BSNL subscribers in the North East will now be able to make calls in the seven states of the region at local call charges from September 1.
Acceding to a longstanding demand for the region, BSNL has decided to lift the STD barriers among the NE states. An order to the effect was passed on August 12 and will become operational from September 1, BSNL officials said here today.
Department of Telecommunications (DoT), amending the earlier provision of three Licensed Service Areas (LSA) for NE, has created a single billing zone for the region for BSNL.
According to the new order, outgoing calls, SMSs and data charges while roaming will be charged as per the home LSA tariff while incoming calls on roaming will be free.
