  1. many of the customers is having a doubt, that if a BSNL Caller ID Landline telephone instrument is chargeable with any amount, even if the instrument is self owned.

    1. Few years ago, the old instruments were replaced with CLIP instruments free of cost for those customers who used to pay their bills with higher amount; but now BSNL is charging for these instruments for new customers. If the instrument is self owned , the rebate must be asked.

  2. BSNL is trying to explore all the possible ways to generate income to compete with other private telecom operators, so that only BSNL increased caller id telephone instrument charges for new customers.

  3. Sir,
    If customer is opt for his/her own instrument , then there is no charges.

  4. BSNL is trying to cheat the old customers.I was having the same instrument installed at my residence telephone no 0172-2711818 (Chandigarh) Somehow one day the telephone gave some problem ,I contacted the department, they replaced it with their own instrument with some cost ,and did not return my instrument witch was more costly I made several requests to give back my instrument ,but they have not returned. The instrument provided by the department after six months use has gone out of order, I again has made several requests to the department for the replace. but no action. I suggest the Department to change the Telephone Instrument "FREE." of cost of those customers who are having Ten years or more old connection.and paying more than Rupees one thousand monthly bill. I hope the department will agree with me and will issue the instructions to change the telephone instrument " Free Of Cost " Thanks

  5. In the cases where the Instrument is OWNED BY THE CUSTOMER the question of EXCHANGE should not come in way. In so far as, the BSNL has declared to provide this at a same amount of Rs.600/- which is a market price as mentioned. BSNL must not insist for OLD PHONES as it may akso the case with series of Costomers who have not been given back it being "Junk".

  6. It indicate that BSNL haS STARTED TO TAKE last breath. As this deptt. know very well that maximum public are against the BSNL due to their poor services So the time has come when most of the consumers will sullender their telephone connection for which BSNL will be responsible only .

  7. BSNL is not having care about their customers, and their employee are non co-operative at anytime

  8. My phone provided by BSNL is a CLIP phone but caller id is out of order. I requested them to repair the same but of no result. This is the state of affairs of BSNL
