BSNL has announced the revision of general landline plan for rural exchange with line capacity <1000. The new revised tariff will be implemented across all BSNL circles.
The fixed monthly charges have been increased from current Rs 90/month to Rs 120/month. Subsequently free calls have been increased from current 90 call to BSNL network to 120 calls to BSNL. Call charges beyond free calls remain unchanged at Rs 1/unit for BSNL calls and Rs 1.20/unit for other network calls.
The above Rural General plan is available only for subscribers under exchanges in rural areas with line capacity less than 1000. BSNL has been revising most of its landline plans for the past one year by increasing fixed monthly charges and limiting free calls to BSNL network. This is when BSNL landline subscriber base is shrinking day by day as users move away from costly landline service.
