With a nationwide lockdown being enforced in our country since the last few days, the medium of communication has been limited to mostly online platforms and phone calls. While many of us might be in lockdown with our families, a lot of us may be spending our time quarantined in different places. Therefore, in times of such a crisis, everyone is eager to communicate with their loved ones to know how they are doing. For this very reason, the Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) directed all national telecom to provide a bonus on recharge and come up with offers.
Nepal Telecom itself has decided on providing a 100% recharge bonus on all recharges over Rs 10 either through recharge card or through online portals like eSewa, Khalti, Banks and more. This means that if you recharge the Rs. 50 amount on your NTC SIM card then you’ll receive an additional bonus balance of Rs50 for free.
For Nepal users, you can Dial *1415*55# to check Bonus amount and validity or you can check it on Nepal Telecom’s app.
Similarly, Ncell also announced that it will be providing its users with a bonus balance of 120% on every recharge. However, Ncell has set the minimum recharge amount to be at least Rs50 to gain the additional balance.
Some other criteria to be noted for both NTC and Ncell users are that the bonus balance cannot be transferred, it can only be used in the same network, the validity of the bonus amount depends on the recharge amount.
Smart: Intriguing Data Pack Offer
Besides these offers from NTC and Ncell, SmartCell has also come up with a great offer for its users. You can now get 20GB worth data pack at just Rs399(exclusive of taxes) which is valid for 30 days. This is a pleasant offer for all of us working from home or having online classes. Even if we aren’t doing any of these it is still useful to browse the web and to stay connected during this outbreak.
To activate this offer, you can dial *141*3*2*1#.
You can use Digital Wallets, Mobile Banking Apps for recharge.
