GUWAHATI: With its employee unions threatening a day-long hunger strike on Friday, October 11 over delayed salaries during the festival season, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) has said that it is hopeful it will pay salaries to 1.76 lakh employees for September before Diwali.
According to a report published by the Times of India, BSNL generates around Rs. 1600 crore revenue monthly and its salary payout per month is Rs. 850 crore.
The unions are also seeking BSNL’s revival by immediate allocation of 4G spectrum, extension of financial assistance or soft loan and approval for the public sector unit’s land monetisation policy.
