News : BSNL, MTNL on Notice Over Poor Service Quality
New Delhi, India, Nov 23, 2015 -- The Telecom Ministry has issued notices to state-owned BSNL, MTNL and India Posts after Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad personally took note of citizen complaints over service quality on social media since July.
Prasad, who has over 4.65 lakh followers on Facebook, received the complaints relating to the three departments under his ministry.
"Till date, 102 notices have been issued to departments under this ministry and 64 have been resolved. BSNL now has an official page on Facebook to connect with people," an official said.
The Minister has asked BSNL and other concerns to use the social media, following which it held a workshop for officers in-charge of public grievance redressal in each telecom circle.
On top of that, BSNL has appointed an agency to look into issues raised by subscribers on social media sites.
When contacted, BSNL CMD Anupam Shrivastava confirmed that the complaint monitoring mechanism on social media is already up and running.
