Fall of MTNL in post reform period: An analysis

Poonam Mittal

Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) was incorporated on February 28, 1986, under the Companies Act as a wholly-owned Govt.(1) According to P. Mittal and S. Ashraf (2006), MTNL commenced its operations with the main objectives to upgrade the quality of telecom services to the international level, raising necessary financial resources for the developmental needs of telecom services and investing in human resource development to fulfil the needs of increasingly technologically- oriented services. (2) The objective of this paper is to analyse the impact of reforms on Public Sector Enterprise, MTNL, with the help of its performance parameters. It also concluded the reasons for its downfall even after reforms. Closure of public sector units even after disinvestment left a big question mark on Government policies. The analysis of the study is based on secondary data with 5 variables- Number of Employees, Direct Exchange Lines, Expenditure and Subscribers base is taken as Dependent and Total Income as the Independent variable during the period (2018-2021) to analyse the difference and relationship between them by using Paired T-test and Pearson Correlation respectively. No parameter showed a significant impact on income.
