BSNL faces opposition for installing new mobile towers

PUNE: Delay in permission and renewal of existing mobile towers in the city is a major cause of concern for the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) which is in need of 1000 more towers to improve its connectivity.

BSNL officials have said that less number of towers is the reason behind their weak network coverage.

“There are a total of 440 towers currently in the Pune district, out of which 12 are closed.

Residents had complained that the mobile towers have caused health hazards and so installing a new tower is a huge problem today,” said Arvind Vadnerkar, General Manager, Administration BSNL, on Thursday.

He added that there are no reports of any health problems due to mobile towers.

“A trend has started in Pune that people want mobiles but do not want a tower in their vicinity. This is causing problem in giving good network coverage,” he said.

BSNL is also unhappy with the exorbitant rates charged by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) for laying the underground cables for landline connections.

Officials want these rates to be at par with the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co Ltd (MSEDCL), which are Rs 1,900 per metre as compared to the Rs 2,500 for the PMC and Rs 4,500 for the PCMC.

GROWING ACQUISITIONS

BSNL Pune revenue grew by 10 per cent during 2012-13.

BSNL, Pune, has been at the forefront in various business acquisitions in 2012-13. These acquisitions grew by 44 per cent in 2012-13. The major projects include giving broad band connectivity and virtual privates networks to 1,200 branches of the Bank of Maharashtra for five years.

The BSNL is also going to provide connectivity to the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System, which will be implemented across Maharashtra.

Similarly, 451 offices of the Inspector General of Revenue and 550 Land lord offices in the State will be provided connectivity to a main server by the BSNL. The BSNL is likely to be the telecomm connectivity partner for installing CCTVs in the PMC and the PCMC areas.

The BSNL has plans to provide optical fiber connectivity of 2 MBPS to 1,399 village panchayats in the Pune district.
