BSNL free Sunday calling facility extended due to popularity


BSNL has extended the free Sunday calling facility for the landline customers by three months. With the help of this facility, the BSNL landline users will be able to perform calls to any other phone or service provider free of cost on Sundays. Previously, the state-owned company announced that the free calling facility will end on February 1. However, the plan has been extended until April 30.

The main reason for the continuation of the free Sunday calling is attributed to the huge popularity of the scheme across the country. The free Sunday calling facility was introduced on August 21, 2016, and was launched by the Telecom minister Manoj Sinha.

Recently, BSNL modified the broadband free voice calling timings from 9 PM to 7 AM to 10.30 PM and 6 AM. You will be able to perform voice calling for free from 10.30 PM to 6 AM and the change has come into effect across India. According to BSNL, the free Sunday calling facility will encourage people to make use of the landline instead of mobile phones. Moreover, customers can save a considerable amount of money on mobile recharging and monthly bills.

The Government of India has given great importance for the development of the mobile infrastructure in India. This is evident from the fact that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has allocated Rs. 10000 crore in 2018-19 or the creation and augmentation of telecom infrastructure.
