BSNL announces 100 percent waiver on installation charges for landline and broadband connections

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL), the state-run telecom service provider, has announced a 100 percent waiver on the installation charges for CLSNP & new landline, broadband, combo, and FTTH customers. The promotional offer is available on across India till March 31, 2016.

Under the promotional offer, new as well as disconnected customers of CLSNP, landline, broadband, combo, and FTTH will not be charged any installation fee. At present, BSNL charges Rs. 600 for installation of landline connections and Rs. 250 for broadband connections. While a Fibre to the Home (FTTH) connection was being charged at Rs. 500 for installation.

BSNL was already offering waiver of installation charges as promotional offer in many circles. However, this is the first time BSNL has extended the offer across India. With the new move, BSNL is trying to revive its shrinking landline business and to attract more customers to its broadband services, which is facing stiff competition from private broadband providers.

Note: Do cross check with BSNL before opting it.

I agree with Sunny. After the installation, misfortune of the customer will start. However, I wish BSNL should stay.

Not interested. I will go without a landline but not go for BSNL junk. Their employess, mostly people with no passion for their job, make people run place to place for a new connection too! What will they do in case someone faces some problem? Better to avoid such unprofessionalism and use 3G or other options if available.
