DoT is likely to ask for nod of the apex decision making body of the department, Telecom Commission to revert to the method of selecting chief of state-run MTNL and BSNL through Public Enterprise Services Board instead of through search-cum-selection committee.
“Approval of Telecom Commission (TC) is solicited for adoption of the PESB process for appointment of Chairman-cum-Managing Director, MTNL and BSNL,” an official source said.
While the government has already started the search for CMDs of MTNL and BSNL through PESB, the approval from the TC would ensure a smooth completion of the process. Present MTNL CMD AK Garg and BSNL CMD R K Upadhyay were selected through search-cum-selection committee recommended by panel headed by Advisor to Prime Minister Sam Pitroda for revival of both the PSUs. Both the CMDs were appointed in 2011 for three year period with an option for extension.
The process was approved by the TC in July 2010.
PESB is done with the phase of application submission on August 27 for BSNL CMD, it has fixed last date of October 17 for MTNL CMD applications.
