BSNL: Bouncing Back?

It was a make-or-break year for BSNL but the company fared very well. On revenue terms, the company has shown a drop in revenue from `29,688 crore in FY11 to `28,447 crore in FY12 but on the PAT (profit after tax) front, the company has improved significantly by netting `8,347 crore vis-a-vis `6,384 crore in FY11.

The company has done extremely well on mobile and NLD services. On the mobile front, the company has increased its revenue by 31% to net `6,482 crore. With respect to NLD services, the company has increased its revenue by `698 crore to net `5,646 crore. On mobile services, the company is doing extremely well and 3G services are now available in 963 cities and the services is available to all its mobile customers. Presently, non-voice contributes around 13% of the overall mobile revenue and the company plans to increase it by entering into non-exclusive agreements with VAS players.

On the capex front, the company has invested `5,000 crore in FY12 for ongoing GSM, broadband, and fiber-to-the-home projects but this year the company plans to invest `9,086 crore and more focus is on mobile and broadband services. Recently, BSNL has finalized 10.15 mn GSM line order to ZTE worth `3,200 crore for northern and southern zones. The order is planned to be executed within one year for both 2G and 3G services and will involve planning, financing, engineering, supply, installation and testing, commissioning and annual maintenance of GSM lines.

On the broadband front, the company is the undisputed leader with more than 9 mn subscribers thanks to the timely availability of equipment and introduction of VAS services like games on-demand, music on-demand, education on-demand, and others.

The company has also launched BWA services in rural areas of the country for connecting rural CSCs (common service centers) and village panchayats for the government program. Presently, WiMax service is operational in 169 cities of Kerala and 50 cities of Punjab. In future, the company doesn't want to operate BWA service in all the circles but plans to be selective.

The company has been identified for NOFN project due to its reach and fiber resources. It has 700,000 km of optical fiber routes countrywide and a major part of it is the rural areas. This network largely overlaps all other blocks of the country. BSNL's fiber connectivity is already available in 6,000 panchayats out of 2.5 lakh panchayats in the country.


On the enterprise part, BSNL has transformed a lot. The company is aggressively looking at the enterprise market in a big way by imparting training to the teams, focusing on solutions, and account expansion.

The company is providing end-to-end communication solutions to government departments, PSUs, banks, airlines, and corporates in big way. Some of the projects bagged by the company include: CCTNS project, department of justice project for connecting all the courts in India, and NME-ICT project for providing internet bandwidth to colleges.

In terms of numbers, BSNL's enterprise has done well as the company has bagged orders worth `2,985 crore and plans to achieve revenues of `3,561 crore in FY13. To give a big push to the enterprise division, the company has established 9 IDCs (internet data centers) to be used for co-location, hosting, managed services and cloud services along with Sai InfoSystems and Dimension Data.

In its quest to generate additional revenue, the company has signed master service agreements with 9 operators on a pan-India basis. Till date, the company has leased out 1,526 sites and plans to lease 3,000 BTS tower sites in FY13. Apart from this the company is also looking at utilization of land and building for call centers/BPOs, utilization of telecom factory infrastructure, broadband connectivity to schools, establishing Wi-Fi network, and leasing out CDMA/EV-DO network.

It's a good beginning for the company as the Indian government has identified BSNL as one of the three players to deploy NOFN (national optical fiber network) due to its reach and fiber resources. The company is awaiting commercial clearance for doing a pilot in Arain Block of Ajmer district of Rajasthan which will cover 30 panchayats. All this holds lot of promise for BSNL in future.

Invitation




 ஊழல் செய்யும் அதிகாரிகளை பொது இடத்தில் சுட்டுத் தள்ள வேண்டும்
-ஆந்திர அமைச்சர் வெங்கடேஷ்.

அப்ப ஊழல் அரசியல்வாதிகளை என்ன செய்யலாம்?
 EDITORIAL  (CHQ)


BSNL's Rules for Recognition


The BSNL came into existence on 1st October 2000 but could not evolve its own Rules
for recognition of non-executive unions as yet. The unions accepted the code of Discipline
meant only for central Trade unions as the company was then not in position to frame its
rules. In course of 4th verification the Dy. Chief Labour Commissioner who attended the
meeting on behalf of CLC stated that the PSU can formulate its own rules in consultation with
the unions.


