CHAPTER-5 DISCUSSION This report is definitely beneficial for us because through this research we have got – 1. We have learnt many more things about the BSNL 3G company. .
We also know about customer’s problems and their suggestions. Finally we can say that satisfaction level of the customers for the BSNL 3G company is positively high (90%). . Some customers is very loyal for BSNL 3G cellular services because they are using BSNL 3G cellular services from long time. the awareness about the facilities provided to the customers is very low. 6. The company should try to position it as a necessity.2. 5. We found some problems for collecting secondary data. Some customers were not interested for giving the information about the BSNL 3G Services because they had time constraint.At present most people perceive mobile telephone as an item for emergency. we got many queries from customers side. 2. RECOMMENDATION 1. 4.The cellular companies should adopt for high advertisement of its services. 3.
It is a market where large number of people are aware of different facilities and features offered and different technology used by different brands. 6. 10Information about the product and the schemes should be distributed on a wider scale and follow up conducted regularly.Cash counters should be setup at major places in the city to facilitated timely payment of bills.The company should try to lower down the call rates.There is great amount of market potential.Cellular services provide a wide range of features.It is proposed to provide itemized bills free of cost to the subscribers once every six months. which the company should tap immediately. 5. This bill help to boost the confidence of the subscribers in the service providers. 9. 4. These must be made known to them through heavy publicity.This perception should be change by advertising that cellular provide high quality services.Majority of the customers feel that the rates of services are high .3. 7. 8.Different promotional schemes should be followed by the companies. . CONCLUSION 3G market is currently booming in India. which the subscribers are not aware of its services.
‘If you don’t care for your customers. As the saying goes. that the customer satisfaction assumes great significance. IMPLICATION This report will be implicated to improve company’s services for their customers. The charges for the services offered being more or less the same. Company can easily find customers needs and wants through this research (Report). somebody else will’ Today the companies are intent on building stronger bonds with their customers and more stress is being laid on retaining the customers rather than acquiring the new ones. It is in this regard that customer satisfaction is considered the top most priority. the competition lies in providing better services to the subscribers. .It is due to this era of competition and low awareness.
LIMITATION OF THE STUDY .And this report definitely will be in the favor of company and their customer. Company will provide different offers to their customer after getting the suggestion from customer side.
SCOPE FOR FUTURE WORK This project brings into focus the satisfaction level of customers of BSNL 3G cellular services. 3.The result would be based on the answer obtained from 85 respondents only because of time constraint.Generally the respondents were busy in their work and were not interested in responding rightly.Some of the respondents were using the service first time of their company and they were not able to properly differentiate among their product. 2.Most respondents were not maintaining proper knowledge of various services provided by the company. specially when the sample is large and recalls upon respondent are necessary. 6.The method of data collection is an expansive method especially when large and widely spread geographical location is taken. 5. This project is based on the services provided by BSNL . so they were unable to provide exact information 4. which are listed here: 1The method of data collection through questionnaires is relatively more time consuming and slowest of all.Carrying the survey was a general learning experience for us but we also faced some problems.
By asking the subscribers to give suggestions regarding the services offered to them.It will help us to know what customer was feel about the services provided by the BSNL 3G besides giving us an inside into the problems faced by the subscribers it also helps to focus on the various expectations of the customers of BSNL 3G. we able to find new areas of improvement so that various steps can be taken is and when required.
