The GSM division of MTNL has recently launched a tariff plan where Dolphin users can make unlimited local calls to Dolphin/Trump/Garuda/WLL/MTNL networks. This scheme is similar to the scheme MTNL had launched some time back under its brand Garuda. There’s an activation charge of Rs. 250 (which is currently waived off for a period of 3 months) and a deposit of Rs. 500 needs to be kept with MTNL.
The bill will include a monthly rental of Rs. 499 which is a sought of indirect charge the customer needs to pay for the unlimited usage to MTNL based phones. Local calls to all other networks will be charged at Re. 1 and calls to MTNL based phones in Delhi will also be charged Re. 1.
Overall the scheme is good and the biggest plus point is that you can choose any of the GSM handsets available in the market which was not possible with Garuda. Existing customers can also shift to this plan by paying the activation charges. So, if you’ll like the scheme then activate it within a span of 3 months so that you can save the initial activation charges.
Sanjay Bafna says
some missunderstanding in this artical/information.
1.The activation charge for NEW SUBSCRIBER not for EXISTING,so that NOW or after 3 month initial activation charges is NOT APPLICABLE for Existing Subscriber.
2.In MTNL Garuda CDMA/WLL service,Now Subscribe can choose his own choiced handset,bcoz MTNL
intrduced RUIM card FOR GARUDA subcriber and Subscriber can go for his OWN CHOICE any CDAMA Handset from market whatever he/she like.
3.From This Paln Subscriber can do Unlimited Local call to 40 laks MTNL MUMBAI phone like Any MTNL landline,GSM-Dolphin/Trump and Garuda-CDMA.
4.With Dolphin its Globle Mobilityand With Garuda there is limited mobility(Mumbai and Navi Mumbai)so there is some diffrence in services.
