With the recent COVID-19 outbreak and an impending pandemic on the surge, nationwide lockdowns have been imposed in most countries across the world. Nepal is also amongst them. Taking a leaf out of India’s major telecom operators’ book, the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) has insisted telecom regulators to offer COVID-19 “stay-at-home” packages for users. These packages even include “work-from-home” mega data packs as well. The three major telecom operators in Nepal are NCell, NTC, and SmartCell.
All of them have rolled out some luscious offers for their users, which include 100%-120% cashback in the form of wallet bonuses or vouchers. For instance, any user recharging their Nepal Telecom SIM Cards through major online mobile recharge portals will receive a 100% cashback of the same amount restored instantly in their e-wallets. eSewa, Khalti, and other E-Banking applications are currently offering these features after the NTA’s insistence.
NCell, on similar lines, is offering a whopping 120% cashback on similar recharge packs mentioned above, majorly cutting down on its profits during this economic slowdown just for the benefit of the consumers.
SmartCell has also risen to the occasion and introduced mega data packs at affordable rates just for work from home purposes. Their best deal includes a 20GB high-speed data pack at just Rs. 399, having a validity of 30 days. These prices and offers are decreasing due to stiff marketing competition. On the plus side, these telecom companies are using this opportunity to expand their customer bases to more cities in Nepal, luring them with eye-catching first-time recharge offers. To activate this offer, you can dial *141*3*2*1#.
