Installation of Tower and Cables in Chhattisgarh
Only 178 towers are pending for installation of equipment in Chattisgarh.

Some of the towers are not being utilized due to non-availability of equipments. BSNL has earmarked 1,00,000 lines of mobile capacity for expansion in Chattisgarh Telecom Circle in its mobile expansion plan.

The under Ground Cables and Optical Fibre Cables (OFC) get cut due to road widening, construction of new roads/drainage systems by local bodies and Public Works Department (PWD). For early restoration and to minimize the cable cuts, these cases are taken up by BSNL with the concerned local authorities.

This was stated by Shri Milind Deora, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology in response to a written question in Rajya Sabha today.
