The administrative officers have started gearing up for the preparation of the Assembly election. The meetings are being held in all the districts. But, the coordination among the officers for the preparation is quite deficient in Dungarpur district. Thanks to the BSNL.
The only government owned telecom company BSNL has become a headache for the administrative officers including district collector Vikram Singh Chouhan. Officials are facing problems while making calls from BSNL cell phones and its Internet services are also poor.
Such “defunct” service continues for several months. The administration is quite worried as the officers are not able to make calls and use Internet to get updated information from the election commission.
So, the collector urged chief secretary CK Mathew to hold talks with the company so that the services can be improved.
“Currently most of the government employees have subscribed the BSNL service for mobile phones and broadband Internet services in the offices.
In this context of poor service the information by the district collectorate officers to other departments is not being exchanged in time,” said the collector in his note. “It is also affecting the activities of the election. Therefore I request you to issue direction to the company at state level which would be helpful for the proper execution of the government duties.”
When contacted, the collector said, “Yes, I have sent the letter regarding to upgrade the services of BSNL. I already held dialogue with the company district officials, but they could not solve the problems yet.”
