New Delhi, Oct 27 (IANS) State-owned Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) Friday reduced the tariff for its One-India Plan.

'We have reduced the rentals for our One-India Plan to Rs.180 from Rs.299,' MTNL chairman R.S.P. Sinha told reporters while declaring the company's financial results for the second quarter of 2006-07 here.

The charges to fixed wireline network have been reduced to Re.1 per 180 seconds pulse, and to other networks Re.1 per minute is same for intra-circle (up to 50 km) STD charges. However, inter-circle STD call charges will now be Re.1 per minute.

MTNL currently has about 100,000 subscribers for the One-India Plan who will automatically be shifted to the revised plan. Others can also opt for it without any additional charge.

'Compared to the second quarter of 2005-06, this year we have seen a phenomenal increase in our revenues,' he said.

However, the company experienced a dip in its income from services compared to last year.

'This year during the second quarter we have generated Rs.12,204.16 million from services, compared to last year's Rs.12,767.56 million,' said Anita Soni, director (finance).

The company posted a growth of 42.02 percent in income from mobile services, which is Rs.1,285.89 million this year.

The chairman also referred to the upcoming IPTV (Internet Protocol TV) that the telecom firm is going to launch from Nov 1 for its subscribers in Delhi and Mumbai.

'We started working on this IPTV project a year back and we hope to launch it by 1 Nov. And we are sure, with its launch, we will soon cross more than 300,000 subscribers in a short time,' Sinha emphasised.

IPTV is content delivered on television screens through a broadband Internet connection.
