Talks on BSNL and MTNL Shutdown, No official info yet

Reportedly the two public sector undertakings would be closed since finance ministry rejected the proposal of the department of telecommunications (DoT). It is said that the inability to allocate a massive investment of INR 74,000 crore on BSNL and MTNL had made the finance ministry to arrive at the decision.

The shutting down of the two public sector undertakings would affect the directly recruited employees including those from the Indian Telecommunications Service (ITS). The reports also suggested that the employees would be re-deployed to other departments.
