BSNL Landline & Broadband safe custody plan

BSNL Safe custody plans

I have got a message from one of BSNL subscriber regarding temporary closure the telephone for a particular period of time. I have enquired the same from nearest customer service center of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited. They informed me an unknown plan which is vital for all  BSNL Landline & Broadband subscribers. Suppose you are going outside with a whole family from your home for one month or more. There is no one to use the landline phone and broadband. Then you can opt for safe custody plan. It is a very less known tariff of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited.

Landline safe custody plan charges

A subscriber needs to fill a tariff change application for subscribing the facility, and he should submit it to BSNL office. Telephone Safe Custody charges are 50/- per month for urban area and Rs 30/- per month for rural locations. During safe custody, your landline phone will be disabled, but telephone line will be there. It means your port or circuit will remain reserve only for your connection and BSNL same can’t spare it for another customer. Same is applicable for your telephone number also. You can restore your phone anytime by submitting written application or filing form to BSNL.

Internet safe custody tariff

There are some nominal charges for primary telephone custody whereas Broadband Safe Custody is free of cost. Procedure for applying this facility is same as stated in above para. Internet safe custody is more important than landline due to limited internet ports available at telephone exchange side. So next time doesn’t forget to take advantage of these tariffs.


    1. There is no particular form to restore the phone from safe custody. Just write a letter on plain paper & submit to the concerned officer at BSNL Office. Do remember to take a receipt copy of the application which you may require in future.
