24.09.2014:Varanasi Ghats, Lucknow Bhool-Bhulaiyyan to Get Wi-Fi Connectivity: BSNL

Put this down to the Narendra Modi effect. Soon, visitors and tourists to the Varanasi ghats and Lucknow's famed Bhool-Bhulaiyyan (maze) will be able to surf the net thanks to Wi-Fi hotspots being created there and at other places in the state at nothing less than breakneck speed.
Spurred into action by the ascendancy of Modi, the Varanasi MP, as the prime minister, telecom service provider Bharatiya Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has fast-tracked work on providing Wi-Fi connectivity at the Varanasi ghats. This would be done "earlier than expected" as the union telecom ministry is closely supervising the operations, a senior official told IANS, not wishing to be identified because of government rules.
In the first phase, Internet hotspots would be provided at the ghats and also at the Sangam, where the three holy Hindu rivers - the Ganga, Yamuna and the celestial Saraswati - meet. With major footfalls in these cities and tourist hotspots, an official pointed out "instructions were to make these places Wi-Fi by end of October".
Other than this, the fabled Bhool-Bhulaiyyan in Lucknow, represented by union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in the Lok Sabha, is also on the Wi-Fi radar.
Work has already begun on laying optic fibre cables in these areas. A senior official said work was being done in the right earnest.
In the next phase, BSNL plans to provide broadband connectivity at all major tourist attractions and religious places in the state to enhance the internet experience.
BSNL is also working in full swing on the National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN) aimed at providing broadband internet in the countryside. The first phase of work is complete, with 1,477 villages - 387 in Uttar Pradesh - already connected to the internet. Spread over 19 districts and 25 blocks these villages will soon get a "major makeover" say officials, adding that these villages also have GPS installed.
In Lucknow, 15 villages are in the Bakshi Ka Talaab area, 34 in Mall block and 35 in the mango belt of Malihabad. Other villages which have been connected to the internet include Baberu in Banda, Gauhad in Hamirpur, Charkhari in Mahoba and Dariyabad in Barabanki.
While NOFN was conceived in 2011, work, officials admit, "picked up considerable pace ever since the Modi government came to power" and point out that instructions have been received from the union telecom ministry to review all cable joints and ensure broadband connectivity and GPS installation in all the nine circles of the state.
Modi is known for his stress and priority on use of internet and e-commerce as a powerful tool to develop India into a major power in the years to come. Only recently, a private e-commerce player launched a platform in Varanasi where weavers were connected to the internet to sell their looms, other products and the famous Banarasi saris.
"Uttar Pradesh is undergoing a sea change as far as use and assimilation of modern technology is concerned," said an official, while pointing out that the state government was also extending full support making it easier to usher in the internet revolution in the Hindi heartland. The Samajwadi party government's free laptop scheme under which hundreds of thousands of laptops were given to students who had cleared class 12 hinges majorly on Internet availability.

09.08.2014:BSNL will not be allowed to die: Ravi Shankar Prasad

New Delhi: Telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Friday assured Parliament that his ministry will revive BSNL and said the government will provide full support to the state-owned telecom giant to help regain its past glory.
“BSNL will not be allowed to die,” the minister assured the House. The minister also informed that BSNL was in the pink of financial health but lost to competition due to inadequate investment in infrastructure expansion that ought to have been provided during past few years. Mr Prasad said BSNL also slipped because it was made to pay “market rate (of Rs 18,500.38 crore) for both 3G and broadband wireless access spectrum” along with high employee cost and poor perception of quality of service provided by BSNL.

09.08.2014:Private telcos owe BSNL Rs 1,207 cr

09.08.2014:Government to give full support for BSNL's revival: Ravi Shankar Prasasd

NEW DELHI: Vowing to revive state-owned BSNL, Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said the government will provide full support to the state-owned telecom giant to help regain its past glory. 

BSNL, which was formed in 2000, was in the pink of financial health but lost to competition because of inadequate investment in infrastructure expansion that ought to have been provided during past few years, he told Rajya Sabha. 

Government is committed to the revival of BSNL...I want to assure the House that BSNL will not be allowed to die," he said during Question Hour. 

The firm's market share has dipped from 15.66 per cent as on March 31, 2010 to 11.70 as on May 31, 2014. 

Prasad said BSNL slipped because of "inadequate investment in infrastructure expansion in recent years leading to delay in expansion of mobile network" and the company was also made to pay "market rate (of Rs 18,500.38 crore) for both 3G and broadband wireless access (BWA) spectrum". 

High employee cost and poor perception of quality of service provided by BSNL too impacted profitability, he said. 

Government has taken different measures such as waiver of Rs 1,411 crore government loan to BSNL and return of Rs 6,724.51 crore for surrendering the BWA spectrum, he said. 

Besides, infrastructure is being upgraded. BSNL is migrating from Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to Next Generation Network (NGN) to provide enhanced value added services like personalised ring back tone, broadband, multi media video conferencing, Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) services and fixed-mobile service convergence.

"BSNL is expanding its mobile network across the country through installation of 15 million lines at a cost of Rs 4,804 crore," he said, adding augmentation of network elements and expansion of broadband network has been planned to cater to the traffic growth. 

On allegations that BSNL employees were conniving with private operators to sabotage the company, he said he is personally monitoring performance of BSNL and will take action if specific instances are brought to his notice.

It was Rs 12,983 crore as of March 31, 2012, Parliament was informed today. For BSNL, it was Rs 3,335 crore, and MTNL — Rs 9,648 crore. 

"As on March 31 (2014), the total debts on the books of BSNL and MTNL are Rs 5,948 and Rs 14,210 crores respectively," Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said in the Rajya Sabha. 

He said further that total debt on BSNL as the end of June stood at Rs 6,448 crore while it was Rs 14,760 crore for MTNL. 

That apart, market share for BSNL in mobile services has come down to 12.3 per cent at the end of May 2014 from 13.27 per cent at the end of March 2012. The market share of BSNL in landline segment has also reduced to 82.57 per cent at end of May 2014, from 85.61 per cent at the end of March 2012. 

MTNL, which operates in Delhi and Mumbai, market share in mobile services and landline at the end of May 2014 stood at 4.83 per cent and 57.43 per cent respectively. 

Prasad said that inability to expand coverage due to financial and procurement problems, lack of adequate skills set due to changing nature of technology and customer centric business with focus on sales, marketing and customer services are some of main reason for decline in market share of PSUs. 

He said government has taken measures to revive the two state-run telecom firms which include waiver of Rs 1,411 crore government loan to BSNL and financial support of Rs 6,724.51 crore to BSNL and Rs 4,533.97 crore to MTNL on surrender of broadband spectrum. 

"Besides these measures government is engaged in formulating a coordinated plan aimed towards revival of BSNL and MTNL by addressing issues of high employee expenses and gainful utilisation of assets," Prasad said. 

The minister said that BSNL and MTNL are separately preparing a revival plan for increasing revenue potential, identifying business opportunities, and organisational restructuring to enable them to grow into customer-centric companies with expertise in marketing and customer services delivery.
