BSNL Employees to organize national convention on 'Revival of BSNL'
A National Convention of BSNL Employees on 'Revival of BSNL' will be held at Mavlankar Hall, New Delhi on 3rd August, 2013. Dr. Sanjeeva Reddy, MP, President, INTUC, Gurudas Dasgupta, M.P, General Secretary, AITUC, Swadesh Dev Roye, Secretary, CITU, Baidyanath Rai, General Secretary, BMS, T.K.S. Elangovan, M.P., LPF, Dr. Udit Raj, Confederation of SC/ST organizations and other leaders will address the convention.

The National Convention is being organized by the Forum of BSNL Unions / Associations which represents the more than 2.5 lakh employees of BSNL, including executives.

The convention is intended to focus the issues facing BSNL, the telecom PSU, due to the anti-PSU policies of the government as also the non-procurement of essential equipment like mobile lines, cables, Broad-Band Modem etc. and to find out remedies to improve and expand the services.

A detailed Memorandum has been submitted by the Forum to Sh. P. Chidambaram, Finance Minister, who is the Chairman of the Group of Ministers appointed to take necessary decisions for Revival of BSNL & MTNL.

BSNL has been posting loss for the last four years mainly because of the company’s revenue has gone down from about Rs.40,000 crore To Rs.27,000 crore. Morethan 1,30,000 employees have retired during the last 10 years causing shortage of staff which is compensated by engaging about 1,00,000 contract workers. It is in this context that BSNL proposes to retrench one lakh workers, which will result in complete dislocation of work.

All these and other issues will be focused in the convention and also suggestions for improvement and expansion for a better service to the people.
