call forwarding is not free. BSNL is treating these calls as if they are orginating from the subscriber mobile. on 6/08/2015 i have tested. My incoming call which was forwarded to landline had charged Rs.0.60 per minute.

when they are charging they should intimate the real fact. to the subscribers.

BSNL should not charge stv 72 for 90 days because they are charging incomeing call also.


BSNL you have to launch some SMS packs for low end users like RS.13, 250 sms(local and std) for 1 month validity.
RS.13, 250 sms is Just my example,after all some some packs for the low end users in kolkata.Please think about it.
Whenever I am going to activate any gprs pack like 7,14 I got reply,”error not in allowed list”.I am trying since last 4 months.Is this really a temporary problem in kolkata circle??
