Sam Pitroda"s Committee"s Report for BSNL-imp. Inf. by Ashok Hindocha M-9426201999


Scrap GSM tender, go for service model: Pitroda panel to BSNL
www.bsnlnewsbyashokhindocha.blogspot.com M-9426201999
The Sam Pitroda committee has recommended that public sector Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) scrap its Rs 30,000-crore tender to procure GSM equipment for 92 million lines and switch instead to a managed services model on the lines of its private rivals Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Essar.
This is said to be one of the world’s biggest tenders in the category. As Ericsson remains the sold bidder in the race, it violates the government’s procurement rules that call for a tendering race and hence BSNL should not go ahead with the order, the panel has said.
A controversy over the deal had started when intelligence agencies disqualified the Chinese company Huawei from participating in the tender on security concerns and Ericsson became the sole bidder.
BSNL sources said the committee has recommended that the company should expand its network through the “outsourcing infrastructure” model.
Under this, the installation and maintenance of the networks is outsourced to suppliers such as Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Network and the payment is done on the basis of actual usage of a network.
The operator makes very little upfront payment to the equipment supplier and can divert funds to adding subscribers.
Communications Minister A. Raja, who confirmed the development, had wanted that BSNL to place orders with Ericsson and had even approached Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for this after an objection by the Chief Vigilance Commissioner, the anti-corruption watchdog.
The two government nominees on the BSNL board also raised objections to placing the order with Ericsson.
“The government decision of not allowing BSNL to procure Huawei equipment has stalled the whole procurement process,” Raja told Hindustan Times. “Now, it is claimed that Ericsson has become the single bidder, which is not true as Ericsson was one of the four bidders when the bids were submitted bids.”
The Prime Minister referred the issue to the Sam Pitroda committee. Housing Development Finance Corp (HDFC) Chairman Deepak Parekh and DoT Secretary P.J. Thomas are other members of the committee.
“We are not aware of this report,” said BSNL CMD Kuldeep Goyal. “However, we are prepared to meet the immediate needs of the company.”

wimax New Technology latest Devlopment-inf. by Ashok Hindocha M-9426201999




www.bsnlnewsbyashokhindocha.blogspot.com


At the Korea-India Communications Convergence Forum and Exhibition held in New Delhi on Friday, industry representatives discussed the importance of mobile WiMax in today's times. WiMax is the next generation wireless technology that enables high-speed mobile internet access across several devices including notebook PCs, handsets, smartphones and consumer electronics.

The session on 'New Paradigm in Mobile WiMax' was addressed by Hung Song, vice-president, global marketing group, Samsung Electronics, and Pradeep Nagpal, general manager, BSNL national network planning, CDMA and WiMax.

Nagpal spoke on BSNL's achievements in the field of WiMax. He said, "We want to provide broadband services in rural areas using WiMax technology. We currently have 4.6 million broadband subscribers, which is 55.5 per cent of the market. We believe that WiMax is going to bridge the digital divide between urban and rural areas."

He said that the key drivers for BSNL's deployment of WiMax are - intense competition faced by the telecom industry with falling average revenue per user (ARPU); growth and need for data services, which will form a new revenue stream for service providers and the government's encouragement.

Nagpal also highlighted the work being done by BSNL in this field. He said the company, along with Huawei, a Chinese telco, is implementing a project to set up 700 base stations in Punjab, which is expected to be complete by March this year.

Song said that India ranks 54 in the Networked Readiness Index of Asia (2008-2009), according to a study by the World Economic Forum and that the country currently has very low broadband penetration. He threw light on a World Bank report which said that a 10 per cent increase in broadband penetration boosts a country's economic growth by 1.3 per cent. He linked the importance of broadband to a country's development and remarked that if the broadband penetration in emerging markets was at par with Western Europe's, the GDP in these markets would increase by $300-420 billion, apart from more than 10-14 million new jobs being generated.

