Every company faces loses but to overcome of it is worth, Merging MTNL & BSNl will surely overcome losses but it requires daily practices to track losess & its causes. And then plan to over come losses, Advertisment plays important role in taking company ahead also various new products will make better way to overcome losses & take company to new height, The national mobile number portability may be seen transforming MTNL / BSNL to new height.

Merging of MTNL & BSNL will be worth, only if regular practises would be attempted to find losses & causes for same.
And as per dealing on best tariffs & packs not just in benefit for customer but to benefit company by raising customer base.

From what situtation MTNL is currently in, it would really be very difficult for them to survive in future. BSNL though, in loss has well built up infrastructure though poorly maintained in N india. MTNL on the other hand, neither has infrastructure nor the customer base. It would be better to merge with BSNL.
