Finance Ministry rejects BSNL's Revival Package.

The Union Ministry of Finance rejected the much-anticipated package to revamp the public sector telecommunications company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL). The package was formed by the cabinet subcommittee headed by Minister for Home Affairs Amit Shah. It was rejected by the finance ministry pointing out that no funds can be allocated for the same.
The ministry also directed to submit a new package. The direction came after the then Cabinet Secretary Nripendra Misra completed the procedures to table the package before the cabinet and handed it over to the Ministry of Finance. Later, Nripendra Misra resigned from service.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also was part of the committee which finalised the package. However, it was rejected when it was handed over to the Finance Ministry.
The package gave importance to the voluntary retirement scheme based on the evaluation that there is excess of staff in the company. But the finance ministry made it clear that it cannot grant funds for the scheme.
Another recommendation was to allot fund from the government to provide 4G spectrum for BSNL. However, the ministry opposed this also and suggested that the BSNL should find the funds for the same.

A step in the wrong direction.

A DO letter, sent by the Director (CM) on 03rd September, 2019, addressed to all the CGM’s of the territorial circles, has created a furore in the entire BSNL. The wordings of the letter have undoubtedly deeply hurted the employees. The letter says that, the employees are sleeping while on duty. Further, the letter has also directed to cut one week's salary of the under-performing Heads of SSAs. Certainly, this letter is a step in the wrong direction. The Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL are known for their positive role, in improving the financial condition of the Company. Without any request or direction from the top Management, the Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL, on their own, have organised many movements, like “Customer Delight Year” and “Service With A Smile”, to improve the quality of BSNL's services. Voluntarily, the employees have involved themselves in marketing activities, which have greatly improved BSNL's financial position. However, the actions being taken by the DoT and the Management, have greatly demoralised and demotivated the Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL. Denial of 3rd Pay Revision, threat to roll back the retirement age from 60 to 58, etc., have totally frustrated the employees. Apart from these, the employees are facing adverse working conditions at the field level. At this juncture, threatenings and penal actions by the top Management, will further deteriorate the situation. The earlier top Management used to meet the representatives of the unions and associations frequently, and had productive interactions. However, the present top Management is not keen to do that. BSNLEU demands that, the above mentioned letter of the Director (CM) needs to be withdrawn. The top Management should immediately hold discussions with the unions and associations to ensure ways and means to improve the situation.
