If BSNL is trying hard to gain profits by next fiscal through such round of measures it would be best idea to give a plate to all BSNL Employees including CMD and tell them to sit next to cinemas theatres, Malls, Temples and Signals. They will earn Profit not in next fiscal, in this fiscal itself.

Hahahaha who’s surprised?? This promotional pack was nothing but trick to fool people into migrating from lifetime to per minute/per second plans which need bi annual recharge. You can choose any pack but if you calculate, the per minute rate won’t ever come below 35 to 40 p per minute. When they tell you that you’d be paying 10 or 20 p per minute, don’t forget that you’ve already made upfront payment as STV price, you aren’t getting reduced call rate for free.
