Call drop irks BSNL mobile subscribers
People seek admin intervention
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, May 28: Mobile subscribers of BSNL have complained of frequent “call drop” even as they sought personal intervention of Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Dr Shailendra Kumar and the District Magistrate Er Farooq Ahmed Shah.
Sources said leave apart Aam Aadmi, even the officials have observed that the “call drop” snag was turning viral with BSNL. They said the network has been so poor that at times the DM has to make a dozen calls for conversation of a minute.
The subscribers have been complaining that the call often gets disconnected within 10 seconds. “We have to spend money 10 times more because one call needs to be made 10 times,” said a businessman adding “this way the BSNL is making manifold but undue profits.” “Given the huge clientele running in lakhs, how much they must be earning additional because of disturbance in call making?” argued a school teacher.
The residents of areas like Umar Heir Soura said the network was terribly bad there. “The signal virtually disappears after sunset,” said Ashiq Khan, a local.
When contacted a BSNL official said there was no such problem. “Still we will look into the matter,” he said.
