BSNL reduces discount on broadband bill for Central/State Government and PSU employees from 10% to 5%

By September 18th, 2015 AT 6:00 AM

BSNL thee largest PSU who is hard at work reshuffling all its products and services across the country, has cut down on its philanthropy with discounts offered to Central government, State government and Public sector unit employees on their DSL, Wi-Max and FTTH broadband bills.


Before 2013 BSNL used to offer 20% discount on the broadband bill amount. From 30th September 2013 this discount was cut down 20% to 10%. Now the discount has further been reduced to 5%. The changed discounted tariff will come into effect from 1st October 2015.

BSNL has registered a profit of Rs.486 Crore in Kerala circle in financial year 2014-15 which is higher than the profits registered in FY 2013-14 of Rs. 411 crore and in FY 2012-13  of Rs.287  crore. Kerala continues to remain a profitable circle for the PSU though the company is struggling on a Pan India scale.

We recently reported that BSNL will be replacing EvDO data cards in Andhra Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab circles with 3G data cards free of cost, since they have surrendered one CDMA carrier in these circles which has affected its subscribers.

They are using this connection because they are getting this very cheap. If any govt. employee want to move to Airtel … go ahead. If possible also seek a job there to become one of Airtel’s employee as they are… Read more »

BSNL has gone mad!! Government employees are using BSNL because of this discount… Now many people will give up BSNL broadband… Airtel has good offers than BSNL these days… BSNL is just looking for short time gain… In the long run, this will prove to be disaster for BSNL… In the middle, they provided great offers… So, they got more customers… Now, they’re again increasing the prices, again the customer count will begin to fall… Especially, during the rise of 4G, such stupid ideas of BSNL will definitely push it into further loss…
