Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited was formed on 1st Oct 2000 in pursuance of Telecom Policy 1999 as a Public Sector Company fully owned by Government of India to take over the ongoing business of the Department of Telecom Services (DTS) and Department of Telecom Operations (DTO) with a vision to become the largest Telecom service provider in Asia and Mission to provide world class affordable services and infrastructure in rural and remote area .

Even Electric bills are delayed and paid with penalties. Now BSNL struggling to survive due to negligible support from Government of India. Employees medical bills & perks are either withheld or withdrawn and 3rd PRC is still not implemented . BSNL Management extended 7th PRC benefits to deputed ITS officers and upgraded Air travel from economy class to business class, club membership and other facilities further deteriorating BSNL financial condition. So TOA BSNL demand roll back of BSNL and Nationalized it into Central Government Department on BSNL Day as it failed to achieve its objectives .

Telecom has revived, now among fastest growing sectors: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the country's telecom sector has revived from its period of "darkness" and is among the fastest growing sectors in the country. Speaking at the foundation stone laying ceremony of the India International Convention and Expo Centre here, he remarked that with the sector currently witnessing growth, India is moving towards 5G network infrastructure. "The country's telecom sector has come out of the darkness that prevailed 5-6 years ago," the Prime Minister said, adding that it is currently among the fastest growing sectors in the country. The telecom sector had received a jolt after the revelation of the alleged 2G scam in the year 2010, and the 122 licenses issued in 2008 were subsequently cancelled. Further, the established players in the market received another big hit with the entry of Reliance Jio in 2016 in the 4G segment with significantly low tariffs. Describing the current market scenario, Modi said that voice calls now are almost free and the 1 GB of 4G data is available at Rs 19-20, as compared to the previous range of Rs 250-300. for detail click https://telecom.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/telecom-has-revived-now-among-fastest-growing-sectors-modi/65894907

No plan to sell tower business to Jio: BSNL: Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) Wednesday described as “completely false” a recent report talking about the possibility of a sale of the state-run telco’s mobile tower business to Reliance Jio Infocomm.

NEW DELHI: Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) Wednesday described as "completely false" a recent report talking about the possibility of a sale of the state-run telco's mobile tower business to Reliance Jio Infocomm. On Wednesday, a Hindi-language daily reported that the government-controlled telco was looking to sell its tower arm to the Mumbai-based private telco that has commercially launched pure-play fourth-generation (4G) services in September 2016. “This is completely false,” BSNL Chairman Anupam Shrivastava told ETTelecom. “There is no truth in it. Had BSNL wanted to sell its mobile towers to any private sector firm, it wouldn’t have formed a separate company and brought them under it,” Telecom Officers Association (TOA) general secretary Anil Kumar Tiwari added. In September 2017, the Cabinet had approved the telco’s proposal to hive off its telecom tower portfolio into a new fully-owned subsidiary which would become operational within the next two years. BSNL has already formed a new tower company called, BSNL Tower Corporation Limited (BTCL). "The regulatory process is underway and it would start operations soon,” Shrivastava told earlier. The telco is also looking to add 12,000 mobile towers as a part of 3G expansion in FY 2018-19. for detail click https://telecom.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/no-plan-to-sell-tower-business-to-jio-bsnl/65963275
