A large numbers of employees were transferred in rural areas.

Following the mismanaged working of the senior officer, customers are also facing trouble in accessing BSNL services and repairing of faults. The department is also bearing huge revenue losses due to migration of its customers. Private companies are being given undue advantage of wrong policies and deteriorating the performance of BSNL Jabalpur Circle.
