Landline customers under the landline plans mentioned in the Annexure with immediate effect.
b) To offer combo DSL Broadband Plans to EXISTING Landline customers as per the details given in
c) To withdraw all landline Plans, mentioned in the Annexure, for new customers with immediate effect.
d) Existing customers, who are already either under Annual/Two year/three year payment option for the
plans mentioned in the Annexure the above offer at para (b) shall be effective after the expiry of their
current Annual/Two year/three year subscription, however free calling facility shall be provided as
per para (a).
e) Further, existing customers, who have recently opted the plans mentioned in the Annexure under
monthly payment option the above offer at para (b) shall be effective after the expiry of Six months
subscription period from date of activation of their Landline connection, however for these customers
free calling facility shall be provided as per para (a).
BSNL will be informing all existing customers in the above landline plans in advance about the revision in
fixed monthly charges through SMS & Bills. All other terms and condition shall remain same. The above instructions shall be effective with immediate effect on regular basis in all the applicable
circles. This latest tariff revision is an attempt made by BSNL to reduce the number of landline plans to minimum. After the introduction of 24 Hrs. Unlimited Free Calling scheme with all landline plans, there is no significance for the existence of these different landline plans which were introduced earlier with varying free call benefits. We also expect that, BSNL will be launching new PAN India Landline / Broadband / FTTH (Bharat Fiber) plans very soon.
Recently, BSNL has revised its postpaid billing schedule for Landline, Broadband and Bharat Fiber (FTTH) customers in an attempt to maximize cash flow and collection efficiency as well as to minimize volume of unpaid bills. BSNL has decided to disconnect unpaid Landline / Broadband / FTTH customers on 22nd day from the invoice date. <<<Click Here to See Details>>>
