Delhi HC seeks reponse from the Centre on appointment of CMDs of BSNL and MTNL

The Delhi High Court has sought a reply from the Centre on a petition filed by an NGO, alleging irregularities in the appointment of CMDs of BSNL and MTNL stating that Telecom Minister A Raja is allegedly trying to push his favourites into the posts.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Manmohan issued notices to the Centre and Department of Telecommunication (DoT) seeking their reply for filing their response on the allegations that the procedure followed by the ministry for the appointment of top posts in the telecom PSUs was arbitrary and malafide.

The court’s directions came while hearing a joint petition filed by an NGO, Telecom Watchdog and Executive Association of Sanchar Nigam, pleading that procedure for appointment of heads of BSNL and MTNL was arbitrary and it should be quashed.

The NGO, in its petition, alleged that the DoT has ‘arbitrarily’ changed the selection criteria formulated by the Sam Pitroda-led committee set up by the Prime Minister for appointment of eligible persons to top posts in the public sector.
