    Dear Sir / Madam,

    My name is Sarita. I work in a Hong Kong based telecom Company, ASIA TELECOM COMPANY. Our company has received license in Singapore too and is about to launch our service there too. But I need some informations first. Can you pls help me?
    1) What is the population of Nepalese in Singapore?
    2) What do Nepalese in Singapore use, to call to Nepal and overseas?
    3) In what status do Nepalese live there? Is it only in the singpore police or family too?

    I would really appreciate your reply.

    Yours sincerely,
    Ms Sarita Gurung
    Business Development Executive
    Asia Telecom Limited

    Hi Sarta,

    1) Number of nepalese in singapore I do not know but most of them are in police force or working in the service industry like restaurants or pubs or businessman.

    2)If you come to this website you see that someone actually recommend a card called mandu card to call nepal. Is about 60min talk time for mobile and 120 min talk time for fixed line at a price of $8.50. This card uses connection via nepal line. IS terrible connection in the evening and not so clear. But if you try in the morning and afternoon is still ok.
    The problem may be nepal telephone network.If you can have a card that is more clear and at a lower price I am sure you can get nepalese to use your card. I hope the boss of mandu card is ready for the competition. Competition is beneficial for the consumers. From the other point of view if you can offer a better deal the nepalese who work very hard here get to call their homes more often. Afterall many leave home to provide for their families so you can help them to stay in touch with their family. There are not many cards that are available to call nepal. Currently I think two cards are available which is mandu card and Ace plus …ME as a consumer welcome you into the market …The customer service line is also important. Give a good service for customer service line I am sure you can get a lot of customers

    Hi Sarita jee,

    Good to hear that you are planning to operate calling cards in Singapore to call Nepal.

    Below are the answers to your questions:
    1) & 3) The population of Nepalese in Singapore is approx 9,000 to 10,000 out of which half of them are Gurkha police and their family. Rest are Employee, Business mens and students.
    2) Most Nepalese here use Mandu calling card to call Nepal. The card value is SGD 10 but in the market this card is available for SGD 8 to SGD 8.50 and it gives 90 minutes to call Mobile and outside Kathmandu valley where as for Kathmandu land lines it is approx 120 minutes. Besides that there are some other cards to call Nepal but with low minutes.

    So if you can offer better rates and longer talk time with voice clarity your business will click in the Singapore market.

    All the best !!

    Thankyou Nepaliheart and Prashantjee. But informations from two of u about Mandu card differ.

  5. nepalihearton 22 Jan 2009 at 12:13 pm

    Hi Sarita,

    I thought it was 60 when I used it …unless I remembered wrongly but the key point here is for you to come up with something better deal so that the people will buy them and use it. What Prashantjee has told you are the nepalese in singapore who need it…You can also capture the singaporeans who call nepal ….I am a singaporean not a nepali and I have to call nepal frequently for discussion and business talks …I am looking for quality line at reasonable cost if possible.

    sure, thanks……….. and thats exactly what we are targeting into…….

    I want more information. What is the monthly average expense for calling overseas from singapore, not exact figure, just a round-off guess? And also I would like to know if there’s anyone who can help me to get in cotact with thru whom I can reach the Gurkhas inside the cantonment.
