We hope that you know the current events taking place with the public sector telecom company, Bharat Sanchar Nagar Limited (BSNL). We have covered stories concerning it frantically. Just yesterday we informed you about the final go for the merger between BSNL and another telecom PSU MTNL, both of which have been recording heavy losses since the past 10 years. The total debt on the two firms is around Rs 40,000 crore.
In an attempt to revive the two companies and make them profitable, the govt approved a Rs 69,000 crore revival package for the two, which included ways through which these two’s assests can be monetized. Among this package, was the government funding of Rs 17,160 crore too, for the VRS scheme of BSNL employees, a thorough layout on which we’d provided you with earlier.
What’s come in just about fresh, is the cashback spree that BSNL is striding on these days. BSNL has annouonced to credit 6 paise cashback for every SMS sent via a BSNL number. This is an extension of the “6 paise cashback for every 5 minutes’ voice call” offer that BSNL launched last month.
6 Paisa Cashback for Every SMS
Amidst all the commotion and pandemonic state of the employees of BSNL over the government’s decision to merge it with MTNL and more, it comes as a surprise as to what BSNL has just chosen to do for its customers.
So last month, the company announced to credit a cashback of 6 paise for every five minutes of voice calls placed by the subscribers. It is now taking this offer one step forward and applying the same offer to SMSs.
BSNL will offer a 6 paise cashback for every SMS you send from your BSNL phone number. To activate this offer, all you need to do is type “ACT 6 paisa” in the SMS compose box and send it to 9478053334. Doing so, you’ll start receiving cashback of six paise for each SMS you send. This offer is available for landline, broadband and fiber till 31 December 2019.
Speaking of its cashback on calls, BSNL will give 6 paise for every five minutes of voice calls placed by the subscribers. The offer is applicable on BSNL’s wireline, broadband and FTTH customers. The money is credited in the form of cashback to the subscriber.
