As Per Latest Information BSNL restored communication to the Munnar Rajamala landslide in record time.

BSNL mobile towers in Munnar Pettimudi were damaged due to heavy rain, disrupting communication.

Following the severe landslide brought on by excessive rain that left Munnar Petti Mudi with nearly irreparable damage and claimed many lives, the Rajamala industrial area severely damaged the nearby BSNL mobile towers. Due to BSNL being the sole operator in this high-range location in the Idukki district, connectivity in this remotest place was completely cut off.

The rescue efforts have been hampered as a result, but BSNL was able to quickly restore contact using satellite connectivity, overcoming significant obstacles. Because there was no road access due to the bridge between Munnar and Pettimudy getting washed out, BSNL personnel had to turn to a woodland footpath to get to the tower position, which presented several challenges.

The service has been restored with generator backup because of the entire cutoff of the power supply caused by the intense rain and wind. The number of calls handled per hour is over 2000 with the restoration of service with these two BSNL towers in this area on satellite media.

In order to assist with the rescue efforts, BSNL swiftly increased the back-haul bandwidth by four times. The highly committed efforts of the BSNL team led by Shri. Prasanth JTO in the time of need were able to repair the damages brought on by the strong wind and constant rain.

As stated by Dr. K Francis Jacob, Principal General Manager, BSNL Ernakulam, Devik Ulam sub-collector, Forest authorities, and Kannan Devan Tea plant, they all gave their assistance in our endeavor to restore communication on a war footing.

Once more, BSNL demonstrated its superiority as your ideal ally under trying circumstances. Dear readers, do let us know in the comments what you think about this opportune move from BSNL.
