BSNL stops free Sunday calls on landlines, CalTel for new plan
KOLKATA: State-owned telecom company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) will withdraw its free voice calling benefits from landlines on Sundays from February 1.
The decision comes soon after the company decided to curb free night calling benefits.
“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,” Calcutta Telephones (CalTel) Chief General Manager S P Tripathi told PTI.
That means, similar to any weekdays, customers will be charged on Sundays for landline/combo/FTTH broadband plans.
It will be applicable to both new as well as existing customers, he said.
The new plans are being sent to the BSNL headquarters for their approval and officials are optimistic about the plans getting cleared soon.
