In case Board/Administrative Ministry is empowered then BSNL Board and DOT Administration should implement the 3rd PRC in BSNL in the interest of its Viability otherwise, we have to fight organisationally. National Forum of BSNL unions/associations are committed for 3rd PRC implementation and in case the BSNL Board/DOT Administration do not implement it, in that case national forum of BSNL unions and association will never hesitate to go on indefinite Strike as decided in 4th July 2017 meeting.
