BSNL to Revise Monthly Charges for ‘General’ Urban and ‘One India’ Landline Customers

BSNL customers will have to pay more as Fixed Monthly Charges (FMC or rent) starting 01 March 2014 for two landline plans PAN India. The plans are once famous ‘One India’ Plan and General Plan. The change in general plan FMC would impact customers whose connections come under exchanges with capacity >= 30000 lines. Customers will have to pay Rs. 15 more per month.

bsnl one india plan

In several parts of India, particularly in Urban areas, people maintain a BSNL landline connection for broadband usage and the FMC structure is different in those cases. Hence, these changes would possibly impact a smaller subset of customers.

    when the morning newspaper increased its rate by 10 to 15 rupees nobody seen lamenting and discontinue it. But when it comes to BSNL why a lot of hue and cry. pls compare its the only product (service) ie cheaper

      Ya ya. You wil spend your week ends in shopping malls and spend 1000s of rupees. For increasing Rs.40, you will surrender the connection. What foolish !!!. Better get lost from BSNL. You and all do not know anything about BSNL’s honest service.

    This is ridiculous, bsnl should infact reduce FMC in order to promote landline usage. Then people who do not use BB will be encouraged to take a connection.

    looks like bsnl is trying its best in forcing land line customers cancel their connections..

      So increasing the rental by ~18(incl ST) makes Indian people hate BSNL (even more than they do now :) really no wonder our nation is in a perennial downward spiral !

    I dont understand why BSNL tries this hard to drive away its existing customers and mounting more and more losses.With 4g coming in even the broadband business with such bad speeds could seem less lucrative to customers.God save BSNL

      We are using bsnl broadband unlimited 950 plan and using a fair data of 50-60 gb per month @ decent speeds. 4mbps first 8gb and the rest @ 512kbps, but we are getting more than 512mbps after 8gb. what ever 3g or 4g came, which company will offer 60gb @ just 950. we don’t worry much if they hike a hundred rupees, using WiFi I am using it on my mobile and lap simultaneously for updation, browsing, downloads and all. Public sector will always serve the people, its our own, I dont understand many people go on criticizing public sector even though there is not too bad. But they don’t utter a word against foreign private companies who loot and provide capped services.

        Most probably you will lost all your speed after this post.and beware they will cap your connection at any moment and will give you a huge bill sayings that you have used more than your free data. So never trust BSNL

        • Md Rajaul February 19, 2014 7:35 pm

          @Anoop Don’t know how you are saying this. Haven’t seen he is using 950 unlimited in which data download is unlimited. Many of my friends are using this plan and never faced Bill above 950 + taxes.

        BSNL is best in broadband but it is that much worst in problem recording and rectification.

    • S.Sudhakar February 19, 2014 7:24 pm

      Spending Rs.15 + service tax more per month will not push you into debt and make you a beggar. Understood?.

      In BSNL, broadband service is up for more than 355 days in a year. All the private operators will loot out money and provide a shameless service which will only work 300 days or less in a year.