Song also spoke on Korea's adoption of WiMax technology, highlighting its use in the country's subway system, Konkuk University, ROK Air Force bases, and in ambulances and hospitals.

[09.12.2009]Historic Agreement signed today, (9-12-2009), on settlement of Pay Anomalies/Aberrations:- Due to point to point fixation of pay on conversion from CDA to IDA pay scales on 1-10-2000, in several cases the seniors in higher pay scales got less than their juniors in lower pay scales.

In MTNL, it couldn’t be settled since there was no rule to settle it. In BSNL, when NFTE took up the case, the management convinced them that it is not possible to settle these anomalies.

After getting recognition, the BSNLEU and United Forum took up the issue seriously and a Committee was constituted with management and union representatives for settlement of these anomalies. The Committee gave its report for settling these anomalies as per Revised Pay Rules applicable for Central Government Employees and it was sent for the approval of DoT.

The DoT sent back the file with the objection that the Revised Pay Rules were not applicable for settling these anomalies/aberrations since it was conversion from CDA to IDA Pay Scales and was not pay revision.

Thereafter a Committee was constituted under the chairmanship of Shri P.K.Misra, DGM (Estt.) Consisting of representatives of the management and Union to recommend how to settle these anomalies. The Committee met several times and finally an agreement is signed to day (9-12-2009) between the Official and Staff sides. The agreement is that the difference in the pay between the junior in the lower pay scale and the senior in the higher pay scale as on 1-10-2000 will be paid as Personal Pay to the Senior.

The Staff Side in the Committee was represented by Com V.A.N.Namboodiri GS BSNLEU and Com P.Asokababu AGS BSNLEU. <<< Copy of the agreement >>>

My Name is Khan sets UK box office record
By Shabnam Mahmood
BBC Asian Network



Khan is one of Bollywood's biggest stars
My Name is Khan has become Bollywood's most successful box office opener in the UK.

The movie was released in a storm of controversy after a row between its star - Shah Rukh Khan - and Shiv Sena, a hardline Hindu party in India.

But it has already grossed more than £936,000 since hitting screens and entered the UK Box Office charts at number six.

The film also took $2.3m (£1.2m) in the US over the four-day holiday weekend.

Khan had angered Shiv Sena by saying Pakistani players should be included in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 cricket competition, which starts next month.

UK TOP 10
1. Valentine's Day
2. Avatar
3. The Wolfman
4. The Princess And The Frog
5. Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief
6. My Name Is Khan
7. Invictus
8. A Single Man
9. Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
10. Astro Boy

Shiv Sena, an organisation which regards itself as a defender of what it sees as traditional Hindu moral values, tried to disrupt the film's release and consequently it opened amid tight security in Mumbai.

Khan's wife, Gauri, who co-produced the movie, said: "People have liked the movie which we're really happy to see and it's not because of the controversy."

My Name is Khan is a rare Indian film to get the backing of Hollywood distributors, 20th Century Fox.

In the film, Khan plays a Muslim with Asperger's syndrome whose life changes after the 11 September attacks in the US.

He stars opposite Kajol, who plays a single Hindu mother who falls in love with Khan.

The film was the fourth highest new entry in the UK behind Valentine's Day, The Wolfman and Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

Valentine's Day went straight in at number one as it grossed £3.7m and, although it averaged £8,640 across 432 sites, My Name is Khan averaged £10,291 across 91 sites.

The previous record for a Bollywood film in its opening period in the UK was held by Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna which grossed nearly £750,000, and also starred Shah Rukh.

Note: The Google Promotion Award Team has discovered a huge number of double
claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties
about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this,
these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The
Google Promotion Award Team has reached a decision from headquarters that
any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the
canceling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double
claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the
informer to the double claimer about the lottery.So you are hereby strongly
advised once more to keep your winnings confidential until you claim your prize.
Sincerely,
Dr. Frank Smith.