The "SR Cell" due to obvious reasons delayed and finally bulldozed the demand of majority
of unions in the name of consensus forgetting and deliberately ignoring the difference between
unanimity and consensus. This led to litigations and filing of Writ Petitions at Chennai and
Ernakulam High Courts by NFTE BSNL and NU BSNL workers (FNTO) respectively. The
Hon'ble High Court at Ernakulum has now issued the following directions to CLC and the
management for change in rule.


1) The third respondent is directed to convene a meeting of the Trade unions of the
employees as well as the management of the second respondent and to ascertain whether
there is a consensus among the unions for effecting changes in the COD for conducting a
referendum for the purpose of recognizing the Trade Unions in the establishment. The meeting shall be convened as expeditiously as possible and at any rate within a period of two
months of the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment.


2) The third respondent is further directed of forward the proceedings of such meeting if
there is a consensus, for the purpose of being considered by the Ministry of Labour to effect
necessary changes in the COD, with the consent of the management.
Prior to this a significant development has taken place as the recognised union which had

earlier opposed for change in rule also demanded that the BSNL should frame its own rules
of recognition. Thus the unions representing more than 90% employees are in favour of
BSNL's rules for proper and adequate redressal of staff grievances and the management
should neither ignore nor bulldoze this in the interest of industrial peace and harmony. Multiple
unions with full facilities are functioning for thousands of executives without even single verification even after evolving of rules for recognition. Is this not blatant discrimination against
non-executives.


Majority should bear in mind not to crush the minority but the minority (unions representing 0.06% employees) should not veto the aspirations of almost entire non-executive
employees for new rules. Workers want that their grievances and sufferings be alleviated
through participation of maximum number of workers in the Negotiating Machineries and all
should realise this.
News in Brief:

14-07-2012 : High handedness against SNEA and its leaders: As earlier reported BSNL HQR has transferred its central leaders including President and GS for Trade union activities. The leaders are facing Rule 14 Chargesheet also. Not only this the BSNL HQR has issued orders that SNEA leaders should not be given any meeting by officers. This is high handedness. The NFTE is firmly with SNEA against the victimisation. Trade unions in BSNL have to unite and resist such action. 


2. Trais’s limit of 200 SMS on a SIM cancelled: Delhi High Court in its Judgement on 13th July has cancelled the limit of 200 SMS daily on a Sim fixed by Trai. Thus cap of 200 SMS per day on a sim is removed for personal use. Fixing of limit of SMS is violative of right of expression of views, the court held . 


3. GSM industry body COAI today said regulator TRAI's analysis that mobile tariff will rise by 15 paise if spectrum is auctioned at its recommended price is "flawed" and "inconsistent with the market realities". 
 An industry body representing mobile phone companies offering services on the CDMA platform asked the telecoms department to take back excess airwaves held by GSM service providers and put them up for auction in addition to 13.75 MHz that will be put up for bidding. Adding that DoT should send notices demanding Rs 36,993 crore from incumbent GSM telcos that have unduly benefited from holding airwaves beyond the contracted limit of 6.2 MHz

பாட்டில் குடிநீருக்கு, 15 ரூபாய் அல்லது ஐஸ் கிரீமிற்கு 20 ரூபாய் செலவழிக்கத் தயாராக இருக்கும், நம் நாட்டில் உள்ள மத்திய தர வகுப்பினர், அரிசிக்கோ அல்லது கோதுமைக்கோ, கிலோவுக்கு ஒரு ரூபாய் விலை ஏற்றினால், கூச்சல் போடுகின்றனர் -சிதம்பரம்

உங்கள் பொற்கால ஆட்சியில் எல்லா இந்தியர்களும் இந்தக் கையில் பாட்டில் குடிநீரும் அந்தக் கையில் ஐஸ்க்ரீமுமாகத்தானே அலைகிறார்கள். உங்கள் குரூர நகைச்சுவைக்கு ஒரு எல்லையே இல்லையா?
