BSNL to withdraw free promotional calls awarded to new landline subscribers who own phones with built in caller ID

By August 18th, 2015 AT 11:21 AM

BSNL after its fifth consecutive year of reporting operational losses, has decided to cut corners to save on the expenditure.

Several measures have been implemented to bring down the capital and operational expenditure of the company.

In its latest move the PSU has declared it will no longer be crediting its new landline connection subscribers with free 300 metered call units (MCUs) if they have their own phone hardware with an inbuilt caller line identification presentation (CLIP).

This will take effect from 1st September in all 20 circles where BSNL has service.

The government is taking several measures to revive BSNL and MTNL which are both loss making PSUs. Measures like refunding money for surrendered BWA and CDMA spectrum have already been taken and more recently BSNL’s tower infrastructure was monetised by hiving off 65000 towers into an independent subsidiary company. In the future the government may consider merging both PSSUs into one entity.

Baseless.

Anyway customers were happy with caller line cones to landline.

Now why would u want to receive calls of unknown person when caller id is not there .

It’s those senior citizen who still do receive unknown calls and happy to get free calls.

All biz person may be misusing it , so that BSNL has decided.

Now wait for portability in landline and all those commercial user will jump to Tata, Rcom, mts, and Vodafone, who will provide wireless landline(popular name WALKY) along with caller id.
AND AIRTEL marketing team WILL be struggle to capture one customer to use 3g/4G and wireline broadband.

Portability in landline will not happen. At least, not in the near future.
