BSNL To Lease Network Assets To Private Companies

BSNL To Lease Network Assets To Private CompaniesIt looks like soon BSNL will ask private operators to operate and maintain its towers and its optical fiber cables in India and this been done to bring down the cost of managing it.

Mr R.K. Upadhyay CMD BSNL in his recent interview to The Hindu Businessline cited once a private player takes over the mobile towers, then the cost of maintaining the sites, including security, air-conditioning and diesel will be borne by the partner.

BSNL will continue to own the towers and also occupy one slot of the tower.The partner will be free to rent out space to other mobile operators for a fee .

Our take :-

BSNL earlier tried with private player in wimax venture but it did welcome many controversies.It would be better if BSNL keeps its assets under its own operations and rent it to pvt players.

Whatever it is, bsnl makes plans but it didn’t happen coz all decision of bsnl is regulated by govt of india. It makes the whole procedure lengthy and cumbersome to all tender appliers.

Do you think this will help BSNL and end users do let us know whats your take on this.

Well, it is now clear that PSUs can survive only in a monopoly/hegemony. Can’t take competitions! Very unfortunate that BSNL is not able to manage their own towers ! Better wind up – This kind of partnership business will only end up in more scamsor bunder-baat.

By the way who is at the helm of affairs – Kapilji ? What about his 100 days’ promise ?
