BSNL ignores TRAI directive, phones remain disconnected - nairrk - 10-21-2011


The Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is yet to comply with the directions issued by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India asking the telecom behemoth to restore all points of interconnection between its landline and mobile phones of private service operators.

Despite TRAI directing BSNL to restore the connectivity “immediately” and submit a report on Friday, there has been no action from the BSNL side.

BSNL authorities said they have not received any instructions.

“We have not received any directions from the headquarters till now,” BSNL Punjab Circle General Manager Naresh Sharma.

But private service operators have no hopes of connectivity being restored, as they cite previous instances where BSNL had challenged TRAI jurisdiction to issue directions.

“In the past, BSNL had challenged the powers of TRAI to pass any directions to it. The authorities are yet to take a final call on the jurisdiction of TRAI,” Cellular Operators Association of India Director-General Ranjan Mathews said.
