दुष्प्रचारकों द्वारा एक अफवाह फैलाई जा रही है कि माननीय संचार राज्य मंत्री श्री मनोज सिंन्हा द्वारा बीएसएनएल कर्मियों के वेज रिवीजन हेतु प्रस्तुत किए जाने वाले कैबिनेट नोट न बनाने के DOT को निर्देश दिए हैं। यह पूर्ण रूप से गलत खबर है, जिसका उद्देश्य कर्मचारियों को भ्रमित करना मात्र है। *DoT के डायरेक्टर (PSU) ने बीएसएनएल ईयू के महासचिव को स्पष्ट किया है कि इस तरह के कोई निर्देश माननीय संचार राज्य मंत्री द्वारा DOT को नही दिए गए हैं। साथ ही, डायरेक्टर (PSU) ने यह भी कन्फर्म किया है कि कैबिनेट नोट बनाने का कार्य अंतिम चरण में है।*
AUAB कैबिनेट नोट के प्रेषण में की जा रही देरी से व्यथित है और शीघ्र ही आगामी रणनीति/प्रोग्राम ऑफ एक्शन तय करने के लिए मीटिंग आहूत की जा रही है।

As per the report of the Economic Times, the US research and brokerage firm Bernstein has stated that the potential loss of Jio, for the financial year 2018-19 will be Rs.15,000 crores. This loss of Jio, is far worse than the losses being incurred by Vodafone Idea and Airtel. Bernstein has also stated that Jio is "managing" it's accounts to show a profit. For example, Jio has incurred Rs.7,500 crore as Handset Subsidies" to it's customers. Had this expenditure been shown in Jio's profit and loss account, the Company would have incurred a loss of Rs.3,800 crore, in the October to December quarter of 2018-19. But, this expenditure was shown in the accounts of Reliance Retail. As a result this, Jio is shown to have made a profit of Rs.831 crore net profit in the October to December quarter of 2018-19. The Economic Times reports that Reliance Jio did not respond to it's query, on the report of Bernstein. Economic Times has also stated, quoting market analysts, that Jio will start increasing it's tariffs, once it reaches the market share of 30%.
