MTNL, BSNL to offer free unlimited night calls from today
MTNL has decided to introduce unlimited free local calling for its landline and broadband customers (Combo) between 2200 HRS to 0700 HRS to any network.

New Delhi: State-owned telecom operators BSNL and MTNL are introducing free local calling at night for its customers to any network starting May 1.

"MTNL has decided to introduce unlimited free local calling for its landline and broadband customers (Combo) between 2200 HRS to 0700 HRS to any network. The free unlimited calling facility is also available for Delhi MTNL landline customers to any network to Mumbai and vice versa during the same hours," said MTNL in a statement. The STD call charges have also been made local by making call charges rate at 180 sec/pulse.

BSNL also goes an extra mile to revive its landline business by introducing an unlimited free calling scheme during night hours. The scheme, effective May 1, allows users to make calls free of cost to any operator, including mobile phones, anywhere in the country between 9 PM and 7 AM and covers all types of connections, BSNL said in a statement.

"There is no end date fixed for this scheme. We will review it after six months," said BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava.

According to the latest TRAI data, BSNL, which dominates the landline space, was the biggest loser of fixed-line customers in February whereas Airtel emerged as the top gainer. The company had over 1.66 crore landlines at the end of February.

MTNL, on the other hand, had 11.4 lakhs wired Broadband service subscribers as of February this year.

India's telephone (wireline) subscriber base stood at 2.67 crore at the end of February 2015 of which MTNL accounts for over 35 lakh subscribers.
