DOT must concentrate first on reviving the losses of both the PSU's. ITS issue is still not settled and is causing a huge loss to BSNL.Difference in HR policies, Pay scales of both the PSU's is major hurdle for for a merger

DOT is unable to settle ITS officers absorption issue since inception of BSNL which is the vital cause of loss in its account book. Bad policy, lack of belongingness and working without responsibility, the unabsorbed upper management are the bane for the company. Synergy beetween the telecom PSUs is the secondary issue.
