Pay telephone bills for prizes

The Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd has introduced prize schemes to encourage subscribers to pay on time. Winners among the scheme will be determined by a lucky draw and all eligible telephone subscribers will be able to participate. The scheme will be applicable at the level of the service area (Rs 5,000 as prize), circle level (Rs 4,000) and all India level (Rs 3,00,000).

The actual prizes would be an ITC card, A Hero Honda Bike and a Maruti Alto LX, respectively. A separate scheme is also being introduced to encourage defaulters to pay up by offering prize amounts linked to the size of the bill as well as an All India prize of Rs 2.5 lakh, or on Maruti 800 through lucky draw. The draw for September will be held on October 2.
