BSNL supplies the mobile numbers to hell out of marketting people to make money. I got an SMS from 12630035 number saying you can chat with people without mentioning the mobile number by subscribing to the facility for Rs.30/- per month and each time you call to chat with male/female friends already subscribed will be charged Rs.2/- per minute. I tried subscribing to this to check how good is this chat option on BSNL. At the first instance when I chose to subscribe by calling the above number and selecting the options I got my voice recorded that will be played when other people would opt to chat with me.
After getting subscribed to this I started getting so many SMSes with names of people and their chat IDs. I tried to chat with couple of chat IDs and finding that it is not really live chat but it is all end up listening to recorded voice message only. I was waiting on the call if someone really come and speak live which never happened.
BSNL is cheating the customers this way and making money. BSNL should be restricted to supply the mobile numbers of the customers to marketting people from which BSNL is generating revenue. Government should take action against such things. Not sure where the government is sleeping and just watching the drama and people in the government sing songs about stopping corruption and misuse of individual's privacy. BSNL has no right to supply the mobile numbers to marketting people and BSNL has no option to stop these marketting SMS or calls that are disturbing and causing monetary loss to customers.
BSNL employees are living on the revenue earned by such useless marketting stuff, it is better that they resign to their jobs as they are getting the money in all bad ways that they are earning.
