Business Standard:: Ailing state-run telecom companies Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) are yet to recover over Rs 5,000 crore from subscribers as dues for non-payment of bills. For BSNL, which operates all over the country, barring Delhi and Mumbai, the amount is Rs 4,200-4,500 crore. MTNL, which offers services in Delhi and Mumbai, has already appointed agents to recover about Rs 800 crore, which has been pending since 2007. An MTNL official said, "The dues arise because of an individual subscriber buying two SIM cards or there is a change in address." BSNL and MTNL have been losing revenues and market share steadily amid an intense price war in the telecom industry.
BSNL offers to surrender BWA spectrum in 17 circles

Draft National Telecom Policy 2011: India semiconductor fab is key
EE Herald:: The Draft National Telecom Policy 2011 points out that India is heading for a strong and committed local electronics design and manufacturing. Among the objectives of the policy, is the promotion of the domestic production of telecommunication equipment to meet 80% Indian telecom sector demand through domestic manufacturing with a value addition of 65% by the year 2020. To ensure focused indigenous development in the telecom sector, efforts would be concentrated towards a definite policy direction by creating a suitable road-map to align technology, demand, standards and regulations, after considered evaluation of candidate technologies and the emerging trends. Also, to ensure security in an increasingly insecure cyber space, indigenously manufactured multi-functional SIM cards with indigenously designed chips incorporating specific laid down standards are considered critical.

Participations by our team: Besides the report by circle secy, our team participated in the following discussions:
- VRS: There was serious discussion on this issue. Some members favours the scheme some opposes. General Secy briefed that as a trade union policy all Associations do oppose VRS as it is never a conducive affair for any company because of (1) the expert hands do drain out. (2) The company suffers financial burden. (3) The works of company hampers qualitatively and out-sourcing is a must. (4) Opposition to VRS will compel the company to enhance the quantum of offers etc. Our circle secretary gave the following opinion: VRS is a no doubt a lucrative offer for members but it is a sweet killing system of golden-egg-hatching hen for the employee. It will no doubt reduce the best working hands- the working strength (members) and thus the trade unionism, Associationism will automatically die out. Since working force will be less, Association will not be having strength to redress the service quality of employee with the company. Administration of company will exercise monopoly. Maximum work will be done by outsourcing. Thus it will lead to “Privatisation” that the department has been really trying since long. Days were there when privatization of a company in the international forum was helping its growth but those days have gone as seen from the decline economy of developed countries. Thus it is advised to oppose the VRS tooth and nail.
After deliberations from all the circle secretaries and CWC members it was decided to oppose VRS but the strike call given on 10th November be deferred to January because of present situations of BSNL.

In any case our Association does not allow any further lingering on the issue.
