Telecom and ISPs must place a customer service charter on their websites

From now on, Telecom companies (Telcos) and internet service providers (ISPs) will have to place a customer service charter (Badapatra) on their official website. The decision is made by the regulator after implementing the latest Bylaw Regarding Telecom Service Quality 2079.

In the charter, service providers must mention their name, address, email, and contact number. In addition, service availability and network coverage must also be stated.

The provision will greatly help customers receive vital information about the company they are subscribing to. It will also help customers avoid navigating through pages to find contact and other basic information about their service providers.
