It doesn’t cost money for teachers and students to call within a user group. “SIMs with data have been distributed for conducting online classes,” said Bhandari. “We have received feedback from teachers who have made it easier to conduct online classes.” Branch Chief Meenadevi Acharya said. According to Nepal Telecom, it costs Rs 129 per cent for one month. It has eight GB of data for free. Calling within a user group does not cost money.
