NTC honors the frontline health professionals with free calls, in its new offer ”Thank You Healthcare Worker”
"Nepal Telecom (NTC) brings “Thank You Healthcare Worker Offer” in appreciation of the health professionals for their relentless service in the ongoing COVID-19 crisis."
Nepal Telecom (NTC) brings “Thank You Healthcare Worker Offer” in appreciation of the health professionals for their relentless service in the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The health care workers including doctors, nurses will get one month of free unlimited calls.
Nepal Telecom (NTC) hopes that the offer will keep the frontline doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other health professionals motivated in their humble duties. The state-owned telecom is paying its own homage to the medical professionals who have committed themselves round the clock. The company signed the agreement with the representatives from Nepal Medical Council, Nepal Nursing Council, Nepal Pharmacy Council, Nepal Health Professionals Council, Nepal Ayurvedic Medical Council. Nepal Medical Council already announced the same free call offer for the doctors registered under them.
The offer will allow health professionals free voice calls for a month within its network and is applicable on both prepaid and postpaid plans. However, the rental charge on postpaid SIM will remain intact.
Health professionals will acquire this offer after their concerned councils (Nepal Doctors Council/ Nepal Nursing Council/ Nepal Pharmacy Council/ Nepal Health Professionals Council and Nepal Ayurvedic Medical Council) provide their names and contacts on their official application with the letterhead.
The service will be available only to the professionals who have SIM on their own names. However, NTC has provisioned that health professionals could submit an application with their council’s official letter pad to receive a dedicated SIM card.
Similarly, health professionals can choose to obtain a SIM through their council’s ID card. This will require a regular form fill-up. They can submit the document to the nearest NTC counter and get an NTC SIM card immediately. The offer will activate by default.
The offer comes as part of NTC’s Corporate Social Responsibility. The offer can also see an extension if the crisis sustains further. The need for communication has become most significant during such crises. Understandably, the frequency and the length of calls can never be as high as now. Therefore, it is a praiseworthy gesture by NTC to facilitate the health workers’ need for connectivity.
