BSNL mobile subscribers will soon be able to avail free calling benefits offered on their landline phone as the company is going to roll out a convergence platform which will sync subscribers’ mobile and fixed line connections. The company has invested over Rs 400 crore to modernise its landlines.
BSNL Chairman and MD Anupam Shrivastava says, “We are in the process of rolling out fix mobile convergence platform by Diwali. This will enable consumers avail value added service in mobile phones, make free night calls from mobile phones if they have subscribed to landline and host of other modern facilities”. He further adds, “The sync between the two accounts will be such that it will enable our subscribers receive their landline calls on mobile phones”.
Here it worth-mentioning that, BSNL has already launched free roaming scheme which enables its subscribers to attend free incoming calls while travelling anywhere in the country at no extra cost.
BSNL is also in the process to tie up with Hitachi’s ATM business unit which will allow its landline customers, who pay bill offline, to make payment anytime during the day. The customers of BSNL will be able to pay their bills at this ATM also as per their convenience.
