Telegram service to close at 9 pm


The 160-year old telegram service in the country will operate for the last time today, July 14. 

“Tomorrow is the last day for telegram services. The service will start at 8 am and close by 9 pm,” BSNL CMD R K Upadhyay told PTI on Saturday. “The service will not be available from Monday.”

State-run telecom firm BSNL has decided to discontinue telegrams following a huge shortfall in revenue. The service generated about Rs. 75 lakh annually, compared with the cost of over Rs. 100 crore to run and manage it.
