The entire BSNL Executives and Non-Executives have went on several strikes, organised Marches to Sanchar Bhawan, Marches to Raj Bawans and other campaigns, opposing the Subsidiary Tower Company. The BSNL Management and the government had kept the functioning of the Tower Company (BSNL Tower Company Limited - BTCL) at a low profile for some time. However, of late, the Management has stepped-up the functioning of the BTCL. At the same time, the government has announced that it will be raising Rs.40,000 crore, by way of monetising the towers and fibre of BSNL / MTNL. Hence, the government intends to induct a strategic partner into the BTCL. Under these circumstances, BSNLEU has written to the CMD BSNL, demanding to stop operationalising the BTCL.
