BSNL has taken the battle of cheap voice call rates among telecom companies to a new level by introducing unlimited free night calling on its landline phones. As per internal release, this step has been taken to popularize its landline services on PAN India basis. Under the revised tariff plans, BSNL users will be able to make free calls on any mobile and landline phone within India during night hours i.e. 9 PM to 7 AM.

BSNL also launched a similar plan back in 2012 at Rs 59 but later it was revoked. It’s a great opportunity for those who seek for cheap voice plans. If you think that your expenses on local and STD calls are very high, then switch to BSNL.
