Earlier in August 2016, BSNL had announced a Freedom Offer which allowed its landline customers to make free unlimited voice calls on Sundays without any extra overall charges.

As part of the offer, customers could make the free calls without any time constraints and to any network they wanted, regardless of it being landline or mobile.


Timings of free voice calling on weekdays already changed

The news comes shortly after another BSNL's announcement adhering to which the company changed the broadband free voice calling timings on weekdays.

While earlier BSNL users could make free calls on weekdays between 9 PM and 7 AM, they can now do so between 10:30 PM to 6 AM.
