29.09.2017 AIBSNLEA Wishes a very Happy and Prosperous retiring life to all BSNL's Retiring Officers of all disciplines Today....

29.09.2017 CMD BSNL meeting with BSNL Unions and Associations Core Group:

GS along with GS of BSNLEU, GS NFTE and GS SNEA has attended the meeting convened by CMD BSNL today at 1530 hrs to discuss the present condition of BSNL.

 

CMD apprised about the Indian Mobile congress (IMC) on 25-26 September 2017 at Pragati Maidan wherein many private operators CEOs visited BSNL Stall and commented  by  Shri Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance industries that  himself said that BSNL is  standing in the competition in comparison to other operators. Best stall there is of BSNL.

 

Current market scenario CMD informed that positive side for BSNL is that the market share of BSNL has increased from 8.6 in March,2017 to 8.84 in July 2017 in mobile segment despite of  tough competition. Media has also reported that BSNL has challenge the Reliance Jio in the ongoing tariff war. Whole credit goes to the BSNL employees and we are proud of it.

 

However BSNL has suffered on financial front. Revenue in July impacted huge due to GST implementation. But with the sincere and dedicated efforts of the BSNL Finance wing officers in BSNL CO and IFA sin field units met the challenge and could resolve the problems immediately. In the month of Aug the realisation was 98.9% and in September till date 55%.  Due to this cash crunch in the month of July the salary was disbursed on OD.

 

Earlier IUC charges benchmark was 0.14 paisa which is now reduce to 0.6 paisa. In our opinion it should be minimum 0.22 paisa.

 

Now BSNL has to launch aggressive tariffs in view of this BSNL in collaboration with micromax is launching bundled feature phone having smartphone features on the price of Rs 2,200 and Rupees 97 sim with unlimited voice and Data. It will be matching brand with Jio. This product will save customers in rural and medium class. BSNL is subsidising Rs 1200 out of 2200 and this product will be named Bharat-1.

 

BSNL has also tied up with Vodafone on prepaid service for free roaming  now customer of BSNL may roam on Vodafone network freely . post-paid will also take place soon.

 

Recently BSNL has received Rs 1500 crores from NFS amount which will help immediately.

 

Mobile phase –VIII PO s have been placed in North south and West zone . In east zone PO will be placed shortly.

 

BSNL is earning around 12000 crores revenue per annum from CFA business. Hence its own strategies are different than other operators. As About Rs 16000 crore on salary payment alone .Wi-Fi, landline and Wi-Fi integrated to mobile network are being provided by BSNL only. Landline broadband it is giving good revenue through NGN wireless services, Wi-Fi services holds on the broadband market. Further any suggestion may be given by unions and association within one week time in this regard.

 

BSNL has also applied for 4G spectrum allocation (2100 MHz band) which will cater 3G also. The spectrum charges will be paid on yearly basis up to ten years. 2G phase VIII order need to be reviewed.

 

Regarding Core network, OTN phase-I and phase-II has come. PGCIL connectivity also effective.

 

3rd PRC implementation in BSNL with 15 % fitment benefit: CMD informed that BSNL MC has approved the 3rd PRC report with 15% fitment benefit and it has been sent to DOT for clearance. Simultaneously it will be placed in the next Board meeting for approval shortly. He further mentioned that Secretary Telecom also commented that BSNL deserves for 3rd PRC implementation and she will meet Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) along with CMD BSNL in the next week to get his consent. He also mentioned that Hon'ble MOSC (I/C) wants to implement 3rd PRC in BSNL from his core of heart.

 

Creation of tower subsidiary:

CMD mentioned that after creation of tower subsidiary immediately BSNL will get 8% tax saving benefit and tower subsidiary may help in giving more revenue to BSNL. The depreciation amount of BSNL will reduce about 1500 crores. BSNL will be giving initially Rs 7000 crores notional loan to tower subsidiary against which it will get interest.

 

As per our opinion the negative side is to pay rent to tower subsidiary for hiring towers. And the strategic  business partner induction may pave the way for its complete disinvestment and privatisation. CMD commented that in his opinion for next ten year it is not visible.

 

On the issue of PLI payment this year CMD assured to look into.

 

We also discussed our "Candle Light March" also with CMD.

 

After detailed discussions meeting ended at 1745 hrs.

05.09.2017: Meeting with CMD BSNL:

GS, President and AGS (F) met CMD, BSNL and discussed regarding:

(i) Implementation of 3rd PRC report in BSNL: We requested to implement 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL by getting an early approval from BSNL MC and BSNL Board. Also requested to use his good office in DOT to get approved 3rd PRC recommendations with 15% fitment benefit in BSNL. CMD, BSNL mentioned that shortly the matter will be discussed in the Management Committee of BSNL Board and thereafter in BSNL Board for its approval. He further mentioned that first DOT should allow implementation of 3rd PRC in BSNL. The fitment benefit 5%, 10% or 15% may be left with BSNL Board to implement in 2nd phase. We requested that BSNL Board should recommend 15% fitment benefit in its approval. It should not be left pending for 2nd phase. But CMD remained non-committal on this issue and mentioned that let us wait and watch the approval of BSNL MC/ BSNL Board.

It is understood that the BSNL Management is refraining to recommend 15% fitment benefit. In view of this all BSNL Unions/Associations should immediately mount pressure on BSNL Management for implementation of 3rd PRC with 15% fitment benefit only.

(ii) Extension of Night Free Calls to Gr. A officers to concessional residential telephone also: We requested for extension of Night Free Calls on the concessional telephones of Gr. "A" officers also. CMD BSNL mentioned that Group-A officers should sacrifice this facility and set the example. We pleaded that normally even the free calls are not being exhausted but this facility will allow Group-"A" officers to use night free calling facility in the interest of BSNL only.
