BSNL Landline Plan Rental Charges revised now, at first time as slightly after the launch of unlimited free calling facility with out any extra charges. Many of the users are thinking that, this is a wrong decision by BSNL, but there are many reasons to decide this to plan with out giving any burden to BSNL Landline consumers to continue the free facilities for all Landline users.
BSNL is taking strategic, timely and need of the hour decisions, both Telecom Minister and CMD are there, backing BSNL to show its strengths, to make our own BSNL again a flag ship PSU of Brand India. In this regard BSNL is taking decisions where it will provide best service in the class and also not going to make losses.
BSNL is having above 36000 telephone exchanges, where in 28000 are located in Rural areas areas only, which are providing Voice and Broadband Internet facilities. For rural areas the capital cost and maintenance overheads are more. Do you agree or not. For example a small village will have an average of 10 to 15 landline connections or even in single digit, and for a Panchayat it will be around 100 to 150, where the perimeter is very very big with many kilometeres.
In the same line, to keep life for the rural telephony BSNL has just hiked monthly rental charges in PAN India of existing BSNL Landline Plans with respect to inflation from Rs.120 to Rs 140, and 140 to 160 in Rural area, for urban area it is from Rs.160 to 180 by allowing free calls too from Landline applicable with in BSNL Network, and also by continuing the unlimited free call facility from BSNL Landline to any network mobile and landline with in India between 9PM to 7AM without any extra charges having following tariff.
BSNL is the only company to give telephone services to rural India. So, as BSNL is giving services, we should encourage BSNL in all the ways. At the same time we should expect the best service from BSNL, which you definitely going to get. In near future all the BSNL exchanges are going to be migrated to Next Generation Network (NGN), and also BSNL recently introduced many flexible and affordable lowest tariff BSNL Broadband Plans according with that area required conditions.
Considering with all these above said points, BSNL has taken the right decision to hike a little bit on BSNL Landline Plan monthly rental charges of Rural and Urban India from 01.11.2015 without giving burden for Indian consumer pockets by continuing the BSNL unlimited free call.
