Outsourcing of Non-BSNL Site BTS by CGM
CGMT, Assam Telecom Circle decided to go for total OUTSOURCING of NON BSNL site BTSes. Jorhat SSA has been chosen on experimental basis and the execution of the job by floating open tender has been entrusted to the Electrical wing, Jorhat.
Electrical Division, BSNL, Jorhat floated the tender for O & M (i.e. total work) of all NON BSNL site BTSes (63 BTS sites). Value of the Tender is approximately Rs.1.5 core and around Rs.10,000/- per BTS per month.

CS had a long discussion with the CGMT on this issue. CGMT was adamant in his decision with a strong opinion for allowing open competition in the field of O & M with private vendors. In the discussion, CGMT behaved himself as the sole owner of the Circle and sometimes as a leader of vendors.
Finally, the tender was blocked by SNEA Jorhat District with the help and co-operation from members of BSNLEU, Jorhat District, on 30th December, 2010. All the members of Jorhat District deserve appreciation for their challenging success for registering their protest by totally stopping the tender even daring their lives.
