I am very upset by seeing so so expensive call rates to Nepal . From Nepal we call India @2.90/min (Nepali Currency) ..but from India why do you charge so huge rates. Call rates to Bangladesh are so cheap . PLEASE reduce call rates to Nepal and make it affordable. Even 1.5p/min to Nepal will be a better option for we Nepali Students studying over here.
