Nepal Telecom ,a government owned telecom company is going to increase the validity period of prepaid recharge cards. The decision is going to be in action soon. There were many complaints from the customers regarding the validity as they had to extend the validity period by topping up the balance even if they got unused balance in their mobile.

And the validity period of 200 Rs, 500 Rs and 1000 Rs (Current: 2 months, 6 months and 1 year) will be increased to 5 months, 1 year and 2 year respectively.
