Did you have a frustrating day trying to book a railway or airline ticket? Or maybe order a pizza?

That’s because a strike by employees of the government-owned Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL), who were demanding a pay hike, entered its second day on Tuesday.

“The agitating officials have cut optical fibre cables and have disturbed servers,” said R.S.P. Sinha, chairman and managing director, MTNL. He claimed all services would resume by Tuesday evening.

In some hospitals, like the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, the strike meant no outgoing calls, though patient care services were not affected.
