He expressed his gratitude for inviting him and giving an opportunity to express his views.  The main issue of BSNL today is its revival and every one of us is struggling for it.  He mentioned that various policies of the Govt. and the failure of the management to take appropriate action at the required level is to reason for the fate of BSNL as on today. Change in work culture needs interaction.    There are changes in the insurance, banking sector after corporatization which is not taken place in the BSNL. 

Shri K C G K Pillai, Director (F), BSNL, expressed his sincere thanks for inviting and allowing addressing and complimented the wonderful arrangement.   He pointed out that when the association can arrange such a wonderful function, why we are lacking from the service.    Don't allow the network to erode.  It is high time to think about it.  He mentioned about the financial status of the company and the amount of loss incurred by the BSNL.  He mentioned that in case you are not improving it will be difficult for every one of us to run the company.  Even banks are not ready to give loan to BSNL as on today.  None of the competitors' revenue has gone down except BSNL.  Do the required efforts to ensure that the revenue goes up tremendously not by 1% or 2%.  We have to find out the way to earn and increase the revenue by creating a passion.  There are always complaints that there is no materials, whether we are utilising the existing materials already in the field is also to be think of.  BSNL management is also responsible for the situation.  As regards the DPCs of Accounts Personnel, the work has already commenced and we are equally concerned about your promotion and assured to give better result. But even when BSNL is willing to give the benefits, there is no fund available and management is also helpless in this regard.  Now the time is to give instead of asking anything from the management.  He warned that if the situation does not improve, the day is not far, you may have to struggle for the salary.  Let us do our part and pray the God to Save the BSNL.  Let us pray that the god give strength to work hard and save the BSNL.   BSNL is not even in the status of No.2 in any of the circles.

Shri N K Gupta, Director (CFA), BSNL  thanked every one.  He mentioned that BSNL is a good organization and there is no need to panic.  BSNL is a company with huge workforce.  The support of the Govt. is also required.  Management is also taking up various matters with the DoT and Govt. and the things are moving in positive direction.  It may get delayed.  People are not bothered about the landline and broadband which is the main source of income. Presently the status is 4% positive of landline together with broadband.  In case of every one of us put more efforts, we can further increase the revenue.  The fault rectification is not satisfactory.  He mentioned that the situation of getting the faults rectified within the hours of talking by Senior officers has to change and it should happen automatically.  There is a large scale disconnection of landline and broadband which is to be arrested by providing better and immediate service to the customers.  The lease circuits is also going to  be integrated with the CDR which will give better monitoring and the lease circuits which is more in Maharashtra needs more attention.  There are difficulties by implementing the ERP and request to bear with it.  There are many advantages of ERP system once it is implemented on PAN India basis.    There are large number of master less cases which is the direct revenue leakage which needs to be stopped.  NGN tender is also in the final stage and the system will also give many advantages which has huge work to do.  FTTH is to be popularized which has better tariff than the ADSL and the capacity to be fully utilized.  Utilise the Wimax capacity to the maximum extend which is going to be moved to urban areas.  BSNL management is always thinking very much ahead of anybody else.  BSNL is only having IMS system which no other operators have with them.  He wish all success to the and the wish the energy

Shri R.K. Upadhaya, C.M.D., BSNL,  He expressed that this gathering is the back bone  of the BSNL.  having more than 80% of the workforce in the Civil / Electrical / Architect unit is the middle management and members of the AIBSNLEA.  Welcomed Mr. Sapkal  as a guest and acknowledged his contribution.  He expressed his gratitude by inviting him for the  function and giving an opportunity to address the large gathering and middle management.  He also expressed that his is privileged to address all the trade union leaders.

He expressed that it is seen that you are conducting the meeting upto midnight for the interest of the organization.   Every one of us are aware that customer service is the main aspect and we are also aware that what we are doing.   He mentioned that you should be proud to be a part of the BSNL.   When 10-15 million connections were adding in the industry, we could not take benefit of it due to the lack of tender and equipment.  BSNL was not allowed GSM service upto 6 years and introduction of GSM service by BSNL has reduced the market tariff and we become no.1 in the country.  He opined that had we procured the equipment in time, the situation would have been different.  He mentioned that we have to learn from the past.  We have been demoralized very much as the presentation of Director (F) is true to some extend,  Govt. may help.  But do you want to be a part of the company working on the mercy of the Govt.  There are lakhs of employees through out the country and the family is living with the earnings from the BSNL.   It can give a livelihood only by our efforts. 

He mentioned that AIBSLEA and other unions / associations have been given freedom to meet the CMD at any time by re-arranging the other appointment.  He also mentioned that he got  an opportunity to know about the activities of the company through these leaders, due to which remedial action can be initiated by the management. 

BNSL is the number one company to bring the best and latest technology of telecom. Service in the country.  There is no alternative of landline and there is least competition in this field.  Though we have improved a lot, there is a need of lot more to improve in marketing and EB.  We have 38000 digital telephone exchanges in the country.  Where is the enthusiasm when we were commissioning the exchange within hours and meeting demand online.  GSM service has reduced such   there was lot of difficulties in system of procurement of equipment and the efforts have yielded in finalizing the tenders with the help and support of you people.  We become success in floating almost all the tenders.  The procurement large quantity equipment have been streamlined which has boosted the morale.

The TDM based telephone exchanges are to be modernized for which IMS based NGN equipment procured and the equipment started arriving.  Requested all to support the BSNL management in fulfilling the it's task.  Revival of landline is the most needed task where there is no heavy competition. We have to remain in mobile service also to remain in the field.  BSNL management required the support and co-operation of every one of you to fulfill the commissioning of NGN switches and maintain and improve the landline service. 

The old system of maintaining the landline has to be adopted, as the landline is the only business for BSNL to survive and earn the profit.  Every one of you are leaders and middle management.  You should be proud of you to be educated

BSNL is a more model employer, we have inherited many problems due to the conversion of Govt. set  and up to BSNL.  13 years of period is too less for the company to grow.   The monopoly of telecom in the world has broken and over a period of time of 10 years.    We don't want to be history and want to be remembered.  We will fight together and the HR issues will be resolved by the management as requested by the G.S. AIBSNLEA.   We request your leaders and to take their help in putting the demand to the Govt.   There is a good relation with the administrative ministry (DoT) and co-ordination between the BSNL and MTNL.

52% of the earning are paid towards the pay to the employees.  In order to maintain the system and pay the salary only pure telecom revenue will not be sufficient. There are proposal of proper utilization of towers and land and properties. 

It is sure that the condition is very bad.  But the losses are reduced it is an indication that improvement is possible.  It is important that all is not lost, there is a lot to go.   He mentioned that instead of pointing on somebody else, analyze that what you are doing is correct and need any change, if so do it.  Be pride on you, we are there with you.

Com. K.A. Mohire, President, AIBSNLEA MH Circle expressed vote of thanks to one and all for making  Open Session a Grand Success.
