For the quarter ended March 31, MTNL posted a loss of Rs 595.11 crore, however, it was down 18.57% from Rs 730.83 crore loss in the preceding quarter. MTNL to go on: MTNL was among the five public sector undertakings (PSUs) the government planned to shut down, heavy industries minister Anant Geete had said during Question Hour in the Lok Sabha, adding that its employees were being offered a “very good” VRS package, in March this year. However, union minister for communications and information technology Ravi Shankar Prasad later clarified saying the government did not plan to shut down the loss-making operator, and would instead take various measures to revive it. MTNL injecting Javascripts in internet connections: MTNL has also been in the news for the wrong reasons: The company has been inserting code into its users' browsing sessions and pushing advertisements. These advertisements were being pushed via a service called Adphonso.
