BSNL Workers to

Donate for Disaster Victims


IN this connection, V A N Namboodiri, convener of the Forum of BSNL Unions & Associations, too has informed that, motivated by the said Forum, employees of the public sector Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) have taken due note of the serious situation in Uttarakhand and the requirement of funds for rehabilitation of the affected people, and have unanimously decided to donate one say’s pay each to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund. This will be deducted from the employees’ salaries for the month of June and remitted to the PM’s Relief Fund.


The Forum has urged the BSNL management that the affected or missing BSNL employees and pilgrims of other circles should be given all assistance by the company immediately. The Forum has also asked the department of telecommunications (DoT) to provide immediate financial assistance to the BSNL, in view of its poor financial condition, for rehabilitation of telecom services which have been severely damaged in Uttarakhand.
