09-04-2019 : All Circle/District Secretaries are requested to organise powerful demonstration on 12-04-2019 to oppose VRS:- In the name of revival of BSNL, the government is moving fast to implement VRS in BSNL. The DoT has not bothered to discuss it's so called revival plan of BSNL with the unions and associations, which are important stake-holders of BSNL. Further, the government has unilaterally decided to divert the income to be generated through the monetisation of BSNL's lands, to fund the VRS. This is nothing, but a well thought of plan, to deprive BSNL of the funds needed for it’s development and financial revival. Further, VRS is the government's strategy to cut down the size of BSNL's employees, so as to make it attractive for privatisation. The unions and associations which are opposing VRS have called on the employees to organise protest demonstrations throughout the country on 12-04-2019. We request all the circle and district unions to mobilise maximum number of employees and to make the demonstration a huge success.

15-03-2019 : Participate in the Massive March to Sanchar Bhawan to be held on 05.04.2019:- The government is taking calculated steps to kill BSNL, to facilitate Reliance Jio to capture the entire telecom market. The DoT, which is the Administrative Ministry of BSNL, is meticulously implementing the government decisions to finish off BSNL. The steps being taken by the government and the DoT have placed BSNL in such a critical condition, that the employees are unable to get their salary today. The DoT is not allowing BSNL to take bank loan for it’s operational expenditures (OPEX). The DoT is deliberately not making payment of Rs.2,500 crore to BSNL, for the works that the latter has executed for the government. Due to shortage of funds, BSNL is not even able to pay electricity bills, which has resulted in disconnection of EB connections to BTSs and Exchanges. This in turn is seriously affecting the services. The AUAB discussed all these issues during the last 3 days and has firmly decided to expose the conspiracies of the government and the DoT, to the people of this country. Hence, the AUAB has decided to organise a massive March to Sanchar Bhawan on 05.04.2019. It has decided to invite the leaders of all political parties to address this rally. All the circle and district unions are requested to mobilise the maximum number of employees for the rally, and to make it historic event.

22-02-2019 : For BSNL, it is expected that 75,000 employees could possibly retire in natural course and it might also help the organisation, where the wage bill is 60 per cent, come back to a sound financial position. In case of MTNL, the HR bill is 85-90 per cent of the revenue. The VRS estimates are Rs 2,120 crore for MTNL and Rs 6,365 crore for BSNL and both these are proposed to be funded through bonds over a 10-year period to minimize cost pressure on the government, the sources added, while stating that with mass retirements coming, the pension obligations of the government will also go up to some extent. "The restructuring would address two main issues. The first core issue is for the employees and a VRS package in line with the Gujarat model which the organisations believe will be quite attractive and may find 50 per cent takers and the second step would address the issue of huge debt which both BSNL and MTNL carry. "MTNL has a debt of Rs 20,000 crore and BSNL Rs 15,000 crore. In order to ensure that the outgo to the government is minimum and there is least cost implication, it has been proposed by the DoT (to DDC) that the VRS and MTNLs BWA interests be funded through a 10-year term bond issue. Secondly, the debt be completely financed through lease of land. The model adopted for reducing the debt is land monetisation through lease because they have substantive assets," the sources said. MTNL has sought refund of interest on a loan it had taken earlier to acquire the BWA spectrum. The DCC suggested that the lease proposal of these PSUs are handled through the mechanism of DIPAM or the department of disinvestment which has an institutional set up to do it across ministries. See part No ... 3.
22-02-2019 : DOT proposes issuing 10 years bonds, monetising assets reduce debts BSNL, MTNL :- No decision, however, has been taken on the BSNL-MTNL revival plans discussed in the meeting. The Digital Communications Commission, an inter-ministerial panel of DoT, on Thursday discussed the revival proposals of two of its struggling PSUs - BSNL and MTNL - where the department proposed issue of 10-year bonds to fund their VRS plans and that their huge land assets be monetised through leasing to reduce their rising debts. The revival of MTNL and BSNL was also discussed at the meeting. Both the organisations face the biggest common hurdle of a very large legacy of staff which has been given by DoT to them. So, restructuring would be essential for revival being planned, official sources said. No decision has, however, been taken on BSNL-MTNL revival plans discussed in the meeting. Informed sources said: "What was impressed upon the DCC was that DoT believes that telecom is a strategic sector and therefore the governments presence in this sector is desirable and these are organisations with considerable strength, capabilities and strong asset base." BSNL had given two proposals -- VRS and land monetisation. BSNL has 1.76 lakh employees while MTNL has 22 thousand employees. In both, the majority of them are above the age of 50. Three issues were raised in the package of MTNL -- VRS, refund of Broadband Wireless spectrum (BWA) interest and land monetisation. In the case of MTNL, the sources said it was estimated that over the next five years, about 16,000 employees will retire. So with VRS, their exits will be accelerated a bit and that the task of bringing back the company to health becomes faster. See part no ....2.
22-02-2019 : Plan to monetise BharatNet assets approved :-The Digital Communications Commission (DCC), the inter-ministerial panel of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), has given in-principle nod for monetisation of fibre assets of BharatNet. These assets will be offered to the private telcos through auction, lease for 20 years or by outright sale. The DCC took up the issue of marketing of the fibre asset as BharatNet had failed to ensure effective utilisation of this costly asset. Most assets, around 2.5 lakh km of fibre, will be offered to the private sector. It was also decided the DoT should also look at the outright sale as well as a different model of leasing. The Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF) has been asked to work out various sales and outright leasing options within 10 days. The DCC has decided to put as many as 20 fibre assets or pairs on auctions for private entities for a 20-year lease term after retaining four, in the 2.5 lakh km of optic fibre cable (OFC) deployed under the BharatNet-I programme. So far, no estimation on revenue proceeds has been made and will be worked. Under the BharatNet scheme, over 100,000 gram panchayats has been provided with the fibre network, but states are not coming forward to utilise it, said a DoT official. –IANS
