How Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL, justifies the transfer of BSNL's lands at throw-away price to the SPV?

Today’s ET Telecom has carried a write up about the press statement issued by BSNLEU, wherein the union has alleged that BSNL’s lands are being transferred to the SPV, at throw-away price. Responding to the report, Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL has refuted the allegation of the Union. He has stated that, "such allegations are baseless and incorrect since the valuation has been done on indicative basis for the purpose of preparation of cabinet note.


In it's press release, BSNLEU has clearly pointed out that, in the year 2013 itself, the Kerala government had paid Rs.15 lakh per cent, for buying land from BSNL's RTTC, at Thiruvananthapuram. Whereas, after 9 long years, the BSNL Management has assessed the price of 1 cent land of RTTC,Thiruvananthapuram at Rs.10 lakh. It is upto Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL, to justify how a land sold at Rs.15 lakh per cent in 2013 can be valued at Rs.10 lakh per cent in 2019.

श्री पी के पुरवार, CMD BSNL, BSNL की जमीनों को बेहद न्यूनतम दरों पर SPV को स्थानांतरित करने को किस तरह उचित बता रहे हैं ?....
आज के ET टेलीकॉम ने BSNLEU द्वारा प्रेषित प्रेस विज्ञप्ति के संबंध में, जिसमें यूनियन द्वारा BSNL की जमीनों को बेहद न्यूनतम दरों पर SPV को स्थानांतरित करने का आरोप लगाया लगाया गया है, पर एक लेख प्रकाशित किया है। इस पर प्रतिक्रिया देते हुए श्री पी के पुरवार, CMD BSNL ने यूनियन के आरोपों का खंडन किया है। उन्होंने कहा है कि "इस तरह के आरोप निराधार और गलत है क्योंकि कैबिनेट नोट बनाने के लिए जमीनों का मूल्यांकन सांकेतिक आधार पर किया गया है।"

अपनी प्रेस विज्ञप्ति में BSNLEU ने स्पष्ट रूप से उल्लेखित किया है कि  वर्ष 2013 में ही केरल सरकार द्वारा तिरुअनंतपुरम में स्थित BSNL RTTC की जमीन खरीदने के लिए रु 15 लाख प्रति सेंट की दर से भुगतान किया गया था। जबकि, 9 वर्ष के अंतराल के पश्चात, BSNL मैनेजमेंट ने RTTC तिरुअनंतपुरम की 1 सेंट जमीन का मूल्य रु 10 लाख आंका है। अब यह श्री पी के पुरवार, CMD BSNL पर निर्भर करता है कि वें 2013 में रु 15 लाख प्रति सेंट की दर से बेची गई जमीन का मूल्यांकन 2019 में रु 10 लाख प्रति सेंट किया जा सकता है, इसे कैसे उचित साबित करेंगे।

BSNLEU यह जान कर बेहद विचलित है कि रिवाइवल पैकेज के नाम पर BSNL के बेशकीमती लैंड पार्सल्स स्पेशल परपज वेहिकल (SPV) को स्थान्तरित  किए जा रहे हैं। इसके बदले में ये लैंड पार्सल्स SPV द्वारा नाममात्र मूल्य पर कॉर्पोरेट उद्यमियों को सौंप दिए जाएंगे। BSNLEU के अनुसार यह एक बहुत बड़ा जमीन घोटाला है। BSNLEU ने BSNL में इस   घोटाले को रोकने के लिए शीघ्र हस्तक्षेप की मांग करते हुए सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम को लिखा है।

A big land scam in the offing in BSNL.

The Department of Telecommunications is moving a Cabinet Note for the Revival of BSNL. One of the components envisaged in the Revival Package is to make BSNL a debt-free Company, through transfer of BSNL’s bank loans to a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV). Identified land parcels of BSNL will also be transferred to the SPV, to be sold by the latter, for the repayment of the loans. BSNL Management has already finalised a list of 63 land parcels, located in major cities and towns, to be transferred to the SPV. In this process BSNL has also fixed the value for these land parcels.

 

It is shocking to know that these land parcels are grossly undervalued. In the name of monetisation of lands, for the purpose of making BSNL a debt-free Company, BSNL’s lands are being transferred to the SPV at a “throw-away price”. It must be noted that BSNL’s vacant land parcels are mostly situated in the prime locations of India’s metro cities, as well as in other big towns. According to our information, the market value of these land parcels is very high. However, in the name of book value, these land parcels are going to be transferred to the SPV at dirt cheap price.

BSNL में बहुत बड़े जमीन घोटाले की संभावना.

डिपार्टमेंट ऑफ टेलीकम्युनिकेशन्स द्वारा BSNL के रिवाइवल के लिए एक कैबिनेट नोट प्रस्तुत किया जा रहा है। रिवाइवल पैकेज में उल्लेखित एक घटक (component) यह भी है कि BSNL को ऋण मुक्त कंपनी बनाने के लिए BSNL के बैंक ऋण को स्पेशल परपज वेहिकल (SPV) को स्थान्तरित कर दिया जाए। BSNL के चिन्हित (identified) लैंड पार्सल्स भी SPV को स्थानान्तरित किए जाएंगे, जिसे ऋण के पुनर्भुगतान हेतु SPV द्वारा बेच दिया जाएगा। SPV को स्थानांतरित किए जाने वाले, प्रमुख शहरों और टाऊन्स में स्थित, ऐसे 63 लैंड पार्सल्स की सूची को BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा अंतिम रूप  दे दिया गया है। इस प्रक्रिया के तहत BSNL ने इन लैंड पार्सल्स का मूल्य निर्धारण भी कर दिया है।


यह आश्चर्यजनक है कि इन लैंड पार्सल्स का बेहद कम मूल्यांकन किया गया है। BSNL को ऋण मुक्त कंपनी बनाने के लिए लैंड मोनेटाइजेशन (मुद्रीकरण) के नाम पर BSNL की जमीन "नाम मात्र दरों" पर SPV को स्थानांतरित की जा रही है। ज्ञातव्य है कि BSNL की रिक्त लैंड पार्सल्स (जमीन) अधिकांशतः देश के मेट्रो सिटीज के साथ ही अन्य बड़े शहरों में प्रमुख लोकेशन्स पर स्थित है। हमारी जानकारी के अनुसार इन लैंड पार्सल्स का बाजार मूल्य काफी ज्यादा है। किंतु बुक वैल्यू के नाम पर इन लैंड पार्सल्स को औने पौने दामों पर SPV को स्थानांतरित किया जा रहा है।
