Ravi Shankar Prasad likely to give incentives to BSNL, MTNL on Dec 25

Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad is likely to announce some "incentives" to BSNL and MTNL on December 25 ‘Good Governance Day’ in a bid to accelerate the revival of the two state-owned loss-making telecom firms.
“The minister is likely to announce incentives for BSNL and MTNL in an effort to accelerate the governments' efforts to bring the companies out of financial distress," a source said.
Prasad has been reviewing working of the telecom firms on a fortnightly basis and has been stressing on officials to work on increasing the revenue potential, identifying business opportunities among others, the source added.
Earlier this month, the Minister informed Lok Sabha that government is in process of revival of BSNL and MTNL through various short term, medium term and long term measures.
