@Sanjay Bafna.
I totally agree with you. But some one or two years back Mr. A. Raja, ex-telecom minister had said that one day all local mobile call will become 10p/min and STD all over India any number 25p/min, when this mobile rate will come will LL sustain?

Arif :@Vaibhav4I agree with you but when the local call charge from mobile is 25p/min who will pay 1r/min by landline? Already PCO both are facing problem. Some thousand PCO in Bombay shut the business.

Hey say & write Mumbai instead of Bombay.
