MTNL To Increase ISD Call Rates To 6 Countries

By January 31st, 2012 AT 12:45 PM

Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL), will increase ISD call rates to 6 countries from Rs.1 to Rs 2 per minute for its Land-line and postpaid mobile customers in Mumbai and Delhi telecom circle from 1st February 2012 and 5th May 2012.

According to our exclusive sources, the average ISD call termination charge has been increased in last few months, so MTNL has no option to increase ISD call rates to 6 countries namely USA, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Thailand and Singapore.

However the MTNL’s new ISD rate (Rs.2/min) is still cheapest in the Indian market compare to all other telecom operators offerings Rs.6 to Rs.10 per minute for the same. The ISD call rates was reduced by MTNL in June, 2010 as we reported earlier on TelecomTalk.

Now MTNL Landline users will be charged for ISD Call to USA, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand at Rs.2 per minute as by default tariff without any pack effective from 1st February 2012 and 5th May 2012.
