Take early steps for the revival of BSNL - The Hindu Business Line article demands.

The Hindu Business Line has published an article today, demanding the government to take immediate steps for the revival of BSNL. One or two points raised in this article are not agreeable to us. However, the article has demanded that BSNL should remain as a strong PSU, to counter the tariff manipulations by the private operators. The write-up has criticised many decisions taken by the government, which have weakened BSNL. It has demanded that BSNL should be freed from the tendering process, for effectively competing with the private companies. The article has also underscored the need for a strong BSNL, which is very much required to cater the needs of the rural and far-flung areas. Further, it has also emphasised the need for BSNL to remain as a strong government owned Company, at a time when cyber crimes and data espionage are feared. Will the Narendra Modi government open it’s eyes ?

Diesel price is increased to a record level.

Diesel price is increased to a record high in our country. The reason cited is, the increase in the price of crude oil in the international market. Diesel price in Delhi presently is Rs.64.58 per litre and the price of petrol is Rs.73.73 per litre. The price of crude oil in the international market is only $70 per barrel at present. It may be recollected that crude oil was sold at $100 per barrel some years ago. Even in those days diesel price was not so high in India. The real fact of the matter is that, government of India is minting money, by raising taxes on petrol and diesel, citing the slight price rise of crude oil in the international market. This is nothing but looting the working masses of this country, for showering benefits to the corporates.

Non-payment of GPF advance - BSNLEU draws the attention of Director (HR).

It is reported from many circles, including Gujarat, Haryana and Punjab that employees are not getting GPF payment.

The Director (HR) has assured BSNLEU that needful action would be taken.

Media reports on allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL.

As has already been reported, the DoT has already prepared a Cabinet Note, for the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, and has sent it for Inter-ministerial consultation. Under these circumstances, some media has reported that the Niti Aayog has objected to the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL. This news is being extensively circulated in the social media. If this news is correct, the AUAB will definitely take the necessary steps for getting 4G spectrum to BSNL. Comrades are requested not to become panicky.

Where is the democracy in this country?

It is shocking to note that a case of sedition (deshdroh) has been booked against 49 intellectuals, including Aparna Sen, Mani Ratnam, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Ramachandra Guha, etc. All these 49 intellectuals have signed a letter, sent to the Prime Minister, Naredra Modi, in July this year, expressing their deep concern about the mob lynchings taking place in various parts of the country. All these 49 intellectuals have now become deshdrohis, for the simple reason that, they wrote a letter to the Prime Minister, drawing his attention to an important issue. We do not no whether we are living in a democratic country or living under dictatorship. If a sedition case can be booked for writing a letter to the Prime Minister, then, where is the democracy in this country?

How to improve efficiency and productivity in BSNL – A brief but significant discussion between BSNLEU and CMD BSNL.

On the issue of improving efficiency and productivity in BSNL, a brief but significant discussion took place between BSNLEU and Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL, when the GS and Dy.GS of BSNLEU met the latter on 17.12.2019. In that meeting, CMD BSNL, sought the co-operation of BSNLEU for improving efficiency and productivity in BSNL, so that BSNL could become profit earning at the earliest. The representatives of BSNLEU told the CMD BSNL that, they are fully with him on the issue of improving efficiency and productivity of BSNL. In fact, the unions and associations of BSNL have already launched many movements like “Customer Delight Year”, “Service With A Smile (SWAS)”, etc., to improve the quality of service, customer satisfaction and work culture, they pointed out. It was emphatically conveyed to the CMD BSNL that efficiency and productivity of the employees could be improved only by motivating them. GS pointed out a popular saying in English:-

“a captain orders, but a leader inspires”.

It was told that the CMD BSNL, being the leader of the Company, should inspire the employees for improving efficiency and productivity. Thus, BSNLEU indirectly conveyed to the CMD BSNL that, the type of Deepawali speech, made by him, to the Corporate Office staff on 25th October, 2019, would not help to improve efficiency and productivity in BSNL, rather he should inspire and motivate the employees for improving efficiency and productivity. In this context, BSNLEU also recollected the positive role played by the erstwhile CMD BSNL, Shri Anupam Shrivastava.
