GS, AGS(HQ) met Director(CM), BSNL Board and discussed
(a) Roll out of GSM N/W under Phase-7 Plan: Director(CM) mentioned that in North Zone about 22% GSM equipment have been roled out. In East Zone Bihar, Odisha, Assam, CTD and WB Circles APO have been placed but in NE-I, NE-II and Jharkhand Circles APOs are yet to be placed. In West Zone, ITI is the vendor but could not supply the equipment, hence yesterday only Director ITI came to discuss the matter and we expressed our anguish against delay, since ITI supporting vendors i.e. M/s Alcatel and M/s Lucent etc are not giving support. Even cards are not being repaired. However, Director ITI assured to get repaired all the cards within 15 days time and GSM equipment will also be supplied in time. South Zone already sufficient equipment is available.
He also expressed dissatisfaction against the -ve growth of GSM lines in five Telecom Circles i.e. West Bengal, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Kolkata and Chhatisgarh wherein the growth is only 3-4% against required growth of 7% whereas many Circles are making GSM lines growth more than 22% which has been appreciated by BSNL C.O.
He opined that BSNL having about 62,000 M/W towers should create one infra company in collaboration with some Private company which can earn minimum Rs. 1500 Crs per annum like other Telecom service providers who has created infra companies. He wanted the feedback and support of BSNL Unions/Associations in this regard.
