The principal secretary to the Prime Minister, P.K. Mishra, has convened a meeting to discuss the action plan for the revival of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL).

The meeting is expected to be attended by the NITI Aayog chief executive officer Amitabh Kant, and secretaries of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), Economic Affairs, and Expenditure, as well as the chief executives of the two telcos.

The move comes after BSNL had written to the Prime Minister seeking his immediate attention on its revival, citing slow progress despite the centre working on the revival package since 2018.
