The Digital Communications Commission (DCC) is likely to discuss issues like 5G trials during its meeting scheduled on June 13, 2019.

Further, the DCC is also expected to discuss a relief package for state-run operators Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) before sending the final proposal to the cabinet.

Both the operators are currently under financial stress due to a high revenue-to-debt ratio as they have a large number of government employees that were transferred by the Department of Telecommunications to these operators during their formation. While BSNL has 176,000 employees across India, MTNL has 22,000 employees. The revenue-to-wage ratio in case of MTNL has increased to 90 percent while in the case of BSNL it has risen to around 60-70 percent.
