BSNL has introduced a new offer wherein it will give free sim cards to account holders off the “Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana”. BSNL will be providing free Sim card for the account holders of this scheme in the nationalized banks.
The Sim cards will be available at the nearest BSNL Customer Service Care or any of the BSNL retailers. Apart from the usual documents needed for a sim card the customers are also required to furnish the copy of the Bank passbook. This scheme will be available for 90days with effect from 08-09-2014.
This move seems to be part of the aggressive pitching BSNL is doing to regain its lost subscriber’s base. Mr Anupam Shrivastava, Director (CM) for the BSNL Board was heard quoting that “The Scheme has been launched as part of the BSNLs social commitment for providing communication facility to each and every citizen of the country. The customers may register mobile numbers with their bank to receive alerts and updates concerning to their bank account.”
