BSNLக்கு அரசாங்கம் திருப்பித் தரவேண்டிய வருமான வரி ரூ 7000 கோடி ரூபாயை 

உடனே வழங்க அமைச்சர் வலியுறுத்தல்  


              The Economic Times


Ravi Shankar Prasad asks Finance  Ministry  

to hasten Income Tax  refund to BSNL :



KOLKATA: Telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has exhorted the finance ministry
 to hasten a pending Rs 7,000-crore income tax refund to Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) 
in a bid to revive the struggling state-run telecom company before its proposed merger with 
Mahanagar Telephone Nigam (MTNL) next year.
In parallel, the Telecom Commission (TC) is taking steps to arrange an early Rs 6,794 crore refund for BSNL's surrendered 4G airwaves coupled along with a waiver of microwave charges incurred annually by the state-run telco. At present, BSNL shells out nearly Rs 100 crore as royalty annually to DoT's wireless planning cell (WPC) to provide microwave connectivity across the Northeast. TC is the highest decision making body in the DoT

hese revival measures were finalised at a recent BSNL review meeting chaired by telecom secretary Rakesh Garg, according to an internal DoT note seen by ET. "Reviving BSNL is DoT's principal intent in the run-up to any merger discussions," said a top department official who was present in this meeting.
DoT is known to be considering either de-listing state-run MTNL and then merging it into BSNL or listing the latter and finalising a merger swap ratio based on the valuation of the two state-run telecom companies, with the first being the more likely option.
In the immediate term, Garg has asked member (finance) in the Telecom Commission to clear the refund of BSNL's licence fees and spectrum usage charges relating to its surrendered 4G airwaves at the earliest since the telco has only been refunded Rs 100 crore in 2014-15. This is after BSNL Chairman & ManagingDirector AN Rai, who was present at the review meeting, said the "refund was pending despite Cabinet approval earlier this year."
The Cabinet had cleared a refund upwards of Rs 11,000 crore for BSNL and MTNL for their surrendered broadband wireless access (BWA 4G) spectrum. BSNL has relinquished its 4G airwaves in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Kolkata, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
DoT is also exploring ways to boost BSNL's revenue flows by leasing its countrywide tower assets. BSNL has 73,000 towers and currently earns a modest Rs 98 crore annually by leasing merely 3000 units. The revenue target for the next five years has been increased to Rs 1600 crore by leasing a larger proportion of its towers.
The government is trying to revive BSNL at time when the telco needs cash to upgrade its landline network. Over the next two years, plans are afoot to convert over 1 lakh BSNL landline exchanges into IP-enabled next-gen variants to support high-speed broadband services. The thrust on wired broadband is aimed at leveraging BSNL's landline assets to boost data services, and in turn, offset a portion of the losses suffered by its landline business.
BSNL has been losing 1.4 lakh wireline customers every month. So much so, its landline customer base -- now roughly 18.2 million - has shrunk by 40% over the past decade.

BSNL and MTNL to be merged by July 2015


KOLKATA: The telecom department (DoT) has for the first time set a cutoff date—July 31, 2015—for concluding the much discussed merger of struggling state-run telecom companies, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd.
In a presentation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seen by ET, DoT said it expects to "secure Cabinet approval for the proposed BSNL-MTNL merger by June 30 next year".
Towards this, it plans to wrap up merger consultations with the unions of BSNL and MTNL by March 31, 2015, and circulate a draft Cabinet note for inter-ministerial consultations by April 30 next year. MTNL runs telecom services in Delhi and Mumbai while BSNL offers telecom coverage in the rest of India.
In the run-up to the proposed merger, DoT has set additional deadlines for concluding pending organisational restructuring initiatives in both the telcos. For instance, it has set a December 31, 2014, deadline for hiving off BSNL's mobile towers into a wholly-owned arm and also monetising BSNL and MTNL's property holdings to unlock value for their survival, the minutes of DoT's presentation show.
BSNL has 61,622 mobile towers, the second largest tower portfolio among all telcos. A sizeable chunk of its tower assets are colocated with landline exchanges to meet business needs.
BSNL is also the holder of one of the largest land banks among state-owned firms with properties reckoned to be running into thousands of crores of rupees across 3,500 towns. It had recently said it hoped to raise nearly Rs 500 crore in the first year from leasing parts of its land holdings and would also offer its telecom factories to contract manufacturers to generate cash in its bid to contain losses.
While BSNL is yet to do a valuation of its countrywide property holdings, MTNL's land and building assets are pegged above Rs 3,000 crore, according to a senior company executive.
In addition, DoT plans to provide financial support to compensate MTNL for liabilities stemming from its minimum alternate tax (MAT) payout, which is pegged at roughly Rs 780 crore. It also proposes to fund MTNL's capex needs for expanding its mobile, landline and broadband networks. A top MTNL executive said the company had sought Rs 2,000 crore from DoT for meeting network expansion capex costs over a three-year span.
BSNL and MTNL have an infrastructure-sharing pact for providing joint services to companies. They share assets such as buildings, mobile masts and international longdistance phone networks to service mostly enterprise customers.
DoT's presentation to the prime minister on the BSNL-MTNL merger road map comes at a time when theNarendra Modi government is trying to revive the two financially stressed telcos, which continue to reel under hefty losses. MTNL posted a Rs 733.2 crore net loss in the quarter to June, while BSNL incurred a Rs 7,085 crore loss in 2013-14.
