The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is planning to seek the Election Commission of India’s (ECI) permission to move to the Cabinet for approval on the voluntary retirement scheme (VRS) and 4G spectrum allocation for Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL).

The VRS scheme which is part of BSNL’s revival strategy is expected to cost nearly Rs 64 billion. Once passed, the scheme will be available to employees attaining 50 years of age. It would be up to the employees to opt for the retirement scheme.

The DoT has also sought the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) views on the allocation of 4G spectrum to the state-run operator.

The government is under pressure from BSNL management and employee to consider critical proposals, necessary for revival which include VRS, asset monetisation and spectrum allocation.
