BSNL is the only mobile operator to offer mobile connectivity To Amarnath Yatris

By July 2nd, 2014 AT 10:13 PM

BSNL amarnath yatraBharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has provided mobile connectivity enroute Holy cave both from Pahalgam as well as from Baltal Route for amarnath yatris with the commissioning of the state of art technology Mobile BTS’s, the pilgrims can remain in touch with their families during the entire yatra. Needless to mention that BSNL is the only mobile operator, which is providing the mobile connectivity for the Amarnath yatris.

Kudos to BSNL for this kind of Social service where they can not even recover their Infrastructure cost for Mobile services. Being a single and only Govt Entity they are doing good job in some special areas and we expect that they should extend such good services in other general parts of country. We have high hopes on BSNL.

Private operators must learn how to offer telecom services in remote & special areas for the general public of India where revenue potential is low but essential services are required.

BSNL has also made arrangement for the sale of Special Amaranth Yatra SlMs at base camps both at Pahalgam and Sonamarg/ Baltal. The validity of the SIM is 7 days, which comes at the cost of Rs. 195 only with a talk time of 120 minutes to any network. However, the esteemed pilgrims have to submit the copy of their Yatra slip, valid POI/POA (Proof of address/ identity) and four photographs.
