BSNL offers last chance for clearing pending bills
Threatens legal action against defaulters
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 30: To realize the outstanding dues of Rs 40 crores, BSNL has decided to initiate legal proceeding against the defaulters, but not before giving them a “last chance.”
In this connection the company has re-launched a discount scheme giving an opportunity to the defaulting subscribers to clear their dues pending against them on account of their landlines/WLL and Mobile (Postpwaid) connections, which have been closed.
The discount scheme was launched on the eve of New Year. “The scheme has evoked a huge response and many subscribers have shown willingness to clear their dues,” it said in a statement.
The company meanwhile has asked the subscribers who have yet to respond to the scheme, to take advantage of this new offer. “For the subscribers who have turned defaulters it is a golden chance. Should they fail to clear their bills, we will be left with no option but take legal recourse,” it said.
The company said after clearing the dues pending against them, if the customer likes to remain with
BSNL, their connection shall be restored. “We are also mulling to publish the names of the defaulters in case they fail to clear their pending dues,” it said.
