ICT Minister Zodintluanga informed Singh that BSNL service in Mizoram “is inadequate for the subscribers as of now, especially those who use internet for their work faces a great problem.”
Singh has been urged to provide adequate output from the existing service than planning an extension programme in the state.
Informing that the people of Mizoram have a great interest in information technology, Zodintluanga told Singh that Mizoram could be the leading state among the North Eastern states in telecommunication sector.
“Mizoram government is always ready to support and contribute for promoting the BSNL service,” he told Singh.
The ICT Minister moreover informed Singh that the grounds dug for BSNL cable were not deep enough besides destroying roads.
Singh in turn lauded Mizoram for its “progress in IT”, and said damage of road has been caused because of no arrangement being made for separate ground line for the BSNL cable. He also suggested the ICT Minister to ask the Mizoram government to make such necessary arrangement.
Besides, Singh asked Zodintluanga to give suggestions to the Ministry of Telecommunication make arrangement for additional Kolkata-Dacca-Cox Bazar-Lawngtlai cable connection line besides the existing Aizawl-Silchar-Shillong-Guwahati-Siliguri-Kolkata line, so that Mizoram could have better BSNL service.
