    reliance need to have unlimited plan i mean to say that write now bsnl 3g is giving unlimited plan and i am using it and it rocks if any private sector company is not gonna launch unlimited plans and increases the no. of towers in that particular area .then bsnl has well taken the customers so far it won’t make difference that reliance has launched 3g in hamirpur but if there’ll be only one single tower to operate then they will not get customers they need to install minimum 3 3g towers in that particular town in himachal where they are launching 3g and connectivity must be across 15 km of area around the town then the 3g launch will work in rcom favours and then they can beat bsnl.

    Sub:- Regarding Implementation of BSNL Mobial Tower .

    Sir, With due respect it is stated That from all Inhabitants of Tehsil Bhattiyat Distt. Chamba. H.P Gram panchiyat Kahari want to draw your attention Regarding the problem of mobial Tower.
    A) That in the backward panchiyats like as Kahari,Awan,Kuddi etc in Tehsil Bhattiyat Distt chamba H.P there comes many big villages. The population of Inhabitants under these panchiyats approximately comes to more than 15,000 persons

    B). That in the name of Telecom and communication there is no source for
    these Inhabitants of Gram panchiyat
    Kahari,Awan,and Kuddi etc and these places aré vacated from the facility of communication because potability of any Mobial Tower is none here.

    C) That Regarding geographical condition these above mentioned places are very backward because in these places people did not have even basic facilities to live.

    In emergency Inhabitants of these places can’t take the patient timely to hospital due to time problem in moveability

    D) That because of lack of mobial Tower the Inhabitants of these places can’t enjoy facilities like internet.

    That Inhabitants of Gram panchiyat Kahari face many problem because of lack of telecom and communication but magnitude of the problem continues to be very hiogh when far too many people still lack access to time basic services such as health , Education, Telecom and communication without which they cannot claim there basic share in the benefit of growth.

    It is therefore humbly prayed that mobial Tower of BSNL company is Implanted in these places so people of these panchiyat can take benefit of basic facilities like as Telecom and communication.

    Sir, it is humbly prayed That if company Implanted Tower in place named “Chafar” so not only one panchiyat is benefited but other sourrinding panchiyat also take the benefit of it. It provides an opportunity to restructure people to achieve a new vision based on faster and Inclusive growth it must seek to reduce disparties across regins by ensuring access to basic physical infracture. It is for benefitting all section of population espically those who have thus far remaned deprived.

    Sir we have not only hope but we have true trusted that you kindly draw your attention towards our problem.

    It is therefore humbly requested that Implementation of mobial Tower kindly soonly done in these
