In a surprise gesture, the government has announced that phone calls will be free on Sunday evenings.
The Communications Minister, Ahmet Kasif, announced this initiative in a press statement given earlier today.
The free phone calls will apply, however, only to main line phones. They will cover all evening calls from 7pm to 7am and also all day Sunday.
The free tariff will apply from December 1st 2013.
Mr Kasif hopes that this will encourage more use of phones and says that other projects will follow.
