BSNL Clears Pending Feb Salaries Of 1.76 Lakh Employees

New Delhi: State-owned telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) on Friday cleared the pending February salaries of its 1.76 lakh employees.

The public firm also announced the launch of various schemes to increase its market share and revenue.

“We have disbursed salary of all employees that was pending for the month of February. BSNL employees have ensured that customers services run uninterrupted despite issues that they were facing. Now we will aggressively focus on increasing our market share and revenue with attractive schemes,” BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava told PTI.

The BSNL CMD on Thursday had said that the telco was using internal accruals of Rs 850 crore to clear the February salary of its employees.

The payment of salary for the month of February 2019 got affected after the BSNL management took a decision in January to pay salary to all staffers depending on the revenue receipts of a telecom circle. Deficits in revenue collections occurred in circles of northern and west India, where the telecom is suffering losses due to the advent of Reliance Jio and other key players in the telecom market.
