prevailing in many parts of the country. They drew the
attention of the CMD to media reports, which have quoted the
Hon'ble MoS(C) as saying that, 4G spectrum would be allotted
to BSNL only in December, 2018. The CMD BSNL told that, he
is taking all out efforts for the early allotment of 4G
spectrum and recently he has again written an emotional
letter to Secy(T), DoT for immediate allotment of 4G
spectrum to BSNL which has 40 watt Tx capacity whereas
BSNL's 2G/3G spectrum is having 20Watt Tx capacity and this
is the urgent need of hour.

nail. Decision has been taken to stall the Board meeting,

Company. This issue came up for discussion today.
Consolidation is taking place in a big
way in the telecom sector. All the small operators have
closed down their business. After the recent merger of
Vodafone and Idea, there are only 4 operators in each
circle. BSNL, Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone - Idea. Under these
circumstances, there will be very less business for the
Subsidiary Tower Company and now it has no relevance to
operate tower subsidiary company. Now there is no
sustainability of tower subsidiary company. The BSNL
Management has informed this to the government, through it's
letter, written a last week only. This was explained by the
CMD BSNL in today's meeting.
Outsourcing of passive maintenance of
representatives expressed their concern at the outsourcing.
The CMD BSNL replied that at present the "uptime" of BSNL
towers is only 80% - 85%. The uptime will increase to 97%,
due to this outsourcing. Further, BSNL will save Rs.100
crore by way of maintenance expenditures through
outsourcing. While the active maintenance of towers would be
continued to be done by BSNL, only the passive maintenance,
including provisioning of batteries, engine alternators,
diesel, payment of EB bill, etc., would be done by the
outsourced party. The total payment for this will be Rs.6633
crores. The CMD BSNL further told that, the cases filed in
the Delhi High Court and Supreme Court, against this
outsourcing, by vested interests, are already dismissed.
BSNL's 3500 of BSNL CSCs to be used by
UIDAI:The CMD BSNL informed
that UIDAI has decided to utilise 3500 of BSNL's CSCs for
Aadhaar authentication. For this, the UIDAI will give money
for Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure
(OPEX) to BSNL. The CMD BSNL told that this would help BSNL.
