To attract new users, the state-run telco BSNL, has now completely waived off installation charges in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, and Gujarat circles. However, they are primarily offering Zero Installation Charges only to fresh users under the promotional offer period. Those who apply for new landline and broadband connections will be eligible for the benefit.
|100 % Waival of Installation charges||Chennai||New Landline/ New Broadband /Combo & FTTH connection|
|Tamil Nadu||New Landline /Broadband/ Combo connection|
|Gujarat||CLSNP Landline/ Broadband connection|
|* Valid for New customers #Do Check With BSNL Care|
Earlier, BSNL was offering a similar kind of scheme, but that was applicable only for a short-term period. Now they have announced that the above circles will get the benefits till the 31st of January, 2016. This move by BSNL shows that they are moving aggressively to bag more users.
This might be due to the data-centric player Reliance Jio’s entry could hurt them. Betting in these higher revenue generating circles, BSNL is also trying to get benefitted financially. However, customers these days prefer quality and better service support than price where BSNL lags definitely. So it is possible that customers won't jump to its network.
