  • Col Naresh Ghai January 11, 2014 4:23 pm

    BSNL staff is highly paid by Govt and rewarded by private telecom players for failing BSNL fast, that is why while roaming you cannot talk properly despite paying extra a minimum of 75paise for 1 sec to 1 min; moreso you cannot charge through SMS or on line (Rs.67 for 30 days for BSNL Punjab). So is the service (bad) for frequent failures in Broad band service: Col N. Ghai, 9417413510

  • Antony Vincent November 10, 2013 5:24 pm

    Rs.5/- plan for incoming call free while roaming is excellent whereas the way in which it is activated not at all explained by the BSNL.

    BSNL needs to be delivered it in anywhere in their BSNL site itself.

  • Antony Vincent November 10, 2013 5:22 pm

    no one goes for offers. People go for better network. and first and foremost it should improve its customer care service. For half n hour call is kept on waiting. No one answers to the query.

  • V Shankar July 21, 2013 6:22 pm

    just checked with customer care of bsnl ap circle. they don’t have a clue of the stv5 and stv69. checked wbsite of ap bsnl. no information at all. wonder why bsnl cannot have a uniform policy in all circle for launching these beneficial stvs?

  • Yogesh Lahoti July 18, 2013 2:00 pm

    But Roaming incoming free services are not available in Delhi + NCR & Mumbai as talk at customer service of BSNL bcoz of MTNL network,
    So is there any solution of this?

    • S.Sudhakar July 19, 2013 6:57 am

      I have called BSNL Tamilnadu and clarified. They said that incoming calls even in MTNL network will be free when using Rs.5 or Rs.69 pack.

      One more benefit : Your home network booster pack will not get cancelled eventhough it is not applicable while roaming.

  • Sathish, Gobichettipalayam. July 18, 2013 11:33 am

    For BSNL TN & BSNL Chennai Customers:

    You can activate these two STV – Roam in two ways:

    1. e-Recharge / Online Recharge mode.

    2. Self Activation at any time via SMS mode.

    BSNL Advantage:

    If you do SMS mode activation, the SMS keyword is Roam5, Roam69 to be sent to 53733 (Toll free).

    Amount to be deducted by INR Rs.4.45 & Rs.61.41 respectively in your main balance.

    If you have already done – any BSNL FTT offer recharge, here you can save 11% (55 Paisa / per day and Rs.7.59 / per month) as we compared with e –recharge mode activation.

    This is one of the best examples for BSNL transparency.

    Private operators are always ‘double-time charged’ as service tax/service charges while their customers are made self activation of any kind of STV.

    Many of the Indian mobile users are not aware of it.

    You never expect such kind of transparency/facility on any private operators in India.

    • Antony Vincent November 10, 2013 5:27 pm

      Thanks Sathish,

      You have done very good job and also given a right word to BSNL.
