He mentioned that he want
to attend the meeting and convey certain message to the
members. He stated that you are the people who are
working due to which even he is also getting his salary.
All of you are very much aware of the BSNL condition and
with the stiff competition, BSNL has survived till now,
and will survive in future also. After formation of the
New Govt. attitude of all the officers are in positive
direction. BSNL was there, is there and will be there.
Lot of things has to be done by all of us. He mentioned
that our MOC want to do every possible to revive the
BSNL. He mentioned that not only BSNL is in loss all
other operators are in loss. He stated that BSNL has to
stand its own. We have done a lot and will have to do a
lot in future also. BSNL is having fully skilled people
at all levels. We had been selected through competitive
examination and operators are qualified. We have the
capability to come out of the crisis. What is to be done
is the question now. He mentioned we all are getting
salary every month. We have to ensure to generate 8
hours duties to our subordinates. There is hierarchy at
all level and everyone is assigned with one or the
other. He mentioned that on every morning think for 10
minutes about what is going to do on the day for the
organization. Taking decision in delay will destroy the
position. Whether anyone see or ask, it would be the
moral duty of ours to carry out 8 hours duty. He
reminded the working of old years with old technology
throughout the day and night. He mentioned that he has
seen the hardworking of our employees. Changes had
happed due to the change in technology and structure.
What is to be done by you is not decided by anyone.
Please discuss with subordinate and superiors and try to
find out a solution and by whom. It has been noticed
that even shifting of staff / officers from first floor
to 2nd floor is not acceptable by our employees. We have
sufficient time and all the officers at the level of GMs
are given the target of sale of SIMs, without any
hesitation and it has started given result. Please
create an environment which will motivate self as well
as subordinates and colleagues. The staff is more
experience and the issue is there is no demand as
compared to 10 years back. BSNL does not need any
publicity, as the customer are known about BSNL.
Requested to encourage all and try to generate market
demand. We have more than 3000 crores outstanding in EB
as rightly pointed by your President Shri.Sivakumar and
in CFA & CM Verticals also we are having an outstanding
of Rs.3000 Crores. By visiting the customer premises,
even if you could collect one rupee, it will give you
satisfaction. He mentioned that we have sufficient staff
and by simply dialing from office cannot realize the
outstanding. Visit to customer premises will give the
the competition expected in future will be very much
tough even in EB segment. Only BSNL is having land line
connections and no other operators have land line
connection and therefore, BSNL is only going to affect.
Whatever proposals are send, the same will be approved
within two days. We can make any plans or vouchers at
par with the competitors.

rock to settle the grievances and issues. He is always
behind the issues and suggested to take life lessons
from Com. Prahlad Rai. He expected the contribution of
