1.8 crore customers left BSNL in one year - BSNLEU once again writes to the Hon'ble Minister of Communications demanding immediate intervention.

The commissioning of BSNL's 4G network is getting horribly delayed. As a result of this, customers are leaving BSNL massively. BSNLEU is continuously writing letters to the Hon'ble Minister of Communications and to the BSNL Management, highlighting the massive exodus of customers from BSNL, due to the non-availability of 4G / 5G service. BSNLEU had already requested the government to permit BSNL to utilise Vodafone Idea's network temporarily, for providing 4G service to it's customers. However, it is unfortunate that, the government has not taken any action. On 16-04-2024, BSNLEU has organised nationwide demonstrations, demanding government's immediate intervention on this matter. The New Indian Express dated 04-05-2024 has reported that, totally 1.8 crore customers have left BSNL in the financial year ended March, 2024. The newspaper report also says that, 23 lakh customers have left BSNL in the month of March, 2024 alone. Under this circumstance, BSNLEU has once again written letter to Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw, Hon'ble Minister of Communications today, demanding the prompt intervention of the government, to enable BSNL to immediately provide 4G service to it's customers. Copy of the letter is enclosed for the information of our comrades.

Hindi translation of "1.8 crore customers left BSNL in one year - BSNLEU once again writes to the Hon'ble Minister of Communications demanding immediate intervention."

एक साल में 1.8 करोड़ ग्राहकों ने बीएसएनएल छोड़ा - बीएसएनएलईयू ने एकबार फिर माननीय संचार मंत्री को पत्र लिखकर तुरंत हस्तक्षेप की मांग की है।

बीएसएनएल के 4जी नेटवर्क के चालू होने में काफी देरी हो रही है। इसके परिणामस्वरूप बड़े पैमाने पर ग्राहक बीएसएनएल छोड़ रहे हैं। बीएसएनएलईयू माननीय संचार मंत्री और बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन को लगातार पत्र लिख रहा है, जिसमें 4जी/5जी सेवा की अनुपलब्धता के कारण बीएसएनएल से ग्राहकों के बड़े पैमाने पर  ग्राहक बीएसएनएल छोड़ रहे हैं.  बीएसएनएलईयू ने पहले ही सरकार से अनुरोध किया था कि वह अपने ग्राहकों को 4जी सेवा प्रदान करने के लिए बीएसएनएल को अस्थायी रूप से वोडाफोन आइडिया के नेटवर्क का उपयोग करने की अनुमति दे।  हालाँकि, यह दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण है कि, सरकार ने कोई कार्रवाई नहीं की है। बीएसएनएलईयू ने इस मामले पर सरकार से तुरंत हस्तक्षेप की मांग करते हुए 16-04-2024 को   देशव्यापी प्रदर्शन का आयोजन किया है। न्यू इंडियन एक्सप्रेस दिनांक 04-05-2024 ने रिपोर्ट दी है कि, मार्च, 2024 को समाप्त वित्तीय वर्ष में कुल 1.8 करोड़ ग्राहकों ने बीएसएनएल छोड़ दिया है। अखबार की रिपोर्ट यह भी कहती है कि, मार्च, 2024 के महीने में 23 लाख ग्राहकों ने बीएसएनएल छोड़ दिया है। इस परिस्थिति में, बीएसएनएलईयू ने आज एक बार फिर माननीय संचार मंत्री श्री अश्विनी वैष्णव को पत्र लिखकर सरकार से शीघ्र हस्तक्षेप की मांग की है, ताकि बीएसएनएल अपने ग्राहकों को तुरंत 4जी सेवा प्रदान कर सके। हमारे साथियों की जानकारी के लिए पत्र की प्रति संलग्न है।

Observe this year's May Day with revolutionary fervour.

The CHQ of BSNLEU calls upon the circle and district unions to observe this year’s May Day by hoisting the Union flag, participating in rallies and organising seminars and special meetings. We shall pay homage to the May Day martyrs, who laid down their lives in Chicago in 1886, fighting to achieve the demand of 8 hours’ work, 8 hours' recreation and 8 hours' sleep. On one side, the capitalists class is trying to increase the working hours. It is in this background that, Shri Narayana Murthy, co-founder of the Infosys, has told that the Indian youth should work for 70 hours a week. On the other side, the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), of which BSNLEU is an affiliate, has raised the demand for 35 hours’ work in a week. Militant struggles of the working class have taken place in the recent months in all the developed capitalist nations like the UK, Germany, France, the US, etc., on the demands of  wage increase and reducing the workload. All these issues need to be highlighted in our slogans, meetings, rallies, etc., to be organised in this year’s May Day. Circle and district unions of BSNLEU are requested to effectively organise this year’s May Day activities and send the reports and photos to the CHQ.

Non-payment of revised IDA rates w.e.f. 01.04.2024 – BSNLEU writes to the Secretary, Ministry of Labour.

As is known to all the employees, the revised rate of IDA has not been paid w.e.f. 01.04.2024. This is because, the Labour Bureau, which releases the All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) figures, has not released the same for the month of March, 2024. Hence, the DPE has not announced the revised IDA rates w.e.f. 01.04.2024. Such a delay has never been witnessed before. In view of this, BSNLEU has written a letter to the Secretary, Ministry of Labour, today, demanding to immediately intervene in this matter and to take appropriate action.

BSNL Employees Union Protests Nationwide for 4G and 5G Services.

Pune, 17th April 2024: Citizens across the country are calling for BSNL to offer 4G and 5Gservices, but the company has not yet received the necessary equipment from TCS to provide these services. As a result, BSNL is unable to offer 4G and 5G connectivity to its customers, and there has been a delay from the central government as well. This has prompted the BSNL Employees Union to launch protests nationwide, including in Pune on Tuesday.

 

A protest was held in front of the BSNL office on Satara Road, organized by the BSNL Employees Union Coordinating Committee. The demonstrators demanded that BSNL be equipped with 4G and 5G technology as soon as possible. MI Jakati, the union’s president in Pune, stated that the central government had allowed only BSNL to use domestically produced4G equipment as part of the “Self-reliant India” initiative. Meanwhile, other mobile service providers are using 4G devices from companies in China and South Korea.

 

BSNL reluctantly agreed to partner with TCS to produce 4G equipment, but after three years, TCS has not yet developed these devices. Furthermore, TCS is seeking assistance from China’s ZT Company to develop 4G equipment, which has delayed the process even further.

 

As a result of the lack of 4G and 5G services, BSNL has lost customers, which has harmed the company. Jakati argued that this situation may lead to the deliberate privatization of BSNL to benefi t private companies. He called on the government to act quickly by providing the necessary equipment to BSNL or allowing the company to use Vodafone’s equipment, as Vodafone is a government-owned entity.

 

Other union members, including Nagesh Kumar Nalavde, Sandeep Gulunjkar, Kishore Gawali,Baban Suryavanshi, and Manjusha Lachke, participated in the movement, while Vikas Kadamserved as moderator and Ganesh Bhoj gave the vote of thanks.
