Telephone calls made on BSNL network to Nepal for the next three days will attract only local call rates, the State-owned company said.

The move is aimed at enabling Indians to connect with their near and dear ones in Nepal.

A decision to cut call rates was taken following a meeting chaired by the Cabinet Secretary and with approval of Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. The normal charge for a call to Nepal costs Rs. 10 a minute.
