In the General Plan of FMC Rs 110 for rural areas, BSNL have revised free 75 calls (on any network) to 50 (on BSNL network) + 25 (Other network). For urban customer who pays FMC of Rs 140 and was getting 50 calls free now is allowed to make 25 free calls on BSNL On-net and 25 free calls on Off-net.
