There was a notification in the newspaper yesterday that Govt / Ex. Govt employees will get 20 percent discount on the monthly bill of BSNL Broadband. Couldn't see any details in the BSNL site, not sure whether it is available only in Kerala.

Edit - Err, I see the link in BSNL site - http://bsnl.co.in/newsdetailed.php?news_id=437

Well, I have the copy of this order.. the order is applicable to all existing customers as well as new customers who belongs to the category (State/ Central/PSU employees both serving and retired) In this case of serving employees their application are countersigned by their Pay drawing officers stating the applicants are bona- fide.. while the Retired employees had to furnish the PPO copy.
In my belief the order is discriminatory and as it show favoritism among its customers.. concession to serving BSNL employees are different because most of the work under taken by the employees need internet connections..BSNL should extend the 20% discount to all bsnl customers who have uninterrupted connection atleast for more than six months..

(sorry for the trouble I am not able to upload the file properly. so removed the two files Below my post is mrbgupta has attached a pdf file. Only difference is mine is signed copy where as his is only a draft but wording is same)

Applicable to PSU employees/officers.Get a certificate from the paydrawing officer of the organisation (Accounts Officer) either separate;y or on the application that U are bona-fide employee submit with your attested identity card with your photo that is enough.. discount admissible from the date of application
accepted by the officer concerned/acknowledged by them.

@vishal
In such case discount is admissible from the remaining amount already discounted to U when U deposited in lump..however Accounts officer will ask clarification from Delhi.. U may file application subject to above. as discount is applicable from the date of application in ur case get the discounts in arears when they finalise ur application/

Please understand, not only rental is discounted but also usuage charges if any... For the UL customers who has no usuage charges rental only discounted..
let me explain the calculation.
I am having Home 500 plan. If my application date is 01-12-08 than the 20% discount applied the charges come to Rs400/- I'll get 1% discount on this charges as my payment is by ECS this reduce the charges to Rs.396/ than apply the service tax component(inclusive of educational cess) 12.36% amount Rs49/- added to above now the final payable bill is 396+49= is Rs445/-
Previously for the same charges I paid Rs.557/- So my total saving by this order is Rs112/- permonth.
