BSNL ( Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited ) provides various telecom services to the customers in the form of Land Line, Broadband, Fiber To The Home being popular ones. As part of its BSNL UTSAV program, BSNL already waived off installation charges for Landline and Broadband customers. Also Experience LL 49 and Experience BB 249 plans are offered for first one year to all new customers. During non-offer time, BSNL charges a one time fee as Installation Charge on its Landline, Broadband and FTTH connections.
Landline installation charge is around Rs. 600 for rural and urban customers. Broadband installation charge is Rs. 250. For new FTTH customers, one time installation charge of Rs. 750 is added in the first month bill. Customers usually notice extra bill in the form of installation charge for these services in the very first month bill. Do not worry and think about these charges any more. BSNL announced its removal or waiver off installation charges in twitter as "Installation charges are now history".
Though this waiver off charges are valid for one year period, there is no possibility to bring back these charges, keeping in mind Jio's agressive addition of 4G customers and disruptive cheap plans.
