He mentioned that BSNL Management has also given the presentation to DoT on 8th & 9th May, 2013 on this issue. We apprised him that the memorandum has been given to the members of GoMs as well as being given to all the Hon'ble MP's throughout the country to apprise them on the issue. 

CMD apprised in brief that Govt.  is planning for revival plan in three phases i.e. Short Term, Medium Term and Long Term Plans. The GoM meeting was scheduled to be held on 10th May 2013 but it  has been cancelled, hence we have sufficient time to brief GoM . On the issue of 78..2% IDA fixation, the Forum leaders demanded that the orders be issued without any further delay, in any case before 12.06.2013, when one year will be over after the strike agreement on 78..2% IIDA fixation. Forum also suggested that CMD pursue the matter with BRPSE to which it has been referred to. On the issue of 78.2% IDA fixation,  CMD mentioned that It is agreed that presently BSNL is making losses but BSNL is not a sick industry, hence the case should have not been sent to BRPSE for comments. However, he assured to discuss the matter with Senior level officers in DoT as well as BRPSE for early settlement.

He also mentioned that this year BSNL's loss is expected to be about 8200 Crores which is Rs. 600 Crores less than the last year which gives a ray of hope for the revival. He also mentioned that BSNL's salary payment and OPEX charges are about 91.5% of the earnings and only 8.5% funds remains available for the developmental activities. On CAPEX  BSNL have  taken loan of about Rs.2000 Crores. But this can be paid in case the Rural Subsidiary Rs. 2750/- (Rs. 1500 Crores  from July- 2011 to June-2012 and Rs. 1250 Crores from  July-2012 to March-2013) is received from USO as per the decision of Telecom Commission. He further mentioned that notional loan Rs. 7500 Crores against BSNL has been paid to DOT with interest for the last thirteen years of Rs. 12000/- Crores and now on remaining loan of Rs. 1000 Crores will also be  paid shortly and the interest  amount will be less to pay.

On the query of BSNL/MTNL merger, he mentioned that it is a long term plan of Govt. to have Pan India presence PSU. Merge of BSNL/MTNL provides many benefits  these PSUs on Tax payments etc but some staff related issue i.e. higher pay in MTNL and Rule-37A Pension in BSNL etc. needs solution. But these may be sorted out when there is strong will power in Government. He appealed that BSNL Unions/Associations and BSNL Management should work as a team to protect BSNL &  for its growth.
