Sub: Open Invitation For Inquiry (Corruption In BSNL Nagpur)
Since this is the sensetive information I am again writing to your office for the needful.
On date 23-11-2002 Hingna Exchange Staff Mr. Dubey accepted Rs. 50.00
as illegal remuneration for installation of new telephone connection. This is the 10Th incidence in year 2002 I am informing you.
On date 04-Jan-2003 STD call was made right from the Hingna Rural Exchange with the connivance of Hingna Exchange Staff Mr. Fulzele. The person who made the call was not only provided free entry to Hingna Exchange Telecom Network but Mr. Fulzele (TTO) also abused the right given to him for free entry to subscriber's telecom network installations. Call was made right from the telephone exchange racks and cards.
Why Such thing keep happening in BSNL Nagpur - Reason your PGM Mr. Poorna Chandra Sahu is protecting captain of corruption in BSNL Nagpur i.e. Mr. Yash Panhekar Area Manager Rural. Your office was already informed regarding his corruption activities including defrauding the BSNL by showing favours to contractors who have made inferior installation of cables.

Hope you treat this as confidential information & help me fight corruption. Wish You Corruption Free Happy New Year No Matter My Telephone Remains Dead.
You may forward this email to PGM Nagpur.
First congratulate and support Mr. Avinash to come forward and fighting against corruption. We found lot of similar incidents in any govt. controlled telecom offices. The employees some time take money from people and route their calls through one of the customers account, who is not using their allocated minutes or who are calling most frequently. This is causing for higher bills in consumers account and loss in govt. profits.
After we read this open letter from Mr. Avinash, you might have a better picture on what we should do to clean this corruption.
Please submit your suggestions so that every telephone consumer can take a proper action.
