BSNL should compensate the monthly rent with equivalent STD call to any one BSNL number, either landline or mobile, at say 10p/minute


This is a good initiative, but yet not sufficient to keep land line alive. I think BSNL should come up with some Unlimited Landline to Landline tariff any where in india at some reasonable amount per month.
