BSNL Withdraws STV-12, No More Free Incoming Calls on Roaming

BSNL Withdraws STV-12 No More Free Incoming Calls on RoamingRemember few days back, India’s National Telecom Back bone Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) launched exciting offers of  Unlimited Free Incoming calls while National Roaming with STV-12 as earlier we shared on TelecomTalk

Now BSNL has Call Back its STV-12 or STV-11 offer  just after the TRAI’s directive on BSNL over National Roaming tariff guidelines.

According to the BSNL’s official circular T&C-CM No.39/11-12 dated 20 July 2011, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India – TRAI has directed BSNL to withdraw the STV-12 / STV-11 with immediate effect as it is not in accordance with TRAI’s 44th amendment of CMTS / UAS license.

The withdrawal of STV of Rs. 12 with 15 days validity with the facility of free incoming calls while National Roaming in BSNL network, will be effective from today i.e. 20th July, 2011. However BSNL customers in any telecom circle across India who have already activated the above STV to avail the facility till the validity of STV.

So there is no more unlimited Free Incoming Calls while National Roaming with BSNL. Do share your view over TRAI’s move on BSNL’s exciting offer !

    TRAI IS REALLY AN NON SENSE ORGANIZATION. THEY CREATE ALL POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS AND THEN PLAY WITH OPERATORS AS WELL AS CONSUMERS.BSNL A GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF MR KAPIL SIBBAL WHO CLAIMS TO BE A TOP MOST LAWYER FAILED TO ANALYZE TRAI’S GUIDELINES. WHY THEY DONT COORDINATE BEFORE LAUNCHING ANY SCHEME.LAUNCH AND WITHDRAW SHOULD APPLY TO MINISTER HIMSELF. YOU ARE APPOINTED AS MINISTER NOW WITHDRAW YOURSELF AS YOU YOU ALWAYS CREATE CONTROVERSY ONLY. BROADBAND USAGE CHECKING WAS SO EASY BEFORE. NOW YOU MADE SO COMPLICATED JUST TO SHOW THAT YOU DID IT.IN THE OLD SYSTEM ONE CAN EASILY FIND OUT HOW MUCH CHARGEABLE IS USED AND HOW MUCH IS LEFT. PRESENT SYSTEM SHOWS TOTAL USAGE WITHOUT SPECIFICALLY MENTIONING HOW MUCH MORE ONE IS ENTITLED TO USE FROM THE ALLOWED LIMIT. YOU BETTER LEAVE THIS JOB

    Why everyone is trying to make loss of Bsnl. other operators are giving different plans for 1 or 2 days which is not in accordance with TRAI regulation,but TRAI is sleeping dog for them. If BSNL tries to become No.1 by it’s standard plans and vouchers which are regulated and well informed in their website TRAI is biting them or US (People are owner of BSNl). We should make move against this TRAI regulation.

    Its their network,if they want to provide service to their users why trai is showing them rule

    The only option available for us as a common man is to give a complaint to Public Grievance commission of India. But before that one must study the TRAI 44th amendment in detail. We can complain to the commission as TRAI misinterpreting the spirit of the amendment and thus removing a plan which was welcomed very much by common man. The link is pgportal.gov.in/Grievance.aspx

    It is the time for BSNL customers to protest the withdrawl of the STV-12. Govt( May be BSNL) is favoring PVT sector companies. When some other company introduce a tariff plan, it is not notified in writing expect a SMS or call center response to customers. So easy way for pvt companies to avoid the law.

    This trai amendment was given in the year 2007, when no of customers were less than half of what now are. The number of players are max four in a state.More mature market now.

    More over, It seems the amendment was given to protect the customers from higher charges on the name of higher rentals. At the same time, to protect the customer not subscribed for the roaming.

  • Chakrapani July 23, 2011 8:41 pm, 8:41 PM

    BSNL Customers need to write to ministry of IT & Communication and Trai over the rule.
    It is high time that Govt(May be BSNL) is favouring pvt sector, making the BSNL bankrput.

