When the nature disconnected Chennai from other parts, the
BSNL, in its true spirit of Connecting India, connected all the BSNL Customers
to their near and dear during the devastating calamity times too. BSNL
is the only service provider provided service during all the critical natural
calamities right from Jammu floods, Vizag Hud-Hud storm to the recent Chennai
Floods. It is not that we are appreciating our services - it is the Public, the
Media, the Agencies and the Government itself which have highlighted the
relentless services provided to customers during the crisis. Only 10% of the
services got affected due to the floods; remaining 90% of services were
maintained even in the absence of commercial power supply. Almost all the
Exchanges were kept alive with the help of Engine Alternators. Engine
Alternators were continuously operated for more than 96 hours, something
un-imaginable when diesel supply too was crippled. Almost all the maintenance
staff turned to office during the period of crisis including Sunday; many of
them even stayed back at office day and night. The staff has put their best
efforts without any time restrictions. Our comrades have literally risen up to
the occasion. We have once again proved the real power of commitment of Public
Sector Services. The CMD and DIR (CFA) during their visit to Chennai on
09.12.2015 have appreciated the entire BSNL staff of Chennai and Tamil Nadu for
their best efforts. The Chennai Telephones Management has organized a meeting for
all the Unions/Associations with CMD and DIR(CFA) on 09.12.2015. CP and CS attended
the meeting. The CMD assured that they will extend their full support for the
restoration of the services.
On behalf of SNEA, Chennai Telephones we appreciate all the
staff who took care of our esteemed customers during critical times. We thank
all the SNEA members who have contributed and extended help to the victims.
CGM, Chennai Telephones requested all the staff to attend office on 06.12.2015 (Sunday) to bring the services normal. Let us ensure the services affected, due to flood are restored to maximum possible extent. Let us attend office enthusiastically and ensure the customer can access all BSNL services.
Let us work for BSNL glory
SNEA, Chennai Telephones wishes all the staff who retire today on superannuation. We wish them a Happy, Peaceful and Healthy retired life.
