| Updated on: Jan 17, 2018




BSNL customers will be able to make free unlimited calls on any network tomorrow also.

“BSNL...customers will be able to make unlimited free voice calling from their BSNL landlines to any network mobile and landline in the country on August 15, and thereafter every Sunday,” Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha said in a statement.

At present, it offers unlimited night calling on any network in the country between 9 pm to 7 am as a complimentary service for all its customers.

BSNL commands around 57 per cent market share with 14.35 million customers.

“This service will be available for all BSNL landline customers besides the existing free calling scheme at night.

For new customers we are now providing fixed line connections for a monthly rental starting Rs 49 for the first six months. Thereafter, the consumer can shift to a plan of his/ her choice. The lowest monthly rental is Rs 99,” BSNL CMD Anupam Shrivastava said.

The free calling service is available for all BSNL customers.

“These new schemes will let people experience modern facilities that are now available on BSNL’s landline network like call forward to mobile phones,” Shrivastava said.

The BSNL free calling scheme aims at encouraging people to use their landline phones when they are at home and save on mobile phone bills, a BSNL official said.

“The fixed line phones will be instrumental in proliferation of good quality broadband service, which is an essential element of Digital India. The BSNL free calling scheme will pave the way for expansion of broadband services in the country as well through fixed line connections,” the official said.
