BSNL users will be charged for calling on Sundays for landline/combo/FTTH broadband plans, the rules applies to any weekdays
State-owned BSNL landline users can no longer avail any free calls on Sunday from February 1, 2018. The news appeared after the operator restricted the free night calling benefits a month ago.
Customers will now be charged for calling on Sundays for landline/combo/FTTH broadband plans, the rules applies to any weekdays, reported by BSNL’s Calcutta Telephones (CalTel) spokesperson. He further added that the rules apply to both the current and new users.
Technical Secretary to the CGM Goutam Chakraborty said that BSNL has already amended the night voice calling plan in mid-January after which free calling is offered from 10.30 pm instead of 9 pm.
As of now, Calcutta Telephones has six lakh fixed landline connections out of which 12 million connections are there across the country.
Calcutta Telephones (CalTel) Chief General Manager S P Tripathi told PTI, “BSNL is going to withdraw the free Sunday calling benefit from February 1. This will happen nationally. But, from Calcutta Telephones, we are working on some plans which I think will mitigate the impact for our customers.”
The weekend and weekdays free landline callings were unleashed on August 21, 2016. Now, the new revised plans were sent to the BSNL headquarters for further sanction, while the CalTel BSNL officers are still positive about the clearance of the proposed schemes.
