BSNL launches landline video calling service in city

The BSNL on Tuesday launched its video telephony service in Pune, after its successful launch in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat in collaboration with Sai Infosystems India ltd (SIS). With this, people will be able to view each other while calling on landline phone. The launch is a value addition to the BSNL landline service and is aimed particularly at the enterprise segment and international callers even as the telecom company said that it was also targeting the other customer segments.

As a special case, the service will be offered on deposit basis with customers having to pay between Rs 3,000 to 5,000 as cost of the equipment besides routine installation and service charges. The special plan is available for the first 500 non-government customers and will also be available to the government customers on a rental basis, said Rajeev Gupta, senior vice president, SIS.

Naveen Bhasin, chief executive officer (CEO) of SIS, said that the service has been launched for the first time in Maharashtra after its successful launch in the states of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. He said that the equipment are coming from the company’s manufacturing facility at Himachal Pardesh (HP) adding that out of 30,000 equipment that were manufactured some 700-800 have already been sold.

Bhasin said the company will set up video calling PCOs in different parts of country to make the service more popular. He said that the video telephony will help parents see their children on telephone and will also come as a handy tool for such facilities like telemedicine.

BSNL Principal General Manager, Pune, V K Mahendra, said that the BSNL rules the landline telephone service in the country and the new service has features which are not available in the market. “BSNL also has a major market share of broadband users. Nearly 70 per cent of broadband users use BSNL. The user friendly audio and video conferencing service has high definition voice quality.”

Ashish Pathak, Additional General Manager BSNL, said that the launch of new service will help in bridging the “digital divide.” Giving details about the tariff plan, BSNL said that the service comes after the payment of one time registration charge of Rs 250, monthly service charges of Rs 100 and other miscellaneous charges of Rs 50 per month and per minute usage charge of Rs 1 for voice domestic calls and Rs 2.5 for video calls.

Telecom links in all Indian villages by 2014: BSNL

BSNL has undertaken an ambitious Rs 20,000 crore project to establish telecom links in all villages across India.AGARTALA: State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has undertaken an ambitious Rs 20,000 crore project to establish telecom links in all villages across India and to take e-governance to rural and far-flung areas in the next two years, a BSNL official said here Sunday.
"The Rs 20,000 crore project for the creation of a 'National Optical Fibre Network' (NOFN) for providing internet and other telecommunications connectivity to villages has been launched recently. It would be completed by the next two years," BSNL CMD R.K. Upadhyaya told reporters.
"Once the NOFN was created, it would help in offering governance, banking and health and other basic services online up to the villages and rural areas," he said.
According to him, the tele-density in urban areas in India is almost 100 percent while in the rural areas, it is 37 percent. "After NOFN, the existing tele-density would be increased to a great extent in the rural areas," said Upadhyaya.
He said BSNL accounts to 80 percent of landline and 90 percent of broadband connections in the country, while around 30 percent of the nation's mobile connections are covered by BSNL.
During the past four years, the BSNL could not procure any GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) equipment, he said, adding that tenders have been issued recently for 15 million GSM line connections.

BSNL’s Rs. 30,000-cr cash pile reduces to Rs. 2,500 cr in FY11

The main reasons attributed for the steep decline were payment of Rs. 18,500 crore towards 3G spectrum and broadband wireless access (BWA) spectrum auction price and payment of Rs. 5,301 crore to LIC towards group leave encashment schemePTI New Delhi: Dragged down by payments for 3G, BWA spectrum auction and higher expenses, state-run telecom firm BSNL’s cash reserve dwindled to Rs. 2,500 crore in 2010- 2011 from a hefty Rs. 30,000 crore two years back.
“As per the audited books of account, cash reserve of BSNL has gone down from Rs. 30,343 crore as on 31 March, 2010 to Rs. 2,500 crore on 31 March, 2011,”
Telecom minister Kapil Sibal told Lok Sabha in a written reply. BSNL incurred net losses of Rs. 6,384 crore during the financial year ended on 31 March, 2010, he added.
In response to another query, minister of state for communications and IT Milind Deora said BSNL had Rs. 5,231 crore as outstanding dues from customers as on 30 November, 2011.
Unlisted BSNL has over three lakh employees. Sibal said the government is taking various steps to improve the financial health of the company. Consolidation of infrastructure, strengthening of revenue streams through focus on broadband and enterprise business, focus on customer care and push on data usage are some steps the company is taking in this regard, he said.
