New Delhi, India, February 04, 2014: Rajasthan BSNL has rolled out free roaming services anywhere in the country for its pre-paid mobile customers on a special tariff voucher (STV), under its new tag of One Nation: One number: One rupee.
GM-Marketing Sanjay Kumar said, “One Nation: One number: One rupee scheme started in which customers are required to buy a recharge through STV of 92 which will allow them unlimited free incoming calls for 90 days while roaming anywhere in the country. STV customers can make outgoing call (local and STD) at 1.50 paise per second. Two other STV vouchers of Rs. 5 and Rs. 67 have also been released with free roaming facilities to provide maximum facilities to pre-paid mobile users.”
In late-January, the state-owned telecom firms BSNL and MTNL were reported to be likely to launch new roaming plans from January 26 that would offer their subscribers free calls.
Sanjay added, however, that BSNL will also have a roaming plan for free calls, but its customers may have to shell out Re. 1 a day to avail of the facility. Several private telecom operators already offer plans under which, for a monthly or daily fee starting Rs. 5, people get all incoming calls without roaming charges.
