GOVT RULES OUT PRIVATISATION OF BSNL & MTNL


Government today ruled out privatisation of BSNL and MTNL

even as it admitted that the two state-run telecom service

providers were not in the pink of their health. Responding to

a supplementary during the Question Hour in Rajya Sabha,

Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, said the intention of

the government was to bring them back to profitability. "The

financial health of MTNL and BSNL are not in good shape.

There are several reasons for this which I want I want to

discuss in the House in greater detail one day. However, we

will make them healthy," he said. Prasad also said that the 

two erstwhile profit-making entities have been incurring

losses for some years and one of the reasons for their

downfall could be traced into the way these were "forced to

function in those days". "We need to improve health of these

two companies. There is no attempt to privatise them," he

said, adding that 25,000 mobile towers are being installed by

BSNL and MTNL to improve their services. To another

question, Prasad said the telecom subscribers base in the

country is set to touch one billion mark soon from 97.9 crore

as on December-end. regarding mobile tariff, he said service

providers have the flexibility to offer different tariff schemes

depending on the market conditions and other commercial

considerations. "The rates charged by mobile service

providers for various types of calls differ from service area to

service area. The rates offered by the same operator in a

service area could also be different depending on the traiff

plan subscribed by each individual consumer," he said
