I had applied for it as soon as it was launched - I registered five
times through the net and phone, but to no avail.  The BSNL call
centre people now ask you to rather do a paper application, because
they know that other modes will not be followed up. Finally, I had to
submit a paper application, and do some hard follow-up with the local
exchange, after which they did the connection (post feasibility-study)
pretty quickly.  You still have to improvise and jump through some
hoops to get the connection, though.

So, I used the new connection for about a month, and then got
transferred to Mumbai.  I will now try for an MTNL connection.

The moral of the story is: you can't win, you can't break even, you
cannot even quit the game.
