BSNL revises voice tariffs across all the circles

As a part of its efforts to rationalise voice calling tariffs, BSNL has now made several changes to some of its Special Tariff Vouchers (STV) across India. Basically, the company cut down validity in some vouchers while adding freebies like talk-time in some other vouchers.

The top Management of BSNL are agents of private Telecom Companies and they deliberately devise foolish plans, so that the remaining BSNL customers port out to private Teclcom Companies.

One of the main issues with BSNL is their extremely confusing STVs. They hiked the much popular STV 151-400mins and reduced validity to 27 days. BSNL is setting new examples of absurd validities. Already UP E has telenor which has extremely competitive rates. Even aircel is good and it has good 3G too. BSNL simply needs to analyse what they do. Every time they launch an awesome plan and later ruin it by reducing validity multiple number of times. this sucks!
