On Monday, Jul 19 The Joint Action Committee (JAC), represented by three lakh executives and non-executives of BSNL, had met a convention. In the convention JAC demanded to refund of Rs 18,500 crore for 3G and broadband spectrum and exempt the Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) from paying license fee on fixed lines.
