BSNL launches Friends & Family benefits for its users in Punjab

The state-run telecom operator BSNL has now launched special Friends & Family benefits for its GSM subscribers in the Punjab circle. This move comes when it is facing stiff competition from private players in the business. So, they have launched the plan to bind their customers as they are losing out customers in the region.


Under this promotional scheme, all prepaid users (both new & existing) who are on the ‘Per Second Plan – PV 36’ or ‘Per Minute Plan – PV 37’ will get the benefits to add five local numbers to whom they can call at just 20p/min for on-net & 40p/minute for off-net numbers. If they wish, they can add one BSNL STD number in the Friends & Family list, which would be charged at 30p/min.

Ported in to BSNL 3 months back for free roaming & cheap 3G data (1 GB @Rs67).

In these 3 months I experienced the worst mobile services of my life. 3G data has too many disconnects and I have to press “OK” on flash messages (connection summary) 8-10 times while opening a website. I tried to use the data at roaming but could use at all because of poor connection.
Calls to were having the similar problem. I have to go out in the open to make a call. All this happens in the Chandigarh city.

if you travel to interior parts of hinterland, you will really admire that at least BSNL exists there……and you have some home……..No pvt players exist beyond cities and even if they exist, their services are crappier than BSNL
