BSNL is one of the lousiest of public sector companies in india. in spite of enormous technological advancements in the telecom industry, most of its personnel still have the old habits of 60's to 80's with a sick mindset! it is still a highly inefficient, indifferent company not bothered about its customers!

it spends only on products & services, and not on its lousy service!

How many PSU have shown any profit in decades?
What a shame while cell phone companies re making profit and this one is loosing but than anyone in India cares as it is a PSU

Auto giant Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) Ltd said it has agreed to acquire 5.5% of IT firm Tech Mahindra's stake from UK-based British Telecommunications Plc (BT).
