Thriuvananthapuram | BSNL’s Kerala circle has registered a remarkable profit of Rs 486 crore in the financial year of 2014-15 though the central PSU is struggling at the national level, M S Rao, Chief General Manager of the circle, said. The Kerala circle is performing very well and registers growth in all aspects including revenue and profit.
The circle has registered a profit of Rs 486 crore during the financial year 2014-15, he told reporters during a press meet here today. The profit from the circle was Rs 411 crore and Rs 287 crore during 2013-14 and 2012-13 fiscals respectively, he said.
But, the overall performance of BSNL at the national level is not so good, he said. Rao, however, said frequent strikes and agitations, called by various employees’ unions, hit the growth of the circle, which has about 13,000 regular employees and 7,000 outsourced contract workers. He also alleged that a section of union leaders, who have differences with him over several issues, target him personally and even threatened him.
