BSNL to slash call rates
Advertisement
#1
New Delhi, Feb 26 : In a step that is most likely to trigger another war on telecom call rates, state-run BSNL is reducing local call charges from March 1 to Rs 0.33 paise a minute and STD rates to 50 paise a minute in its revised landline/WLL tariff.

"BSNL has revised the landline/WLL tariff under all plans effective from March 1," said Minister of State for Communications and Information Technology Jyotiraditya Scindia in the Rajya Sabha today.

BSNL will launch a pre-paid mobile service called 'India Golden 50' which will bring in STD rates to 50 paise a minute.

The government said the successful bidders for grant of Mobile Number Portability (MNP) service licences will be announced by March 5 this year.

They will also be issued Letters of Intent (LoI) by this date. There is no delay in implementation of number portability, Scindia said.

The government issued guidelines for award of MNP service licence(s) last year. MNP is to be implemented in all metro and category A service areas within six months of the award of the licence and in rest of the service areas within one year of the award of the licence.

The minister said Rajasthan has no 3G spectrum available to be auctioned while the North-East region has only 5 Mhz of spectrum.
