What about STV ? Rs.135 STV generally works in home circle only. Will it work in north east if home circle is Assam?

I am badly effected by the poor service of BSNL websites not working. I am from north east and at present in Delhi side. And my validity expired today and i didn’t find any recharge point to recharge my mobile. It is highly frustrating and bogus service of BSNL not working and it gives validity just for 3 months in north east states and expects to recharge mobile with 500 ruppees means with high denomination. I just don’t know what to do. I cannot make calls now from today. Also no customer care number working. You can call 123 only… Read more »

Being a Govt undertaking and eventually invested taxpayers’ earning, they are bound to provide such services to the tax payers rather just behaving like a private operator to accumulate money. Anyway…Der Aye Durust Aye!!!

Atleast the entire N.EAST people will have a valid reason to be delighted and to cheer it up. After a long time we feel that dot and BSNL have understood our cruical problem and did true justice.

San :
Why do the roaming valit within North-East only,Is it not important to provide roaming facility in outside of North-East and giving Roaming facilities of other state’s SIM within North-East?

Its for NE CUSTOMER OF BSNL so valid for North East region. Other state’s postpaid customer can Roam in North East as per DoT guidelines.
