Besides making the call rates, Airtel has also conveyed their condolence to all who lost their lives at the earthquake.

Nearly 918 deaths are reported from Nepal (as of the latest) due to the earthquake that shook the nation at a magnitude of 7.8, near Lamjung, Nepal. Many are injured and feared to be trapped under the leveled buildings. India too experienced the tremor during the morning hours.

BSNL too has announced a similar offer for calls to Nepal, offering only local call rates for the next three days. BSNL’s decision to cut call rates was taken following a meeting chaired by the Cabinet Secretary and with the approval of Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
