It will not only cause hardship to the Executives but will adversely affect the functioning of these Circles wherein huge number of expert Executives have been transferred on promotion to various Circles.

Shri Prahlad Rai, GS has suggested BSNL management the issues viz. Absorption of ITS officers in BSNL, Myth of the Privatisation / Disinvestment of BSNL being a panacea of all its problems, illogical interest and taxes being paid by BSNL, instructions to all Govt. Deptt. / Autonomous bodies where the Govt. Of India bears the cost of telephone expenditure for taking the telecom services from BSNL only to support BSNL, strengthening of marketing and sales units of BSNL, etc. for the financial viability of BSNL and requested to take necessary action immediately. He informed that under the leadership of CMD, the Enterprise Business has been increased manifold and requested CMD to further strengthen the E.B., so that more business can be achieved.

After introduction of CDR software the surrender of landline is more in A.P. Circle and the training given on CDR is not sufficient and the support given by TCS is not enough.  Due to improper and wrong implementation of CDR, many works are delayed like shifting, etc and the customers and facing problem and the issues of CDR may be set right immediately.  A committee may be formed to study and settle the issue of CDR so that the majority of surrender cases due to the problem of CDR can be stopped. Sufficient numbers of JAG posts are vacant and requested CMD to fill up those vacancies in all disciplines. Since the expectations have been met by the management, we should reciprocate to the organisation and during the period of the CMD.  He informed with his leadership, BSNL can grow and achieve its target. He has settled the major issues of non-executives also.  General Secretary stated that AIBSNLEA and its members will strive hard and devote ourself to the service and extend fullest support to ensure best telecom service to its customers.

Shri A.K. Kaushik, GS TEAM, MTNL New Delhi, in his address mentioned that  the issues raised by GS AIBSNLEA are  related to executives of BSNL and any organisation headed by the person Head of  HR will grow and achieve its target.  The HR issues are the main aspect to make the department for the development of the organisation is a must.     He requested CMD to put his offices to merge the BSNL and MTNL especially to get the PAN India status, so that leased line business can grow much.  He requested CMD to settle the bill payment of service connection of MTNL and BSNL and ITS absorption.  He pointed out that the professionals recruited in MTNL  in HR,  etc has served any purpose. Professionals are not the requirement of the organisation.   Persons cannot change, the system can only change the organisation.  In Govt. System decisions cannot be taken by the officers as against the decision making by the owners in the private competitors.  Liberty to the management and the employees is required and only by changing the head, the organisation cannot be changed.  He suggested to work together by resolving all HR issues.  He requested all executives to achieve the profession qualifications, instead of recruiting the professionals in the organisation from outside.  He has stated that the outsiders are integrated in the organisation to sell out the organisation.  We the executives and non-executives are asset of the organisation and work together for the growth of the organisation BSNL and MTNL.

Shri D P De, GM (Estt.), New Delhi in his address thanked the AIBSNLEA for inviting him for the meeting.  He stated any short coming can be overcome we have to find how we can delight out customer and marketing cannot give customer and only service only can give customers.  Customer will not stay with us if we do not give best service.  Congratulated all associated with the PRC.  Lot of HR related issues have been settled and the major issues e.g. DPE OM dated 02.04.2009, the case has already been recommended,  JTO officiating TTAs case is attend in court.  

Shri Aloke Kaul, CGM MH Circle stated that in his tenure of 32 years in the organisation, the current challenges are all of stand united and have one objective and to maximise our revenue, we have the EB, Broadband, pick up a lot in GSM,   We have to maximise our sales only through good quality of service let us all of us dedicate ourselves for good quality of service.  I would like to say the soft area which we have where we have to learn a lot is customer management and we have to develop and lot of sophisticated equipment.  We have to make trick to get the your attracted to us.  The Govt. Process of tender is to be handled and e-tendering is a grant success will help us in process.  Man power productivity, the market share has come down to increase it man power productivity norms along with our salary structure norms.  Let us do it.

Shri Gopal Das, CMD, BSNL in his speech expressed sincere thanks to Shri Rai, G.S. AIBSNLEA for having invited and giving this honour.  He felt privileged to be in the meeting and witness the rich culture and heritage of Goa, the beautiful state, people with lot of enthusiasm and beautiful venue for this conference.  He informed that BSNL is actually passing through a critical juncture, this year and have posted a loss of 1823 crores as against the profit of 512 Crs. during last financial year.  The conditions are very difficult and definitely we have to think over on the reasons.    There has been fierce competition, the tariffs have fallen, and our revenues have declined but at the same time our expenditures have increased manifold. In case of other operators the staff expenditure is only 10% as against the 40% in BSNL.  Our expenses cannot be reduced much but we have to find out ways how to remain profitable. There is stiff competition but at the same time there are lots of opportunities.  Today the total customer base all over the country is 652 Mn., our customer base is 99.5 Mn. and BSNL is having almost 15% customer base in the market share.

We have to find out methods to enhance our revenue.  We have ample opportunities and potential.  In the next 3 years total growth is expected to double.  BSNL have 3 lakh strong force with full expertise and experience and only the need of the hour is full determination to take the company to greater heights.  Basic thing to be done is to focus on service to the customer. As there are 14 operators, the customer has lot of options. Number portability is going to be introduced very soon and customer may migrate with same number to the best service provider.  Hence challenges are too many.

90% of the customers simply leave without any complaint.  First and foremost step is to improve the quality of service and customer service.  It does not need much of resources and can be done with available resources, if we are focused.   In case of landline, we have to ensure that no fault is kept pending beyond 12 hours.  The service delivery has to be fast.  Within 72 hours landline and broadband have to be provided.  Service delivery and service assurance has to be focused to improve our service quality.  We have to look to our strength and weakness.  Strength is strong work force, and huge capacity which is lying idle.   We can utilise the capacity to our advantage.  Cable pairs in many pillar areas are lying idle and can be used to provide landline and broadband connections.  Broadband on ADSL is our unique selling point and can be used to enhance revenue many fold.

 He further suggested that all the executives must engage the staff up to T.M. level and have a meeting with them once in a week for at least two hours and explain to them about our new services, marketing, competition in the competitive scenario.  In today's scenario, telecom has become like FMCG goods.  We must motivate our staff to sell landline connection in feasible areas. If this is done properly, we can make the company profitable. Let us use existing resources and generate additional revenue. 

CMD pointed out that many of our retailers are not selling our products and requested all the executives to monitor and ensure that the supply of materials are made to the retailers in time.

He mentioned that infrastructure sharing has to be done to reduce our expenditure and maximise the gain.  We have to explore all the possibilities.  Sharing of bandwidth is another area under consideration, as there is lot of spare capacity available.

He stated that the most of the issues of your cadre and career progression have been resolved and the list has been reduced drastically.  He has further informed that he has tried his level best to settle most of pending issues related to various cadres, but some issues will always be there and requested the executive to forget about the trivial issues as most of the major issues have been resolved and for next 6 months all of us must concentrate and focus on enhancement of revenue.  He stated that we must enhance revenue by 10% more over the previous year.  He appealed to all the executives to rise to the occasion and to communicate with subordinates, focus on customer, focus on business, retain the existing customers and grab new customers.  In broadband segment, many other operators are expected to rollout in next 6 months, hence, utilise the existing capacity immediately. CMD further mentioned that with sincere efforts by management and employees, we can regain the no. 1 status in the near future.

The meeting concluded by expressing thanks by Shri S. Ramamurthy, Circle President, MH Circle, to all the dignitaries  followed by Lunch.
