It honestly should be shut down like HMT/allwynn even if they get resistance from workers union. along with another main offender, the maharaja airlines

These resource hogging government entities (BSNL, Air India, etc.) should be shut down as soon as possible. They just can't work in a country like India. Just read that BSNL has 5 times more employees than Airtel. Quite a perspective that.

bsnl also service the entirety of the country. including every village out there in the country. it's their job to link all the villages and gram panchayats and what not. airtel would only focus on areas which they consider profitable. government needs to have presence in a critical area like telecom. especially when communication is so important tool for governance. they cannot outsource it all to private companies who have the ability to monitor all forms of communication. but then we live in a country where official business is conducted over whatsapp and private businesses are involved in essential government infrastructure like NPCI, GSTN and Aadhaar.

^ this is party true. I dont get BSNL signal in my dads village whereas I get 2 bars on jio now. Also I got full signals during my 800km train ride to my dads native village whereas earlier bsnl sim was showing 2 signals and no internet

BSNL was supposed to be backbone of fiber internet in india but now it mostly has 3 people doing 1 people job and collecting salaries. It can trim a lot of fat but workers union just dont allow jobs to be cut so we're stuck with this monolithic overstaffed orgaisation doing bare minimum to keep functioning.
