NTC Brings Stay Connected Offer with New Data and Voice Packs | 1GB Data at Rs. 20
Nepal Telecom has decided to give a 100 percent bonus to its customers on recharge. Telecom's decision came after several customers were having trouble buying recharge cards after the government implemented lockdowns to prevent the spread of corona infections. NTC has also added new data and voice packs during this lockdown period. NTC has added 4GB and 10GB data packs along with 60 and 285 minutes of voice packs.
This arrangement will be implemented on recharge only after 9 pm on Wednesday night i.e. 25th March. Nepal Telecommunication Authority on Tuesday directed the mobile service provider to give a bonus equal to the recharge amount as the citizens are unable to get out of the house.
Nepal Telecom has decided to provide a bonus balance amount as recharge so that it can be used within its network, said Dilliram Adhikari, managing director of telecom. According to him, the amount of such bonus can be used to run the data and even send SMS. If you call on networks other than Nepal Telecom, the main balance will be deducted. All the recharge amount will be doubled and the bonus amount is valid for certain periods only. Here is the list of bonus period according to the amount of recharge. NTC is providing more bonus validity to the customers who are recharging their phones with digital methods such as MPOS, digital payment gateways like eSewa, Khalti, IMEPay, and others.

Validity Extension on Wired Services
Nepal Telecom has also made a wise decision by providing an extension of the validity of services like ADSL, FTTH and other services looking at the pandemic situation. The list of validity extension of NTC services are:
- NTC to continue the internet services for ADSL and FTTH even if the deadline exceeds within the lockdown period. The services will not discontinue within the lockdown period even if you don't make any recharge or bill payment.
- NTC will not make you pay fines if you can't pay the bills during the lockdown period. You will have to pay for the services that you will use and you have used after the lockdown ends.
