Hello Mr. Bafna,

I want to ask couple of questions. Looking forward to your response:

1) Where can I get a new BSNL 3G and EVDO (both prepaid) connection in Thane District of Maharashtra (direction – closer to Thane Main City)?

2) Can you suggest some shops (with name and addresses) that keep BSNL Sims for purchase? As the last time I went to Kalyan, Ambarnath, Dombili, Ulhasnagar, – there were no shops that kept new BSNL connections.
The BSNL Offices there have inefficient people.
