New Delhi : State-owned telecom firms MTNL and BSNL are likely to launch new roaming plans from January 26 that will offer their subscribers free calls, sources told PTI.
“MTNL has plans to make roaming free for its customers on its network in Delhi and Mumbai without any additional charge,” said an official source.
He 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 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.
MTNL’s Mumbai customer will not have to pay any extra charge when they travel to Delhi, and same scheme will apply for its Delhi customers.
As per latest the data released by telecom regulator Trai, BSNL has 9.78 crore mobile subscribers while MTNL has 35.75 lakh customers on its network.
