    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.
    Sarita

  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.

  6. saritaon 23 Jan 2009 at 11:59 pm

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

  7. saritaon 11 Feb 2009 at 10:49 pm

    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.

    Hello There:
    This is Bishal Shrestha, marketing manager of Aakarshan–a new emerging Nepali artist. We are trying to promote AaKarshan and his upcoming debut album, “Shabdaharu,” which we are planning to release very soon in Boulder, CO, USA. So, I just wanted to share the news with you and wanted to introduce Aakarshan to you guys if you have not heard of him before. We would really appreciate your help in promoting Aakarshan and his upcoming album, “Shabdaharu”and would love to establish a symbiotic relationship with your organization.

    Two of his songs from the album have already been uploaded and are running on youtube.com–they are worth checking out. We just uploaded the promotional video of the album too. It is not a typical promo that we see in our industry; rather it is long and gives a fairly good idea of all the songs from the album. The concept behind this is to make buyers aware of what they are getting.

    Links to his youtube channel:

    I happened to discover your website and got the sense that your website has the propensity to promote a new and deserving artist.

    Please visit www.aakarshan.com.np which will be fully running after few weeks. We would love to share more information.
    Thanks for your time. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Hi Sarita,

    May I know what is the name of this postpaid card/ service.
    How much it cost, whats the talk time and how long is the value valid for after top up.

    Thanks & Regards

  15. saritaon 13 May 2009 at 10:23 am

    Ming,
    It isn’t a top up or card. It is just a idd service. all you need to give us is your full name, singapore id number, your address in singapore and your phone number to be registered. Then, we will activate the service from the same day. for the first time, we will not charge you for the 20mins which is only for the trial. if you like the service, then you can actually register with us. then, we will send the membership card and the letter to your address. then, just call overseas from your registered phone and we can send the bill thru sms to your mobile, then you can pay at any 7-11 convenient store with your membership card. and that’s it.
    if you have any more queries, you can email me at sarita@asiatel.com.hk or call us at our CS hotline 6577-2550.
    thanks & regards

    HI Sir/Mam
    I am a Nepali doctor who graduated from one of the best medical colleges in India. At present I am working in a rural mission hospital in eastern Nepal. I am told that i will be offerred a job in singapore and that i will get an opportunity for higher studies. Will you please tell me about the normal procedure for a Nepali citizen to apply for visa to Singapore ?
    I tried searching on the net but couldnt find it. Does Singapor have an embassy in Nepal?
    If there is an agent in Nepal which can be of help, it would be just great.. is there a Nepali doctors forum there by any chance?
    Thanking in advance
