On 16 July 2024, GS Com. Shaji V, Dy GS Com. J K Patel, and Advisor Com. Swarup Chakraborty met with DIR CM BSNL Board Shri Sandeep Govil. We had an extensive discussion about the issues faced in field units with the Sanchar Aadhaar System by M/s Intense during the activation of new SIMs. This issue has been especially pressing following a 25% tariff hike by other operators, which has led to an influx of customers to BSNL for new SIMs. Many of our Circle Secretaries have shared the resulting difficulties faced in field units, which require immediate attention from BSNL.

DIR CM patiently listened to all our submissions and shared our concerns. DIR CM replied that we will need to have the capacity to handle at least 200,000 customers daily under the very favourable CM market conditions for BSNL. The Sanchar Aadhaar system, first procured in 2016, was designed for 60,000-70,000 hits/day. Presently, BSNL is experiencing 250,000 hits/day.

DIR CM mentioned that the management, including CMD BSNL, is fully aware of the situation and is committed to taking all necessary measures to upgrade the Sanchar Aadhaar system to cope with the current demands.Many video conferences (VCs) have been conducted with the concerned vendors to upgrade the software and hardware. Two VCs are planned tonight (16.07.2024) at 8:30 PM and 9:00 PM with the vendors to address the issues as thoroughly as possible. AIBSNLEA could meet DIR CM around 8:15 PM, just after his meeting with CMD BSNL, where these issues were discussed.

DIR CM also shared that the purchase order (PO) for the induction of the new Sanchar Aadhaar system, capable of handling sufficient hit capacity, is in its final stage.

AIBSNLEA requested DIR CM to share the committed efforts being undertaken by BSNL management with the field ambassadors of BSNL, who are directly facing the challenges while dealing with customers. This would help boost and motivate their morale. DIR CM appreciated the suggestion and assured that this would be done. DIR CM also commended the employees and our channel partners who are patiently rising to the occasion to provide services to the new customers.
