 The Tamil Nadu circle executive committee of All India Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited Officers’ Association has urged the central government to desist from any disinvestment in the BSNL in order to protect the interest of the consumers.

A resolution adopted by the association categorically said that it was because of the presence of BSNL that the consumers were enjoying telecommunication services at a less tariff.  And due to this fierce competition, private companies are unable to hike the tariff according to their whims and fancies, according to a news report in The Hindu.
 
A proposal on disinvestment in the BSNL had been on the agenda for some years but remained suspended as the financial status of the BSNL was critical. But, with the financial position improving, Niti Aayog had revived a proposal for disinvestment.
