He informed that from next fiscal, Performance Related Pay (PRP) will be implemented in all the Circles & the PLI will not be distributed uniformly.

Non-Executives have been given 6 months pay advance, their wage negotiation is yet to be completed. He assured that the issues raised by GS, AIBSNLEA will be looked into. To increase the profit of BSNL Broadband connections increase is required. 22 million connections are being added this year. Leasing of infrastructure will earn more revenue, BTS should work 24 hours. The additional leased lines/band width in those areas where lot of potential is there, we need lot of marketing infrastructure, earlier we were not tuned to marketing area. BSNL?s manpower is 3 lacs employees and if 20% work force is involved in it best results can be achieved. Regarding project plans and developmental activities, CGMs should start similar efforts in consultation of Unions / Associations. Sales outlets increase is required. More efforts are required for improvement in services. No delay for rectification in faults. Why BTS should remain faulty? Network updation is a dynamic process. Constant monitoring is required to provide. Quality of service can be improved with the available resources. 90-95% customers will switch over to BSNL from private operators if the fault duration is less. Close monitoring is required in a pragmatic manner. Customer will remain with us. Capacity is utilized, it will give more revenue. Rajasthan Circle is good Circle and giving good revenue. PRP will be paid on 3 profits i.e. 5% of the overall profit of the company, Circles/SSAs and personal performance for the FY 2009-10, 2010-11. PRP is the strong motivation to good performance.

Shri M.L.Pareek, Retd. CAO, Circle President was felicitated on his retirement on superannuation on 31.07.2009. He extended vote of thanks. The open session continued for 5 hours from 16:30 hrs to 21:30 hrs. The conference hall was jam packed. Click Here for Glimpses
