR is the revenue collected by telecom companies from sale of telecom services. Spectrum Usage Charges and Licence Fee, payable to the government, are being calculated on the basis of AGR. Since the AGR of telecom companies has fallen, the Spectrum Usage Charges and Licence Fee, received by the government, has also fallen. Spectrum usage charges (SUC) has fallen by 17.74 per cent to Rs.4,186 crore in 2018, while licence fee collections has fallen by 10.2 per cent to Rs 11,641 crore.

BSNL Management proposes to call a meeting of all unions and associations, to discuss developmental issues.

On 23rd September, 2019, the General Secretary and the Deputy General Secretary of BSNLEU met Shri P.K.Purwar, CMD BSNL, and suggested that the Management should immediately hold a meeting with all the unions and associations, to discuss the developmental activities. BSNLEU has also suggested that all the unions and associations functioning in BSNL should be invited for that meeting.  This suggestion was given in view of the fact that the financial condition of the Company is deteriorating fast and also the representatives of the employees are totally kept in the dark with regards to the steps being taken by the Management, to improve the financial position of the Company. The CMD BSNL was very positive to the suggestion given by BSNLEU and assured to hold such a meeting promptly. Now, BSNLEU has come to know from the SR Branch of the Corporate Office that, steps are being taken by the Management to hold the meeting in the first week of October.

BSNLEU salutes the coal workers for their historic total strike.

On 24th September 2019, the coal workers  have gone on strike against the decision of the Modi government, to allow 100% FDI through the automatic route, in extraction and sale of coal. The BJP government has allowed 100% FDI in coal mining through the automatic route. According to this, the foreign companies can not only extract coal from our coal mines but also sell them at market prices, including exporting it. The government allowed these profits to be siphoned off to their countries. By going on a total strike against this, the coal workers have once again proved that it is they, as part of the working class, who are really determined to protect the interests of the nation. BSNLEU salutes the coal workers.

General Secretary and Dy.General Secretary meet the CMD BSNL.

Com.P.Abhimanyu,GS and Com.Swapan Chakraborty,Dy.GS met Shri P.K.Purwar, CMD BSNL today and discussed the following issues:-

 

At the outset, the CMD BSNL congratulated BSNLEU for once again getting elected as the number one union in the recently held 8th Membership Verification. The GS and the Dy.GS thanked the CMD BSNL.

 

Harassment of 850 ST officials in Maharashtra circle.

BSNLEU has already taken up this issue. 850 ST officials, who have already completed 25/30 years of service, are being harassed by the Maharashtra circle administration. Based on a baseless complaint given by someone, the circle administration has told all these 850 ST officials, to appear before the Scrutiny Committee and obtain fresh cast certificates. According to the DoP&T rule, it is the duty of the Management to verify the genuineness of the caste certificate, with the state government officials. BSNLEU has already written a detailed letter to the CMD BSNL in this regard. Today, this issue was discussed prominently with the CMD BSNL once again. The CMD BSNL is fully convinced by our arguments. He called the the Director(HR) and told him to give necessary instruction to the Maharashtra circle administration, to follow the DoP&T order. The CMD BSNL categorically told that, the caste certificates should be verified only by the Management and that the ST officials should not be pressurised to obtain fresh caste certificates or appear before the Scrutiny Committee. BSNLEU heartily thanks the CMD BSNL for taking the correct stand on this issue.

 

Calling an all unions and associations meeting to discuss about BSNL’s financial condition.

The GS and the Dy GS requested the CMD BSNL to convene an all unions and associations meeting immediately, to discuss about the ways and means to improve the financial condition of the Company. They pointed out that such meetings were held earlier and that the practice should continue to ensure effective coordination between the Management and the employees. The CMD BSNL willingly accepted the proposal and assured to hold the meeting at the earliest.

 

Timely payment of Salary, for the month of September.

