New Delhi, Dec 1: Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) has increased the pulse rates of STD calls from landline number to any other landline number across the country.

According to the new plan, the pulse rate for STD calls increased from 1 minute to 3 minutes and will be effective from Wednesday, Dec 1.

Now, BSNL landline users can call to any other fixed line networks having less than 10 digit numbers throughout India. This facility will be opened to all existing customers without any special activation for STD facility.

"Customers will now be able to talk for three minutes in one call unit charge, which varies from 80 paise to Rs.1.20 depending upon the tariff plan. With this, long distance calls from BSNL fixed line to any fixed line customers have now become cheaper than that of mobile," Minister of State for Communications and IT Sachin Pilot said.
