BSNL offers free SIM for landline customers

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. on Thursday announced a unique offer where its landline customers can now take a free SIM card and make unlimited free local calls to their landline numbers, besides being able to make calls at reduced call rates.
“We have taken this initiative to boost the BSNL's mobile business and also arrest steep decline in the landline business. This is consistent with the role of BSNL as the truly national telecom provider with the core philosophy of connecting all parts of the nation,” Minister of State for Communications and Information Technology Sachin Pilot said after introducing the scheme.
In the promotional ‘Pyari Jodi' offer, customers can also call two local BSNL numbers at a reduced rate of 20 paise a minute and one BSNL number anywhere in India at a reduced rate of 30 paise a minute, without paying any additional monthly charges. On activation, customers will also get Rs.15 talk value, 1,000 local and national SMS each, and 1GB data free.
Mr. Pilot also launched special festive offers for 3G customers wherein all new activation will get one week unlimited data download free in addition to normal freebies. In this festive offer, the price of 3G data card had been slashed to Rs.2,000 from Rs.2,500 and 3G data vouchers are also offered at a discount. “This attractive scheme will help more and more people to avail 3G services,” Mr. Pilot added.
