BSNL removes fixed monthly charges for call-forwarding facility in postpaid

By December 24th, 2015 AT 3:36 AM

Earlier, BSNL had announced the launch of inter-LSA call-forwarding facility for its postpaid GSM mobile services. The optional inter-LSA call-forwarding facility to any BSNL Landline/WLL number for postpaid customers was charged a fixed monthly charge of Rs. 75. BSNL has now decided to remove the fixed monthly charge applicable for this service.


The call-forwarding facility is now available for all postpaid users without any monthly charges. However, all the calls forwarded from the postpaid customer’s mobile number under the call-forwarding facility will be charged as outgoing calls as per their base plan tariff.

Before the service was introduced, the call-forwarding facility was only available for BSNL prepaid users without any monthly charge. The extra monthly charges for postpaid call-forwarding facility was seen unreasonable as calls forwarded will be charged as per their base plan tariff.

I live in Maharashtra and ported out of BSNL as won’t able to forward calls on other operators number. What a foolish idea by BSNL not to forward calls to any other operator network. BSNL forced me to port out even though the services are good, people are not using because of such restrictions. Hope BSNL will understand the customer query.

It seems BSNL management is favoring other operators. Very Bad.

1. Call forwarding facility is more required a) From BSNL mobile to any network and b) Landline to other mobile network. Please promote it.

2. Usually promotion offers are only for prepaid subs. It is almost nil for post paid subs.
