Telecommunications -- Within Easy Reach for Every Indian
At this instance, we need to extend our heart-felt congratulations and wishes to our Hon'ble Minister Dayanidhi Maran, for his next laudable effort in bringing in a cheaper and a singly charged long distance telephony in India.
Starting March 1, the state-owned BSNL takes pride in rolling out this prestigious service. Media reports and websites forecast that shortly other operators may emulate this for competition but there has'nt been any dates or announcements by other operators hitherto.
BSNL claims that with this novel scheme, the much scared long distance which is called as STD (Subscriber Trunk Dialling) may soon be an history. Quite interestingly, the CDMA-based telecommunications Carrier, Reliance has also brought in a scheme called One-India.
Definitely, this would be a win-win situation for both the telephone operators and the customers using long distance services.
