Wondering how to buy / get a 1800 toll-free number in India?

If you are in US or Canada than it’s a matter of minutes to purchase a toll-free number and get it activated with IVR & call forwarding but that’s not the case in India.

The procedure of getting a toll free number in India involves multiple steps like:

1. Get a landline or mobile phone from a company, which has strongest signal and best services in your area. (Total Duration: 2 days to 15 days)

2. Check whether they have Toll-free services or not through enterprise support or sales team. Even if it is available will they allow incoming from all service provider or it is just limited to their customers like BSNL and MTNL. (Duration: 1 day to 1 month)

3. Get the billing plan, which starts from Rs 3000 and goes up to 15,000 per month depending upon the service providers.

4. If, you want to handle multiple calls at a time on your Toll-free get a PRI connection. (Duration: 15 days to 1 month)

5. Do you want to carry a professional image of your company? Then get an IVR system (Cost: Rs 1 lakh to 5 lakhs, Duration: 2 days to 1 month).

So, in just 4 months you will be ready with your own tollfree 1800 number. Congrats!! But is that worth the time and money in comparison to U.S. where it can be started in minutes and under Rs 1000/- per month? Not at all!!

Why Toll Free 1800 number is better than Click to Call service

Now a days every second webmaster uses a Click-to-Call button on their website, which allows their customers or site users to connect with them free of cost i.e. Toll free but there are some draw backs in it over a traditional and more robust Toll free 1800 number like:

  1. Leads could be missed as the call is initiated after few seconds of submitting the Click to Call form and by that time user could get some other call or change their mood.
  2. Successful connection between the two parties is also not very much possible or reliable every time.
  3. What if customer is on call but the other end i.e. executive or support agent is not responding?
  4. Click-to-Call has very limited audience i.e. who are using Internet and can understand such a concept.
  5. Business are paying two call costs at a time i.e. one to the customer & second to the official end, which makes a minute call cost to Rs 2.4 per minute at least.

On the other hand:

  1. 1800 toll free number is a very useful brand creation tool. Merging this to an IVR system gives you a 24×7 receptionist for your business.
  2. Even a child can call on a 1800 number as it is as simple as dialing any other telephone number.
  3. You can transfer an incoming call on any number in the world, which allows you to display a big company image.
  4. You will be paying a flat price of Rs 2.2 per minute.
