The Ray of hope , the Torch bearers showing paradigm shift of work culture in BSNL

Circle Secretary received a call from an unknown mobile number at around 1000 hrs on 25th December (the Christ mass Day) which happens to be a National Holiday. The caller identified himself as an officer from Intelligence branch stationed at Bongaigaon. The officer complained of one land line number going faulty in his office and requested CS to do something to rectify it. 

 

As all are aware, there is panic in BTAD area and nearby districts after the massacre of innocent people by militants and the Hon'ble Union Home Minister was scheduled to visit the area the very next day. It was a real challenge before CS in view of the perception of prevailing work culture in BSNL. The CS called DS /Bongaigaon Com. Subrata Dey and asked him to do everything to ensure that the land line number is rectified within an hour.

The result was a pleasant surprise ! Com. Omker Bhowmik, D/S, BSNLEU, Com. J. Upadhyay (DE) President of SNEA(I)/BGN , M. K. Nath, SDE/BGN, Mr. Jayanta Ghosh, Telecom Mechanic ..  all came into action immediately and the fault was rectified by 1100 hrs. 
 
Circle Secretary appreciates the officers and staff of Bongaigaon SSA for this noble gesture and for their excellent dedication to duty and also for setting an example for all others in BSNL to follow. 

There we see real change in work culture in BSNL, let us follow it, nurture it and take the company to a new high !(27.12.2014)
