BSNL’s DataMail subscribers can use linguistic email address service offered by BSNL and Data XGen jointly on DataMail app.
“BSNL has led the new initiatives in India and offering 100GB storage space is another historical moment for the country,” said Ajay Data, founder and CEO of Data XGen Technologies.
BSNL launched free e-mail address service in 8 Indian languages for its broadband users on 21 December 2016. BSNL broadband users are empowered to open an email ID in DataMail app in their own languages.
