Government of India approves mandatory utilisation of BSNL/MTNL Network by all Ministries, Departments of Government of India, CPSEs, Central Autonomous Bodies for availing Internet/Broadband, Landline and lease line services. Accordingly all Ministries and departments have been issued directions to issue necessary instructions including CPSEs/Autonomous Bodies under their control to utilise the capacities of BSNL/MTNL for the aforesaid services. Click here for the order of DoT in this regard.
It will be pertinent to mention that AIGETOA has been the flag bearer of this campaign having raised this issue with Hon’ble PM, Hon’ble MoC, Various MPs, Hon’ble Secretary DoT. It is understood that AIGETOA submissions have been one of the enablers of this campaign with GoI approving the revival package for BSNL/MTNL on 23rd October. We have been consistently following up on issuance of these directions and raised the matter during meeting with Hon’ble MoC also. Unlike other claimants for these achievements who claimed credit after the approval, we have been raising these issues much before the revival package was approved. All are requested to go through our submissions. It can be seen that almost all the major suggestions have been considered by Government of India. This latest instruction is another feather in the cap of AIGETOA.
