Airtel launches voice based portal for value added services

New Delhi: Bharti Airtel Monday launched a voice-based solution portal for value added services that will provide information in local language on activities such as agriculture, devotion, job updates, entertainment, education and health.

‘Apna Chaupal’, designed for rural and semi-urban market, will enable mobile customers across the country to browse and subscribe value added services by dialling toll free number 58080, the company said in a statement.

“…We are happy to launch the Apna Chaupal service for our customers who can now easily avail all the relevant value added services from a single portal at 58080 without having to memorise the individual dialling numbers of each of the service,” Bharti Airtel CEO (Delhi/NCR) Rohit Gothi said.

The service will enable customers to access services like learning agricultural techniques, receive instant updates on ‘mandi’ rates and government jobs, access entertainment services like hello tunes, on their mobile phones with a voice call.