The GS and the Dy.GS requested the CMD BSNL to ensure timely payment of the salary for the month of September, since important festivals such as Pooja, Dussehra and Deepavali are falling in the month of October. The CMD BSNL told that the Company is under compulsion to make payment of outstanding electricity bills which come to around Rs.500 crore.

मेम्बरशिप वेरिफिकेशन कैंपेन को लेकर BSNLEU ने महासचिव, NFTE को पत्र लिखा...

8वें मेम्बरशिप वेरिफिकेशन के लिए BSNLEU ने बेहद सैद्धांतिक तरीके से अभियान चलाया। पुणे एक्सटेंडेड सीईसी में लिए गए निर्णय अनुसार, BSNLEU लीडर्स ने प्रचार अभियान का उपयोग सरकार की पब्लिक सेक्टर और BSNL विरोधी नीतियों का पर्दाफाश करने के लिए किया। सम्पूर्ण अभियान का लक्ष्य कर्मचारियों में व्याप्त निराशा को दूर करने और उनमें विश्वास निर्मित करना था। इस कार्य को पूर्ण करने में BSNLEU काफी हद तक कामयाब भी रही है। किन्तु, इस अभियान के दौरान BSNLEU पर काफी कीचड़ उछाला गया है। इसी वजह से, BSNLEU के महासचिव ने NFTE महासचिव के साथ इस मुद्दे को लिया है।

BSNLEU writes to the General Secretary, NFTE, on the Membership Verification campaign

BSNLEU has conducted a principled campaign for the 8th Membership Verification. As per the decision taken in the Pune Extended CEC meeting, leaders of BSNLEU utilized the campaign to expose the anti- public sector / anti – BSNL policies of the government. The whole campaign of BSNL was aimed at removing the frustration of the employees and to create confidence among them. To a great extent, BSNLEU has succeeded in fulfilling this task. However, during this campaign, mudslinging has been done against BSNLEU. Hence, General Secretary, BSNLEU, has taken up this issue with the General Secretary, NFTE.

BSNL  के रिवाइवल के लिए पैसा नही है - किंतु बड़े कॉर्पोरेट्स का बोझ कम करने के लिए सरकार 1.45 लाख करोड़ खर्च कर सकती है...

हम यह जानते हैं कि वित्त मंत्रालय द्वारा BSNL के रिवाइवल का प्रस्ताव निरस्त किया जा चुका है। सरकार ने अपने वित्तीय संकट का हवाला देते हुए BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम देने से भी इंकार कर दिया है। किन्तु, इसी सरकार ने बड़े कॉर्पोरेट्स को टैक्स में लगभग रु 1.45 लाख करोड़ की बड़ी छूट प्रदान की है। आज, वित्त मंत्री श्रीमती निर्मला सीतारमण द्वारा की गई घोषणा के अनुसार, कॉर्पोरेट टैक्स 30% से घटा कर 22% कर दिया गया है। 01.10.2019 पश्चात शुरू हुई कंपनीज के लिए कॉर्पोरेट टैक्स केवल 15% रहेगा। बड़े कॉर्पोरेट्स को टैक्स में दी गई इस छूट की वजह से सरकार के राजस्व संग्रहण में रु 1.45 लाख की कमी आएगी।

No money for BSNL 's revival - But, government can spend Rs. 1.45 lakh crores to reduce the burden of big corporates.

We know that the Finance Ministry has already rejected the proposals for BSNL' s revival. It has refused to allot 4G spectrum to BSNL, citing the financial crisis being faced by the government. However, the same government has given a huge tax concession to the big corporates to the tune of Rs. 1.45 lakh crores. According to the announcement made by Ms. Nirmala Sitaraman, Finance Minister today, Corporate Tax is reduced from 30% to 22%. In case of companies started after 01-10-2019, the Corporate Tax will be only 15%. Government' revenue collection will go down by Rs.1.45 lakh crores due to this tax concession given to the big corporates.
