BSNL-MTNL merger: DoT to put plan on Narendra Modi-led Cabinet table in June:

The Department of Telecom (DoT) is working to develop a plan for the stage-wise merger of loss-making state-run telecom operators BSNL and MTNL, and is expected to approach the Union Cabinet with the proposal by June this year.

The telecom ministry feels that a pan-India government operator is important for the sector to keep a check on cartelisation by private players. It anticipates that the ongoing consolidation in the industry will lead to four private players — Bharti Airtel and Telenor, Reliance Jio, the merged entity of Vodafone India-Idea Cellular and the firm created out of the merger of Reliance Communications, MTS and Aircel.

On the merger of BSNL and MTNL, former DoT secretary JS Deepak told the parliamentary standing committee on information technology, “We are working on a plan… I would not say that we have a plan of merging these companies in phases.”A news from The Financial Express.

 1)BSNL, MTNL merger plan back on discussion table: After a hiatus of few years, the proposal to merge BSNL and MTNL is back on the discussion table with top officials at the telecom department once again ‘brainstorming’ on various options before the two loss-making, state-owned entities.
According to a highly-placed source in the Department of Telecom, a top-level meeting recently discussed possibility of merging both the entities that are facing financial stress due to increasing competition in the sector.
Another official said that in the first phase, BSNL is keen on picking up mobile operations of MTNL in Gurgaon, Noida and Faridabad, where it is already offering landline and broadband services.
The other option could be the acquisition of MTNL’s mobile operations in Delhi and Mumbai – the two metros it operates in. BSNL, on the other hand, operates in rest of India.
The meeting, head by the then Telecom Secretary JS Deepak, was held 2-3 weeks ago and idea is gaining ground once again. A news from economic times…

 10.02.2017 NEWS OF UNITED FORUM

The representatives of united forum of MTNL Unions and associations have met Additional secretary(T)/DOT ,Sh. N. Sivasailam today (10/02/2017) in a pre-scheduled meeting on the following agenda:—-

  1. Merger of MTNL & BSNL 

       & 2.  Merger of 50% DA effectively amounting to 78.2% as on 01.01.2007 to MTNL employees           and  pensions(pension as on combined basis)

As regards merger of MTNL  and BSNL , we have highlighted our well known points of view in this respect. We have insisted that this is a “life and death” question for MTNL and this is an issue that relates to the job security of thousands employees of MTNL and most of them are of  erstwhile DOT recruits. Additional Secretary points out that the main hurdle of such merger is that MTNL is a listed company and BSNL is 100% owned by Government. This add to the complication in deciding merger. When we draw his attention to the ways and means of such merger in the given situation as recommended  by various committees , he says that their suggestion is on the line of substantial investments by the Government as a pre-condition which may not be favoured by Government. He in turn , suggests that MTNL has inherent capacity and expertise to improve services even at this stage. The expansion of broad band connections and urgent and meaningful use of assets by way of renting out etc. hold the key to MTNL’s turn around .He has insisted that unions and associations can play pivotal role in this respect.

    As regards “Merger of 50% DA effectively amounting to 78.2% as on 01-01-2007” he informs that the proposal sent by MTNL includes the need of financial assistance by the Government for its implementation and  DOT cannot decide such matter on its own. After quite some discussions, when we insisted that in absence of implementation, MTNL employees will be permanently deprived of this part of DA neutralization, he says that DOT will send this proposal to D.P with DOT’s recommendations. He also says that left to him alone he favours implementation, but DOT alone cannot decide this. On our specific query: whether we can remain hopeful, his cryptic reply was : one should always remain hopeful.

         Meeting lasts for 1.5 hrs and ends with some positive note.

 MTNL borrowing money to meet day to day requirement: Manoj Sinha ....Loss-making telecom PSU MTNL has been hit hard by debt and it is borrowing money to meet its day-to-day requirements, Union Minister Manoj Sinha said today. “Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) is borrowing money to meet its day-to-day requirement,” Sinha said in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha. Total debt on MTNL reached Rs 19,418.23 crore at the end of December 31, 2016, from Rs 11,542.3 crore in 2012-13, according to the data shared by the minister. The debt is over six times MTNL’s annual revenue registered in 2015-16. “Due to debt burden and fund crunch, MTNL has gone slow in upgradation of equipment during last 4-5 years. One of the reasons for service quality is due to non-investment in access network of fixed lines,” Sinha said. A news from economic times…

The representatives of United forum of MTNL Unions & Associations met Member (Services) in a pre- scheduled meeting today. The agendas, e.g.(1) merger of MTNL & BSNL (2) Merger of 50%  DA effectively amounting to 78.2% as on 01.01.2007 to MTNL employees and pensioners and issues related to C.G.H.S the briefs on which were submitted  earlier, were discussed thoroughly .Issue of pro-rata pensioners  also was discussed. DDG (Estt.) was also present in the meeting.

