BSNL Bihar Circle has achieved record new connection in December 2009. BSNL added 4,49,000 new connection, a feat which no other private sector operator could achieve in Bihar in a single month. Such a record from public sector company is a great acheivement, and must be congratulated.

This is second good news for Bihar, after the State was awarded for 2nd highest growth in economy.
