Anupam Shrivastava appointed BSNL CMD

By January 16th, 2015 AT 12:11 PM

BSNL-logoBSNL has announced the appointment of Mr. Anupam Shrivastava as the new CMD after the candidacy being approved by the Appointments Committee of the cabinet. Shrivastava was earlier heading the Consumer Mobility division of the telco.

Anupam Shrivastava was appointed as director of BSNL way back in 2013 but the recommendation was held back by the then Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal who extended RK Upadhyay’s term till June 30. The government further delayed appointing head of BSNL as it was making headlines due to the huge loss it was incurring. Currently Director Enterprises AN Rai is handling the additional charge of the CMD.

It will be a challenging task for Mr. Srivastava as he will be responsible for the NOFN(National Optical Fibre Network) project which is going at snail pace. Only 6% of the cable laying work has been completed whereas the entire project was given a realistic deadline this year and now it has been extended to December 2016. Mr. Srivastava will also have to devise strategies and turn the state run telecom company into a profit-making one.

Dear Admin, I am a BSNL prepaid mobile user of Uttar Pradesh (West) telecom circle. I am regularly sending port out message from last 20 days but not getting any message/UPC code from server. Even BSNL’s SDO/JE is refusing to help on this matter. Please help me to get UPC so i can leave the worst network of my area.


Its strange. Make sure to send the request in format PORT XXXXXXXXXX to 1900 and ensure its delivered. Else complain on in “Department of Telecommunication” section


Thanks SS, there is no typing mistake in every message which i have send. Anyways i have to write to pgportal 🙂
