BSNL's head office in Delhi had released the circular ordering every other state and circle to update the information on their website as well. Further, it mentioned that the above order should be applicable immediately which means starting now till April 30th 2021, any user looking to get new broadband or a landline connection will not have to pay any installation charges.

For broadband-only connections, BSNL usually charges users Rs 250 as the installation charge. But for Bharat Fibre (Optic Fibre) connections, users need to pay Rs 500 as the installation charge. It is again Rs 250 for getting a broadband connection over the existing voice calling service.

In comparison to JioFiber, the broadband arm of Reliance Jio, this cost is minuscule. JioFiber customers are required to pay Rs 1,000 as installation charges that are non-refundable and Rs 1,500 for a security deposit against the ONU devices provided by the company. The security deposit is fully refundable though.
