BSNL, MTNL should become more efficient by emphasizing on ROI
Some reports on the government run telecom service providers MTNL and BSNL are not very encouraging. Based on reports both the entities, BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd.) and MTNL (Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd.) have been procuring assets (various equipments including imported ones) worth around Rs 20,000 crores every year for the past five years or more.
However, the performance of BSNL is not encouraging on many fronts including financial fronts. The following are pointed out as major bottlenecks:
  • Both these organizations while buying different equipments for their operations seem to be missing the point that ROI (Return on Investment) is a key parameter to be associated with every equipment that is purchased. The private players in this industry segment attach big importance to ROI and therefore their financial results are better in comparisons.

It is reported that some employees while working in these sectors, for bettering their future prospects, are in constant touch with private players and at opportune time leave their jobs and join the private sectors.

  • At times, Voluntary Retirement Schemes are announced regularly, but still the staff bill for both of these sectors are very high. Comparatively, in private sectors, more number of contract labours are employed.

  • It would be better if experts are involved in making a detailed study as to how to make the above organizations run better in the future by doing away with as many bottlenecks as possible and bring them at par with private players for showing better financial results.
