BSNL discount schemes off the air
Subscribers face inconvenience
Srinagar, Mar 9: Over a month on since the Home Ministry lifted ban on prepaid mobile connections in the state, thousands of BSNL customers face inconvenience as the Nigam has yet to restore the discount schemes that were previously in vogue.
The absence of discount schemes is forcing BSNL subscribers to shift to other operators offering variety.
To lure subscribers BSNL in 2009 had launched many schemes under its Special Tariff Voucher offering discounts on STD or local calls.
Rs 130 STV that was in operation last year, for example, would give a subscriber the freedom to make any local call on the same network at mere 10 paisa per minute. The voucher was to be recharged on monthly basis while there was also a scheme for STD calls.
But since the resumption of the prepaid services, the BSNL schemes are missing expect for Rs 45 STV which gives one paise per second call.
When contacted the GMT, BSNL said: “The DGM Mr. Koul could give a better reply.”
When contacted Koul said there was a doubt about the existence of the scheme. “Its there in the papers. But we will have to practically check it out, which will take time,” Koul said.
