TRAI releases recommendations on “Efficient Utilization of Numbering Resources in India”:TRAI has recommended that India should migrate to an integrated numbering scheme for fixed and mobile services by 31st December, 2011. In other words both fixed line and mobile phones will have a 10-digit number. This would make available enough numbers to cater to expansion of existing services and introduction of new services for the next 30-40 years. This integrated numbering will also facilitate extension of number portability to fixed lines.

Government has lifted Ban on BSNL to procure equipment from Chinese vendors: After a temporary bar due to security concerns, the government has lifted ban on state-run telecom firm BSNL to procure equipment from Chinese vendors, . "In the interest of national security, the government had directed BSNL in May, 2009 that resources should not be procured from the Chinese vendors for deployment in the sensitive regions (especially border states)," Minister of State for Telecom and IT Sachin Pilot said in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha.

New guidelines have been issued for procuring telecom equipment from foreign vendors in consultation with the Ministry of Home Affairs to address security concerns, Pilot said, adding "accordingly, now BSNL may enter into agreement with foreign vendors for purchase of equipments/ software/ services."

In its last tender for about five million GSM lines, the BSNL had invited bids only from three European and American vendors and Chinese companies were totally left out.

SNEA had raised the issue with the Department of Telecom (DoT) last week. They alleged that ban on BSNL for buying equipment from Chinese vendors was "discriminatory", as private players were allowed the imports from China.

Elaborating on the reasons for "discrimination" against BSNL, Pilot said that participation of foreign companies in strategic sector has bearing on national security. "BSNL being a public sector undertaking, it network has to be relied upon in emergency," he added.

Earlier, DoT had barred BSNL from deploying Chinese equipment in sensitive regions -- Assam, Manipur, Tripura, Sikkim, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Meghalaya, West Bengal, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Maharashtra.

Now, with the new guidelines and template of agreement between telecom service providers and equipment vendors in place, BSNL would be able to place the orders with any foreign firm including from China.

Questioning the rationale behind the move, Sanchar Nigam Employees Association had said, "This is absolutely ridiculous for the simple reason that the move is just intended to jeopardise the growth of BSNL.

"How are the security interests of the country protected while allowing private operators to install Chinese GSM equipment and restraining BSNL from doing so?"

BSNL plans to expand network capacity manifold in the coming months in view of growing demand for mobile telephony, especially in the rural areas. Allowing BSNL to buy equipment freely from foreign vendors will help the state-owned firm in taking commercially viable decisions.

BSNL has suffered a net loss of Rs. 1822.65 crore during the financial year 2009-10: The loss incurred by BSNL is mainly on account of reduction in revenue and increase in expenditure. The reduction in BSNL revenue is mainly because of decline in revenue from wire-lines due to churning of fixed line subscribers in view of preference to mobile telephony and fall in ARPU (Average Revenue Per User). Though there is a net increase in number of wireless connections yet revenue decreased mainly due to reduction in tariff by BSNL in the competitive market. The main reasons for increase in Expenditure are as below:

(i) The staff expenditure has increased due to implementation of recommendations of Wage Revision Committee. The wage revision has alone caused an additional expenditure of Rs. 2900 crore over the previous year on account of payment of arrears for the period from 01.01.2007 to 31.03.2010.

(ii) Increase in depreciation is due to amortization of one time spectrum fee for 3G & (Broadband Wireless Access) BWA service.

The Government was expecting candidates from private sector including Mr Arun Sarin, former CEO of Vodafone. However, it is not clear if any top notch executive from the private sector has applied. The selection panel is headed by the cabinet secretary. The panel was formed on the suggestions of a special committee headed by Mr Sam Pitroda, advisor to the Prime Minister.

17th Aug 2010 R.K.Dawra, GM(infra)/Haryana - stigma on BSNL – should be sent to gallows for persistent sexual harassments – failure of CGM/Haryana to lodge an FIR raises serious issues of complicity of top brass of Haryana Circle to shield the guilty: SNEA(I) CHQ strongly condemn the deliberate inaction of the CGM HARYANA in not initiating appropriate action to nail in R.K.Dawra, GM(infra) circle office, Ambala for his established sexual harassment of lady JTO.
CGM is taking absolutely no cognizance and follow up action of the orders of DOP & Trg. based on the comprehensive guidelines of Hon'ble Supreme Court which clearly envisage that employer (CGM Haryana ) should initiate action under provisions of Indian Penal Court by approaching the appropriate law enforcing agencies. What is deplorable on the part of CGM is his shielding the culprit by not initiating action to file an FIR in deference to the guidelines of the Hon'ble apex court regarding sexual harassment at workplaces.
However the Association is all determined to relentlessly pursue the matter and ensure that full justice is met out to our innocent comrade by getting the culprit punishes under relevant provisions of IPC.

Leh cloud burst and Day light robbery by private airlines companies:
Extending helping hand to the fellow man who is badly in need of it, is one of the basic human values. However, it is proved beyond doubt recently, when disaster struck Leh, that the profit hungry private airlines companies are take benefit of this human value.

It is reported that the situation was exploited by private airlines companies and they have looted these tourists. They have charged as much as Rs. 30,000 to Rs.35,000 per passenger, as fare from Leh to Delhi. It is nothing but daylight robbery.
The Leh experience should teach a lesson to the people of this country, that the existence of a strong Public Sector is very essential to serve the nation in times of crisis.