  As regards Merger of MTNL & BSNL, Member (services) informs that Secretary / DOT is quite affirmative about this. But some consensus approach is required between the Unions and Associations of both MTNL and BSNL. On management side also from both MTNL and BSNL, some united approach is required. This helps DOT/Ministry to take decisive decision on this. At present there is a move for uniting the wireless network and services of MTNL and BSNL. But that too faces problem from different perceptions between MTNL and BSNL. As regards the issue of merger of 50% DA , Member (Services) tries to know exact financial implication both for current payment as well as for arrears. Member (Services) informs that this issue is still under the domain of PSU and advised us to deal with Add. Secretary. As regards issue of C.G.H.S Member (Services) informed that DOT is taking up the matter with Director (CGHS) , Nirman Bhawan for its implementation at Mumbai. But as regards the matter of our suggestion that enhanced rate of contributions should not be applicable for MTNL /BSNL, he is sceptical. He agrees to take up the issue with MTNL for full reimbursement of amount to the concerned pensioners against contribution. The issue of another scope of fresh pension options for the pro-rata pensioners, we have updated him the present status of the issue and requested him to use his good office so that MTNL sends the reports to DOT as called for.

 02.02.2017  GS along with Sh. V.P.Bhardwaj JGS, Sh. P.C.Sarswat Senior Vice President, Sh. K.R.Yadav CP, Sh. S.P.S.Yadav CS and Sh. Ajay Kumar CFS met with Dir. (HR &EB) on 31.01.2017 to discuss the various HR issues pending since long.

  • The issue related to some executives those who had withdrawn their pro-rata option and opted for combined pension their cases were neither settled by MTNL or CCA Delhi & Mumbai.

Dir. (HR) assured positively and sympathetically to look into  matter and asked us to submit the detail of such cases so as to settle the same.

  • Issue of review DPC and seniority case of JAOs was discussed and it was assured by him that he will ask GM(HR) for further studying the case for deciding on merit.
  • Post based promotion for all executives in time bound manner: Dir (HR) responded to our submission and ask us to provide our view point to management.
  • Restoration of additional increment on regular promotion as per EPP-2007. The case was discussed in length and it was requested that the recovery if any made in this regard must be refunded back to affected executives. (i.e Sr. SDEs/Sr. AOs & CAOs/Des).

Dir.(HR) asked us to submit the detail of such cases so that judicious decision may be taken.

  • Case of Stenographers and Hindi Officers: This case was discussed and we demanded that their promotion avenues must be brought at par with other executives.
  • Issue of promotion through LICE: we have submitted that instead of holding many examination like LICE & competitive etc at various levels i.e. AM to DM and DM to Sr manager, the executives should be promoted on time bound post based promotion as the same is being given in the senior management policy i.e. DGM to Jt. GM and JT. GM to Add. GM I & Add GM II.
  • We have also raised the issue of filling the 50 % quota of JAOs /JTOs through departmental candidates and asked management to relax the norms so as give the opportunity to non executives those who meet the educational qualifications e.g. Draft man/TTA/WM.
  • We have also requested to management that opportunities are to be given to well qualified employees in promotion at various levels. The reorientation of employees has to be made regular process in training center of MTNL so as to meet out the manpower requirement of MTNL with the existing manpower of MTNL.

NDMC ties up with MTNL to offer free Wi-Fi in Delhi:

With its ambitious Wi-Fi project in Connaught Place and Khan Market losing popularity due to poor connectivity, New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has now tied up with MTNL in a fresh attempt at offering free internet connectivity in its areas.

NDMC had partnered with Tata Teleservices in 2014 to provide the service in inner and outer circles of Connaught Place, one of the significant business and leisure centres in the city.

The civic body had claimed that the service is the largest in India. Similarly, NDMC had partnered with Tata Docomo to provide the facility in Khan Market.

At present, the service can be availed by 5,000 people with an average speed of 512 Kbps. The first 20 minutes within a 24-hour period are entirely free after which scratch cards can be purchased in various denominations in the market.

However, visitors and traders have been complaining for months that the service is not functioning seamlessly, a claim confirmed by the civic authorities.

“We had earlier launched the services with full preparation, but the plan did not work well. Initially, it worked fine but the connectivity has been slow lately,” a senior NDMC official told . A news from Economic Times….

Members of WS unit placed their burning issues being faced by them in day to day working  some of them are as follows:

  1. Many examples were given where senior officers are  forcing executives to do work without proper availability of vehicles / proper means of transport for moving from office to different sites.
  2.  Members were very furious about role of Director Technical , as  in different cases he is directing officers of GM/PGM level to issue warnings to non ITS officers .
  3. Members raised issue of feasibility of the new tower projects of 3G in the era of 4G Etc of higher technologies.
  4. Rent of  existing sites are not being revised as per market rates and in turn owners are forcing MTNL to withdraw the BTS from their premises. Which is creating further black holes in dying network of WS.
  5. Maintenance of existing BTS with expired Batteries/Gen Sets and shortage of different hardware are further hurdles of the WS network.
  6. Some members raised the issue of non settlement of Pay anomaly.                                                                                                             Thereafter all Circle Office bearers and GS addressed the gathering and ensured that each difficulty being faced by them will be taken by TEAM with Management at appropriate levels. It will be ensured that members may work coolly in tension free environment for the best out put in the favor of this great organisation. It was appealed to members that CHQ conference which is likely to be conducted in mid of April 2017 should be made a historical event by participating in hundred percent strength and by providing financial contribution.
