BSNL stood at first to launch first internet telephony service in the country that will allow users to dial any telephone number in India through its mobile app. 

BSNL customers will be able to make calls 
using the company's mobile app "Wings" to any phone number in the country. Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha said "In the present competitive environment, increase in market share by BSNL is laudable. I congratulate BSNL management for internet telephony which will enable consumers to make call without SIM,"

BSNL customers will be able to make calls on any network in the country even by using BSNL wi-fi or any other service provider. Telecom Commission, highest-decision making body of the Department of Telecom, had allowed companies who hold valid telecom licence, to provide app-based calling service even by using wi-fi connection.

Registration for the service will begin this week and the services will be activated July 25 onwards.
