BSNL has announced an unlimited free calling scheme for its landline users that will allow them to call any landline and mobile number across service providers in India from May 1.
"This unlimited free night calling shall be available from 9 pm to 7 am," a company statement said on.
The scheme, seen to help BSNL boost its landline business, covers all major landline general plans of rural and urban areas, landline special plans and all major combo (landline and broadband) plans.
"BSNL landline phone offers voice clarity. Now landline customers can make unlimited calls comfortably anywhere in India to all networks from 9 pm to 7 am without paying call charges," the statement added.
According to latest data from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), BSNL, which dominates the landline market, was the biggest loser of fixed-line customers in February while Airtel emerged as top gainer.
The company had over 1.66 crore landlines at the end of February. Even after losing 162,556 landline customers in February, the company dominated the market with 62.26 per cent share.