    Trai can never force the pvt sector companies, they can decide whatever on the name of competition.

    Moreover, this amendment was given to protect the customer from higher roaming charges, when the companies used to charge Above 100Rs

    The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) produced more evidence of corruption against former telecom minister A Raja in the 2G scam probe on Friday.
    CBI told the court that Raja used Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) to favour Swan Telecom.
    CBI said Raja forced BSNL to sign a deal with Swan Telecom for intra circle roaming and DoT officials who raised doubt on this arrangement were transferred.

    TRAI’s tariff order sets an upper limit for the operators to charge and no lower limit is specified. This has been done by BSNL on their own with no order from TRAI. This is a simple case of BSNL / Ministry of Communications & IT officials/ministers getting bribes to withdraw this offer. Ask BSNL for a copy of the directive from TRAI and you will not get any, because no such directive can be issued according to TRAI’s own rules in this particular case.

    Understandably, a hands-up situation ! The whole system is running anti-clockwise and the upped hands can offer some/little resistance and reduce the speed ! There is no way out to push-back/change the pace. Need a systemic change/replacement because the entire system is involved in neck-deep corruption. Anyway time will find a way out ! Till then churn-out impromptu solution, depending upon the situation, that is all ! However, please note the antidote (JanLokPal) is in the making which may, if taken, will cleanse…got it ? T

    TRAI Should allow BSNL to recover from losses by offering unique and market capturing tariffs…. If it is not India then the government would’ve supported this move instead suppressing this with directives which is also equal to favoring PVT operators…What about DOT’s reaction to it??? Did they serve for US or Corporate Companies???

    all calls(including roaming) @49 paisa/min & 1p/sec plans are avaiable for the lifetime customers also.
    In Kolkata circle now if you recharge with any amount(starting from top up of Rs.10) your validity will be increased. No need to recharge with Rs.200 to increase the validity.

    I am giving an example as my Rajasthan circle operators about increasing processing fee-
    In a top up of 50 Aircel, docomo and bsln provide 43.33 talk time and in same top up Airtel,vodafone,idea and mts provide rs 40 tal time instead of 43.33.
    I complained to these operators about this then I was replied that customer get night min with 3 days.
    I am asking to trai that why some operator are not providing actuall talk time and why they are providing useless onnet night min.
    And the same thing is with higher top up of 100,110 and 150 and much more.cel, docomo and bsln provide 43.33 talk time and in same top up Airtel,vodafone,idea and mts provide rs 40 tal time instead of 43.33.

    There is no need of validity extention voucher…it will automatically increase whn v recharge normal top up…

    why do you guys using this crap(BSNL)? bsnl is still costly 90 paisa call rates for lifetime customers and no lifetime at all only six month validity no validity recharge+dangerous 2G radiation + Busy channels

    Extra BSNL features-
    Complain solution : Impossible
    Nodal officer support: Not Available
    Apple Authority :D o not think about it

    We will atleast roam at 1p/sec tariff. Vodafone has increased its tariff in Gujarat. Now even V-V calls will be charged at 1.2p/sec V-Other Mobiles 1.2p/sec and V-L 1.5p/sec.

    Dear TT,

    Request you to please send all this feedback or tell to read all feedback to TRAI,
    DOT & I&T ministry.
    Is it possible, Please reply TT Team.

    bcoz TRAI is favoring Private operator,bcoz pvt. operator STV’s are very cheap for
    reducing call rate…

    i am BSNL user & i find BSNL is very good, recently bsnl has improved network in GOA. No call drop or no network congestion, even 3G range is very good.

    exactlyyyyyyyyy…. in Kolkata bsnl introduced RC43 , which provided all local calls @1p/2secs,,,but after 2months they withdrawn this offer,,,,,i think in this case also the top officials of bsnl of kolkata circle got huge money from VODAFONE, AIRTEL and RELIANCE….coz at that time VODAFONE, AIRTEL and RELIANCE had no promo to make local calls @ cheap rates ( like 35p/min (in voda or airtel) or 1p/2secs
