The state-owned telecom operator BSNL has now decided to extend its free voice callings on Sundays for another three months. Couple of days, the operator proclaimed to avert this feature from February 1.
On 29th January, BSNL said 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.
However, to avoid losing trust from its users, the operator in a statement on Saturday said the offer would still continue due to rising demand from the users. It will provide free voice calls on Sundays to its landline, combo, or FTTH broadband subscribers for another three months. After the completion of three months, the state-owned operator might discontinue the scheme forever.
A BSNL spokesperson said to TelecomTalk.info, “BSNL is happy to announce that Sunday Free Calling Facility from BSNL Landline to any other phone, any other operator, which was suppose to be closed wef 1.2.2018, will continue to be FREE for another Three Months. This decision is taken after considering popular demand from all corners of this country and from all strata of society.”
The operator has commenced to offer this scheme from August 2016 whose main intention was to escalate the user base on a massive scale. But, unfortunately in the last two years, the user base has been reduced drastically. Not only that, BSNL revised its premium broadband plans above Rs 1,400, which in further started offering 24 hours voice calling without any restrictions.
