I agree with the above comments,but how many rural people have heard of 3G or know what it is?For the old people,whose sons/daughters work abroad they can get a glimpse of them with this as there is no need to buy a 3G phone,which can’t be afforded by them,so this video call booth is one time payment and can happily see their loved children!! now tell me isn’t good?

Sahil Shah,
It is not telephone booth. It is 3G video call booth.

Airtel charges Rs.11 per minute for a voice call to Kuwait (Gulf country). I tried video call, Rs.20 per minute was charged !!!!!!. Better to continue video chat over broadband itself.

It good to start something new. But tell me how many are using telephone booth nowadays? Today in the world of computers and mobiles almost everyone uses internet either from computer or mobile so why not use the free video call service via skype or yahoo msg. Btw what are the call charges?
