  1. BSNL has to explore all the possible ways to generate income to compete with other private operators as otherwise, its losses will increase year after year and one fine morning it will disappear from the telecom field.The amount being charged for CLIP telephone is commensurate with market prices and reasonable, but maintain quality as otherwise people will not purchase from you.

  2. BSNL should purchase ordinary PBT instruments only from "Old and faithful" ITI (The Great Indian Telephone Industries, Bangalore) and CLIP telephone instrument only from Siemens/Panasonic . All others are cheap "Chinese Quality" instruments whose life were limited to a few months only for our humid & tropical climate .

    I am willing to pay more for Siemens/Panasonic make CLIP telephone instruments .

  3. is the caller id facility chargable even if the instrument is self owned.

    1. Caller ID facility is not chargeable, It is free service
