ETG decides to allow BSNL to procure 4G equipments from global vendors..

BSNL’s 4G service launching is getting terribly delayed. The stand of the government that, BSNL should procure the core equipments of 4G only from Indian companies, is delaying BSNL’s 4G launching. This delay is threatening the very future of BSNL and it’s employees. BSNLEU is continuously taking up this issue at the level of the Minister for Communications and Prime Minister. Even currently, BSNLEU is organising street corner meetings throughout the country, demanding the government to allow BSNL to procure 4G equipments.

 

In this backdrop, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, discussed this issue with the CMD BSNL, yesterday the 30.03.2021. During the discussion, the CMD BSNL informed the General Secretary that, the Empowered Technology Group (ETG), headed by Shri Vijay Raghavan, Principal Advisor to the Prime Minister on Science and Technology, had decided to allow BSNL to procure it’s 4G equipments from global vendors, such as Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, etc. The CMD BSNL told that BSNL is taking steps to float a tender for this. Certainly, this is a welcome development and very big relief to BSNL. However, it will take at least one more year for BSNL to launch it’s 4G service by procuring equipments from the new tender.

The General Secretary also made it clear to the CMD BSNL that, monetisation of BSNL’s mobile towers means nothing, but privatisation of BSNL’s towers, which the employees will not allow.

Thus, the total bad loans written off in less than 3 years comes to Rs.5,85,473 crores. A major chunk of these loans were taken by the corporates and not returned. The government does not take firm action against the defaulting corporates. This results in the looting of public money, by big corporates.
