Again 22000 will be unemployed.

Crores of ruppes to be paid to each employee. That''s the tax payers money. Y such preference to government employees? Y should profit making private companies employees be in risk always?<br/>The merger is another big sureshot failure! God bless India&eth;

banks give loan to govt employees easily now they will think twice before giving them loan because of job security

Thinkman (M) replies to Saqib Munees

They will still give, since VRS is a soft blow which can be handled. If it were private company it would be a very hard blow when they are fired.

Viraf

Another 22000 added to the army of unemployed, reducing the purchasing power, pushing down the economy. Jai ho

Just

If there is a God then I pray that everyone in the family of ramakrishnan s gets this vrs. It will be a eye opener for this sicko Bhakt. Would love to see how they all and their families live their rest of their lives with this great bounty.

This kind of generous VRS scheme should apply to all labour,irrespective of companies and should be introduced in the new labour code.Why this partiality.Eceryone should get a generous settlement whether public or private workers. Why the communists are not protesting?They only protest when Indian economy does well.

I work in a large multinational and can confidently say Indian mentality has remain same over the years. Mostly fresh young talent works with energy and less maturity while seniors work with less enthusiasm but with maturity. Experienced and very senior class are always creating hurdles and beaurocracies for fresh talents such that their position is valued. Public and private sector does not matter. In the end it is Indian mindset. As long as the sponcer/employer is able to survive (not make lots of profit) these people work. Then it stars firing. Many of such people are actually so good that the private organisation (or the Government undertaking) output is because of them. Mind you this number is huge even though we talk about laxy and careless people. This is the precise reason government as well as private sector is still delivering but none have exceptional quality.

Close down BSNL/ MTNL... Send employees to home..Tax sucking and non value adding workforce.

Padamnoor

Looks like we will have only one Telephone service at this rate! Back to the old days, only now, it will be in the private sector. Jolly good show!

Just

Wow 22000 new pakoda shops.

BJP govt should take VRS and open pakoda shops everywhere.They have failed this nation and resorted to treachery

Pichamani

looks cream leaving the job. Now Heaven for Communist/Congress union.

Bhakth

In reality, 22,000 jobs vanished . It means 22,000 families.

Gautam

when will our govt announce a similar vrs scheme for PM and his entire cabinet?? Modi ji ki jai :-)

Manu

there should be VRS for our feku PM also

VRS needs to be taken by at least 50k for things to become stable for BSNL

Bharat

thank god these leaches are finally after sucking dry the company are going.

Jatin

Fire the VRS Eligible employees of BSNL and MTNL, hire the new ones for max operating efficiency..

More people taking VRS will join the unemployed.

Prasad

SELL BSNL TO PRIVATE COMPANY.

Chandanwood

Looted government and our tax money all these years !

Kishore

THOSE WHO DO NOT OPT FOR VRS SACK THEM BECAUSE THE LAZY MORONS WANT TO CONTINUE MILCHING GOVT OF TAXPAYERS MONEY.

Prabhat

That 22000 people were getting salary without any work and will get money for remaining part of their service. CEO in a private company would have taken action in a much smarter way than BSNL CEO.
