  • Dinavahi Gopala Krishna Murthy May 31, 2012 8:48 pm

    On Nestham Plan I am supposed to get 200 SMS Package as mentioned. But, when I tried to send SMS, it came as “SMS sending failed”. On asking Customer Care, the person on duty informed me to call the Message centre i.e, +919442099997. But even after calling the Message Centre No; found it switched-off. God knows when this BSNL gear up it’s standards in customer care in attending the calls and complaints. Very poor service.

BUT HOW & WHERE? i DOUBT YOUR OFFICIALS LOOKING INTO THE COMMENTS HERE AND REDRESSING THE GRIEVIENCES EXPRESSED BYN THE CUSTOMERS. WHAT ACTION IS TAKEN TO LOOK AFTER THE GRIEVENCES?

  • S.Pankaja Rao November 17, 2010 11:28 am

    Sir, Recently I shifted to Nestham in which we are given 200 sms free every month. but unfortunately and surprisingly for every sms, three to four sms are being cut. I tried customer care centre whoich is also futile. Even some of my friends who shifted to Nestham scheme area also facing. we feel it is cheating and disappointing that unnecessarily our free sms are going waste for which we are entitled to…Please look into this and suggest a way out. Otherwise we feel vennela super plus is better.

    how is the signals of BSNL in Kolkata?

    BSNL is quite unpredictable in Kolkata and fluctuating a lot
    suddenly from full signal its signal drops to zero in a second
    overall it is 3rd best GSM after Vodafone and Airtel

    Great plan from Great Indian Operator, only 5 numbers not good it should be 10 numbers. Good thing is lifetime validity, per month 200 local sms to any network absolutely free, Roaming & local call charges are in per sec billing without any monthly rental & without any hidden charges also without any term & conditions like other private operators. Great BSNL AP

  • Subin July 17, 2010 11:02 pm

    Hope other operators will follow this

    @Kaushik Roy

  • pramodh July 17, 2010 10:45 pm

    Also no migration voucher to this plan from other plans, we have to take new connection and other n/w calls 1.2 paise is not good

  • -!GS!- July 17, 2010 10:02 pm

  • Keshav Jha July 17, 2010 9:59 pm

    Awesome. Very nice plan, but 1.2p/s has reduced the beauty of the plan.

  • rajiev July 17, 2010 9:50 pm

  • Raghu July 17, 2010 9:06 pm

    for local calls. other than group members is not a good offer

  • Raghu July 17, 2010 9:06 pm

    they should have launched uniform tariff of 30p/min

  • RAM July 17, 2010 8:59 pm


  • Anirban July 17, 2010 8:45 pm

    plus point of this plan is rent free group call & on-net 10p/min & other 30p/min
