    It cheated me many times, i used 574 plan from many months but suddenly they have removed the plan without intimating and i recharged just two days back and my money is waste. 574 was bsnl to bsnl unlimited std plan and now they give just 500mins free whats wrong with theses people who will waste 574 for just 500 mins..

    BSNL os becoming a big cheating company nowadays. according to your karnataka mitra plan charges are becoming hike. when i purchased bsnl sim it was given 10ps to 5 bsnl numbers tan after 1yr 20ps to 5 numbers, but suddenly after 6 months you people have increased it for 30ps and bsnl is not so useful to middle class people, kindly reduce the rates or if rates are so hiked people may stop using your service,there are many private competent company to provide good and low call rates

    I have a problem of call drop and no sound at first attempt. Most of calls are being charged double as I cant hear the callers voice on first call. Any remedy ? BSNL is deaf to customers complaints.

    BSNL customer care is really worst compared to private operators, you need to wait for 35 to 45min for CC to pick your call. Bsnl tariff is very compared to others bsnl to bsnl 1p/s others 1.2p/s only 200 sms per months, browsing 2p/10kb(increased from 1/p/10kb). Really it’s not a good deal.

    One problem of bsnl, call rates of 1p/sec bsnl net. 1.2/sec other net. Why two rules, this is too much, one benifit of bsnl is browsing rate is low comfare to other net. Okay i migrate to Airtel, good luck BSNL.

    but now operator like Airtel & vodafone has also started giving 1ps/sec for other operator calling also, then why still BSNL has stuck with 1.2ps/sec calling to other operator then??
