Note: Please refer to your mobile phone manual for details on how to make and receive calls.

How "Namaste" works

As you make a call using "Namaste", the cost of the call is automatically deducted from your account. This deduction includes the rate of call with all the taxes involved.
To replenish your "Namaste" account, all you have to do is call 1414 and recharge your account by using a recharge card.

States Of "Namaste" Subscriber

  1. IDLE When Pre-Paid SIM card is purchased, it is in this state until it makes one call. In this state, the subscriber is not registered to the system and hence can not make or receive any call.

  2. ACTIVE When a first call is made from a Pre-Paid SIM card, its state changes from Idle to Active. In the beginning, Rs. 100 is automatically added to its account and the validity period of 1 month is given. This is the working state of subscriber. The subscriber will remain Active as long as its account is recharged regularly.

  3. SUSPEND When the Active period of Pre-paid subscriber is finished, it goes into Suspend state. In this state, no voice call can be made or received even if there is remaining balance amount in the account. The subscriber can dial only the management number (1414 ) for recharge and balance query but can receive Short Messages. This period is 15 days and if subscriber recharges its account, the state is changed to Active and the remaining balance is also transferred.

  4. DISABLE When subscriber fails to recharge its account within Suspend period, its state is changed to Disable. Then pre-paid subscriber�s account balance will be reset to ZERO and can not make or receive any call except 1414 for recharge. This period is 30 days. The pre-paid account has to be recharged within this period if subscriber wants to retain the account (MSISDN). After this period, the number is permanently deleted from the system.

Account balance query:

"Namaste" subscribers can check their account balance by themselves. To check the account balance:
  • Dial 1414 and listen.
  • Press 2 and listen. Then press 1 again for account balance query.
  • Each time you recharge your account, the system will inform you of your new account balance and expiry date.
  • OR Dial *400#.

Note: You will receive SMS reminder for recharging your account when your account balance becomes less than Rs.50. When your balance will be less than Rs.25, you will again be reminded through SMS. If you choose not to recharge your account now, then every time you try to make a call, you will hear reminder for recharging before the call setup. You can continue to use your phone until your account balance becomes zero. A reminder tone (beep tone) will be heard when you have 15 seconds of call time remaining.

Recharge Cards

Recharge cards are available in five denominations of RS. 50, Rs. 100, Rs. 200, Rs.500 and Rs.1000. The costs of these cards are Rs.50, Rs. 100, Rs. 200, Rs.500 and Rs.1000 respectively. click here to view the recharge card validity

Recharge cards contain 13 and 14 digits PIN which is covered with Black Ink for security. You have to use this PIN for recharging your account. Please do not purchase the card, if the ink is tampered

How to recharge your account?

  • Gently scratch the masking off the back of your recharge card to reveal 13 digits PIN.
  • Dial 1414 from your own Pre-Paid mobile phone and listen.
  • Press 1 and listen.
  • When system ask to enter the PIN number of the recharge card, enter all the 13 digits of your recharge card PIN correctly and listen. You do not have to press any other key or number after PIN entry. After the successful recharge, you will be informed of your new account balance and validity period.
  • Alternately, customer can recharge by dialing *411* thirteen digit pins# and press call key

Things to be remembered while recharging your account

  1. Always remember to use your own mobile phone (with your own Pre-Paid SIM card) for Recharge.

  2. Do not pause for more than 2 seconds (approximately) while entering the digits of PIN number. If paused longer, system will stop taking your entry and consider the PIN number as invalid.

  3. Your recharge card can be used only once to recharge an account. If you try to enter the PIN numbers of the used recharge card or incorrect PIN numbers, your attempts will be failed and account will not be updated. If such attempts are made carelessly, your account (mobile number) will be BLACKLISTED. After that, you will not be able to make or receive any call. Thus, you should be careful while entering the PIN of recharge card. Listen carefully to the instructions given while recharging.

  4. Pre-paid account can accumulate maximum balance of Rs. 5000 only. Further recharge of the account is not allowed till the account balance less than or equal to the face value of the recharge card is used up i.e. If the face value is Rs 500, then until the balance becomes less than or equal to Rs 4500, you can not recharge. Also the maximum Active day that a pre-paid account can accumulate is 730 days. For instance, if an account with Active days 720 and rechargeable balance (e.g. Rs.3500) recharge by using recharge card with face value Rs.500, the amount equals to face value of the card will be added(i.e. new balance will be Rs.4000) but only 10 days will be added to Active days of 720 instead of 6 months.

PIN1/PUK1 and PIN2/PUK2 numbers:

These are special numbers provided to you with your welcome package at the time of purchase of new SIM card. Please keep them safe for use when required.

If you make wrong entry of PIN 3 times, your SIM will be locked and will ask you for PUK number. Take great care while entering PUK because, if PUK entry is wrong for 10 times, the SIM card will be damaged permanently.

Security Code:

This code is the Identification of Pre-Paid mobile subscriber. This is also provided with your welcome package at the time of purchase of new SIM card. If your mobile is lost, we advise you to Block your account so that others can not misuse it. For that, dial 1498 and ask to block your Pre-paid account by giving your security code. In case, you find your mobile again, you can un-Block your account by giving the same security code.

Since the Welcome Letter given at the time of purchase of new SIM card contains the above vital information like PIN, PUK and security code, we advise you to keep it safely.

Nepal Telecom starts selling Namaste GSM and Sky CDMA sim cards from private counters, Nepal Sim Cards battle Starts...

Neapl Telecom, Government won company starts selling Sim Cards form outsourced private companies from 8th May. This is a move to ensure easy availability of mobile connections to prospective customers. In another option outsourced private firms will also sell mobile handsets bundled with the SIM.

Ncell- the private telco has been selling GSM SIM in such an easy way from many years, which is the major reason behind the huge no.of Ncell sim card distribution, Now Nepal Telecom is also in the battle field to start the sensation.

Previously NT used to distribute SIM cards only from their office during office hours which was not that convenient for the prospective customers. Now with this move, NT Sim cards will be available from private counters in different areas of Kathmandu, which is a major step in removing the hassles for a customer and having broad availability of the SIM in holidays and odd hours.  In the first step, some recharge card dealers are asked to do the SIM distribution with their own counters in different parts of the city, which will be also be provided later to MPOS dealers and handset bundling firms. Such distribution will also be done in other parts of the country after Kathmandu.

This is the first time the state company is all set to seek support of private companies to sell mobile lines. Two months ago, NT outsourced two firms to sell its WiMax broadband internet service. It has also outsourced its enquiry service and mobile tower maintenance, but in a small scale.
