Communication has been very important in human life since the earlier days. With the development of the different technology, the means of communication has also been easier and convenient to the people of fall over the world. These days we can talk to our friends and family all over the world. The new technology of today’s includes different means of communication like email, internet, telephone. Mobiles and many other social networking sites and applications like Viber, Skype, WhatsApp, IMO and many more. Many of the android apps work with the help of internet or mobile data. To get either mobile data or internet we need to recharge our mobile network or internet service provider on the regular basis.
In the context of Nepal, we have two large network service providers i.e. NTC and Ncell. NTC is the network provider which is under the government of Nepal and has provided various services to their SIM users. NTC is also considered as one of the leading communication providers of Nepal. There are many people all over Nepal who are the customer of NTC network and depend on it for the communication. Now when we have a SIM card we also need to recharge our mobile phone for the up and running it properly all the time. As the mobile is the means of communication and is used in the emergency cases it should always be loaded with the money so you can use it in the time of need. As we need to recharge the phone we need to know the different means of recharge method so we can use any one of it whenever necessary.
How to recharge NTC
Using recharge card
The very common way of recharging the mobile phone is using the recharge card. Today many people find recharging their mobile phone using recharge card easy way. It seems easy to as we can easily get the recharge card in the market. All we need to do is buy the recharge cards from the market in any shop and recharge it in your mobile. In the market, we get the recharge card of NTC starting from Rs. 50 and goes high. We also get the card of Rs. 100, 500, and 1000. If you are recharging your mobile with the recharge card than you should at least recharge Rs. 50 at a time. To recharge NTC with the recharge card you need to press *412* pin number#. Similarly, you can also recharge by dialing in the 1412 and following the instruction that is provided by the system or one of the customer representatives.
Even though you find this way easy and convenient one there are different problem in this way of recharging your phone. Well the major problem is some number may wipe out while scratching the card so will have problem in recharging it. In the same way it is not sure the recharge card are available in the market wherever we go. In the remote area there may be the shortage of the recharge card at the time of emergencies.
Mobile point of sale (MPOS)
This is the other way of recharging your mobile phone. As it is pin less there is no more hassle likes that of the recharge card. This system of recharging is available with the NTC network. In MPOS system of recharging the mobile we do not have to get the recharge card and scratch it so many people prefer online recharge rather than using recharge card. This MPOS system is not beneficial for the mobile recharge but also used these days for paying our internet bill, electricity bill, water bill and so on.
Online payment from the third party
Online payment from the third party like Esewa, ipay pay bill, hello paisa. We know that everyone who is the customer of Ncell or NTC are expert in using the online payment system on their own. But they also want to use the easy way of recharging their mobile from the place where they are at the moment. Sometimes due to various reason, it is not possible for us to get the recharge card at that moment, in that case, the online top-up system with the third party comes in handy. There are different ways of recharging the mobile using the third party recharge system like Esewa, hello paisa and many more. Using this facility we can get the balance sitting in our home just with one call to the service provider.
We can also add balance in our mobile from mobile apps. Well before we start we need to register with the SMS banking or mobile banking or need to login with it. Once we do register we can also recharge our mobile from the different mobile apps. Before we start we need to follow the following process:
