Kathmandu: Ncell Axiata Limited has revised international call rates to 19 countries effective from last Friday. The new rates are in line with the tariffs approved to other operators by the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA).

On May 23, NTA approved call rates of Ncell for 19 countries—Italy, Malta, Germany, Tajikistan, Jordan, Thailand, Latvia, Lebanon, Slovenia, Maldives, Belgium, Estonia, Croatia, Finland, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Syrian Arab Republic, Lithuania, and Cyprus—as per the decision of its Board dated May 14, 2021.

This approval equalizes Ncell’s call charges on par with the minimum rate already being charged by other operators in Nepal as per the approval of NTA.

With the new changes in the tariff, it now costs Rs 30 per minute for making calls to 18 destinations of the list countries, while the call rate to the Maldives per minute has been set at Rs 30.65 excluding applicable taxes.

Earlier, the call charge for these countries was in the range of Rs 4.99 to Rs 15 per minute, depending upon the destinations. The revised rate for the Maldives is still far lower than the rates currently being charged by other operators.
