BSNL has got about 75,000 towers which will be handed over to the new company along with a few officers and staff. The new company may be financially viable, but the the revenue of BSNL will come down drastically making its revival difficult. The Modi government wants to seal the fate of BSNL as the earlier BJP government has sealed the fate of VSNL by gifting it to Tata. There is no VSNL now.It is reported that the Central Cabinet in its meeting on 5th August 2015 has decided to form a Tower Company, separating the tower section of BSNL. This is one of the recommendations of the Deloittee Committee and which has been strongly opposed by the Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations. In the two days strike on 21-22 April 2015 called by the Forum, one of the demands was that the proposal to form a Tower Company should be dropped., only Tata Communications. We can not allow such a fate for BSNL.Strong protest action is required to put a stop to this Cabinet decision. BSNL workers under the Forum have stopped Disinvestment of and VRS in BSNL through continuous and mighty struggles. Now it is the turn against the formation of the Tower Company. Any delay will be dangerous for the revival of BSNL.
