State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) has launched an alternate digital KYC process for issuing new connections across various circles, a top official has said.
As part of the ongoing revival talks, telecom department has asked the ailing MTNL to outline a long-term roadmap on how the PSU plans to compete with other players that have a pan-India footprint, the operator's chairman said.
The govt has deferred a decision on selling a stake in BSNL as falling profits and market share in the handphone sector dim the prospects of a successful sale.
BSNL introduced state-of-the-art 100G Optical Transport Network across the country to provide Super Express Highways.
MTNL incurred a loss of Rs 2,005.7 cr in 2015-16 and is exploring the option of monetisation of its assets that may improve its revenue, the Lok Sabha was informed today
