Subject : Government to consider bsnl/mtnl closure
Government considers closing some loss-making state firms like BSNL, MTNL, Air India. Click here for Media News
Government officials are to meet today to consider proposals to close struggling state-backed operators Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL), the Economic Times writes. The officials are to review options for the ten biggest loss-making state-held entities, a list which also includes Air India, Hindustan Photofilms and Hindustan Fertilisers Corporation and was responsible for a combined net loss of INR245 billion (USD4.01 billion) in the 2012/2013 financial year. Whilst extreme measures such as closure are on the table, the officials are also to look into the potential to revive the ailing businesses, through capital infusion, joint ventures and management changes.
Plans to shut down any of the firms will face fierce opposition from trade unions, however. A spokesperson for Bharatiya Mazadoor Sangh (Indian Workers’ Union BMS) was quoted as saying that it will work with other unions to block the move: ‘We are coordinating with all central trade unions on the matter. We are fortunate that all trade unions are on the same page when it comes to these issues.’ Action from trade unions have long made the situation at BSNL worse, obstructing efforts to restructure the telco, fearing lay-offs.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi rolls back BSNL, MTNL merger. Click here for Media News
Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has decided not to merge state-owned telecom companies MTNL and BSNL, a move that could well be termed as the first by the present NDA government to overturn a major decision of the previous UPA government. Sources in the government said that instead of infusing fresh capital or merging them to revive the cash-strapped and loss-making BSNL and MTNL, the Prime Minister has asked the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to consider a proposal for the outright purchase of the optic fibre cable (OFC) network of the former, which is the largest in the country. “Once owned by the DoT, the OFC network could be used for early rollout of the government’s ambitious ‘Digital India’ programme,” they added.
The government’s “Digital India” programme aims to provide broadband connectivity to all 20 lakh village panchayats and also build wifi-enabled “smart cities”. By a very rough estimate, made recently, the government would need an 18-lakh to 20-lakh route km OFC network to take broadband all across the country.

Subject : update on ldce 2014
Update on LDCE 2014 :
Analyzing the relevancy and toughness of the syllabus in last LDCE held in year-2012, AIGETOA has been continuously pursuing for the change in syllabus and notification of LDCE from JTO (T) to SDE (T) ever since the results of last LDCE was announced. The same has also been recognized by management side in the recently held open session of AGM at Hyderabad. Very soon, the LDCE is going to be notified and we are in touch with management for inclusion of all the vacancies till date i.e. up to 2013-14.
We have analyzed the syllabus and are of the view that now LDCE can be cleared even by going through the Preparatory material available at BSNL training sites. We suggest members that instead of falling into trap of some persons or a group who will definitely come up with the preparatory materials at a cost, they may go through the induction, phase-1, phase-2 and other material available on the training center websites and avoid unnecessary wastage of their hard earned money. We also request members please don’t be trapped in legalities and unnecessary court cases on call of some so called legal experts who have filed series of court cases but could not win even single cases. This will only result in delay and nothing else.
