As the government has enforced another lockdown due to the second wave of COVID-19, people have started work from home over the internet. Taking note of this, Ncell Axiata, one of the largest telecom operators in Nepal has brought a wide range of COVID-19 relief packages for its loyal customers.
Ncell expects its COVID-19 packages will help its subscriber stay connected with their friends and families during the hard times harbored by the deadly virus. The private telecom hopes to ensure everyone can keep in touch with their close ones in case of emergency.
The Lockdown Package Offers include massive bonuses on data packs, bonuses on recharge, work from home packs, Ncell Loan/Saapati, and etc. Let’s find all the details below:
Under this offer, you can receive an attractive data bonus on each recharge from the amount NRs. 50/- or above. If you recharge NRs. 50to NRs. 99/- you will be entitled to a 50MB of data bonus with 1-day validity. Upon recharge of NRs. 100/- to NRs. 199/-, you will get 100MB data for 2 days.
|Recharge||Bonus MB||Bonus Validity|
|Rs.50 -Rs. 99||50MB||1 day|
|Rs. 100- Rs. 199||100MB||2 day|
|Rs. 200- Rs. 299||200MB||3 day|
|Rs. 300- Rs. 499||300MB||5 day|
|Rs. 500- Rs. 999||500MB||10 day|

This package ranges from a very basic 50MB to 1000MB (1GB) with varying expiration. While 50MB is not enough for anything in the smartphone era, 1000MB of data can be useful for normal browsing.
If your internet consumption is low, and you do not browse much or stream videos, you are good with this package. But if you want data for better connectivity, there are more on this. Keep reading below to find packages offering a higher volume of data.
If you occasionally browse websites, surf on Facebook, and watch YouTube videos, this package may be suitable for you. When you buy a data pack, you also receive the same volume of data as a bonus.
|Price||Volume||Bonus volume||Total Volume||Validity|
|Rs. 249||3.5 GB||3.5 GB||7 GB||30 day|
|Rs. 399||6 GB||6 GB||12GB||30 day|
|Rs. 499||10 GB||10 GB||20GB||30 days|
If you purchase 3.5GB of data at NRs. 249, you will receive another 3.5GB as a bonus. You can also buy a 6GB pack for NRs. 399 that will give you a further 6GB in bonus doubling it to 12GB.
If you need data for the online classes, or meetings, and medium browsing, you can buy a 10GB data pack for NRs. 499. As the package doubles the data volume to 20GB, it will set you good for online activities that require consistent speed and bandwidth.
All the packages have the same expiration duration of 30 days. This offer is effective from Tuesday (May 4).
This is where Ncell’s COVID-19 relief package becomes most interesting. As the package name itself implies, this pack targets especially those who are working from home and require seamless connectivity online at an affordable cost. Let’s find out more in detail below.
Under this offer, you can buy a 2GB data pack for just NRs. 31 that will work on video conferencing apps (Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google Meet). Purchasing this data plan also gets you an additional 150MB volume with no designated time limit. However, the 2GB pack is valid between 6 AM to 6 PM.
|Validity||All time data||App data (6AM-6PM)||Price with Tax|
|1 day||150 MB||2 GB||Rs. 31|
|7 day||3 GB||14 GB||Rs. 127|
Similarly, there is another data pack option to get you more bandwidth. You can spend only NRs. 127 to get a 3GB all-time data pack which gives you a massive 14GB of data on the above-mentioned video conferencing apps. You can use 14GB data between 6 AM to 6 PM while 3GB has no time frame cap.
The Work From Home is the main highlight of Ncell’s Lockdown Package. The package is ideal for teachers, students, and other service industry employees who cannot afford to compromise on their internet connection and require a higher volume of data. Besides, it also comes at affordable costs making it a good choice for professionals and students during the lockdown.
Ncell has incorporated this offer into its lockdown package so that people do not have to worry about physical recharge cards. As lockdown has tightened in recent days, it is not easy to roam out and find recharge cards.
But this offer brings a timely relief to the customers as they can buy Ncell’s products and services from its digital platforms – Ncell App, Chatbot, and their website. Besides, they can also benefit from bonus data upon purchase of services online.
|Products||Price||Bonus benefit||New Benefit||Validity|
|1 day-150MB||Rs. 18||150MB||300MB||1 day|
|7 day-1.5GB||Rs. 98||1.5GB||3GB||7 day|
|14 days-2GB||Rs. 139||2GB||4GB||14 day|
|Social_7day||Rs. 109||0.5 GB more on social volume||1.5GB Per day Social + 2GB||7 day|
|Social_10day||Rs. 147||0.5 GB more on social volume||1.5GB per day social + 4GB||10 day|
|Social_30day||Rs. 459||0.75 GB more on social volume||2.25GB per day social + 6GB||30 day|
This offer gives the option of limited day packs as well as social media packs with varying expiration. If you purchase a 1day-150MB pack for NRs. 18, you will get another 150MB totaling 300MB with the validity of 1 day. Likewise, buying the 14 day-2GB plan will get you additional 2GB amounting to 4GB in total. The pack is available for NRs, 139, and is valid for 14 days.
Likewise, you can also receive more bonus data in Social packages. For eg. 7-day (Rs. 109), 10-day (Rs. 147), and 30-day (Rs. 459) letting you enjoy Triple Majja packs to connect and free stress during the lockdown.
As part of their COVID-19 package initiative, Ncell has made some improvements on its credit feature called Ncell Sapaati. Now Ncell customers can take Saapati of up to NRs. 80 at the existing charge.
|S.No||Product||Saapati amount||Service Fee (with tax)||Volume||Validity|
|1||Double balance Saapati||Rs. 80||2.55||*||*|
|2||Data Saapati||Rs. 80||2.55||1200 MB||7 Days|
|3||Voice Saapati||Rs. 10||2.55||15 Min||1 Day|
|4||Mini Data Saapati||Rs. 20||2.55||200 MB||1 Day|
Ncell now allows users to take credit data 1200MB for NRs. 82.55 (inc. service fee and tax) and pay later. This credit data offer is valid for 7 days. Likewise, users will be able to buy 15 minutes of talk time for NRs. 22.55 (after service fee and tax). This plan is also valid for one day.
Similarly, there is another data pack offer for minor browsing. Users can also take Mini Data Saapati of just 200MB at NRs. 22.55 (inc. service fee and tax).
Ncell’s COVID-19 Package is found to be diverse and rich with features. Users with different requirements can take up the plan and see through their lockdown needs. However, one plan may be better than the other.
As lockdown has forced us inside houses, internet demands are much higher than normal. That is why we believe the Work From Home plan could be very appealing to most. It is surprisingly affordable and also effective on video conferencing apps which is the reminder of Ncell’s precise strategy to benefit its users.
After from Work From Home Plan, Double Bonus Data pack could also be useful for those requiring more internet bandwidth. Similarly, we believe, Ncell’s Saapati/loan Plans are also generous as they provide call time and data credit (as with the first lockdown) and also very useful given the circumstances.
