    Default BSNL offers mobile connectivity To Amarnath Yatris

    The Amarnath Yatra has started and previously many pilgrims had problems contacting family back home, but now because of BSNL, communication would be easy. BSNL has started connectivity to Amarnath yatris, connectivity is available from the Holy cave from Pahalgam and Baltal.

    BSNL providing their connectivity to such areas, there is high hope that other remote parts of the country will also get BSNL connectivity. By seeing such moves by BSNL hopefully other service providers will be able to provide their services as well.

    Along side providing connectivity BSNL is also providing special Amarnath Yatra sims, which give a validity of 7 days and cost of the sim is Rs195. With this the user gets talk time of 120 minutes. This offer is only valid for yatris and to avail this offer from BSNL they will have to show their yatra slip and other proof of ID.

    That is a good initiative. I wonder if something similar could be done for Vaishno Devi visitors because prepaid sim cards do not work in J&K and majority of people only use prepaid and cannot call back home while they are there which is a bit off putting.

    Well done BSNL! Do it for Vaishno Devi too

    Yes it would be good to have something similar for Vaishno Devi, as if you have a prepaid connection keeping in contact with family when visiting J&K is a big problem. Although the sim card validity should be for max 5 days which is the max needed for a visit to Vaishno Devi.
