Sam Pitroda Recommends BSNL to scrap Tender for GSM Expansion

Pitroda panel,headed by Sam Pitroda ,advisor to Prime Minister,has recommended BSNL to scrap the controversial GSM network expansion contract for 93 million lines.BSNL’s network expansion process has been excessively delayed when Nokia Siemens filed a case in high court when it could not get shortlisted in tender.

To avoid all such problems and to improve business processes,Pitroda Panel asks BSNL to not buy telecom equipments and manage them on own but to follow managed network services model  which private operators follow.

In managed services model,the network planning,rollout and maintenance work  are relegated to equipment vendors and then operator can concentrate on core areas.This model is followed by most of the private operators while BSNL and MTNL follow the traditional way of buying the equipments.
