Why do you want to surrender the connection? BSNL might have forgotten that your family was a customer. Why would you want to remind them that you were a customer?

Why do anything about it? Is it unsightly or somehow in the way?

Probably, but really you should not. If the box is on your premises, open it and pull the wire out.

Our BSNL line fell down years ago. For some reason my wife does not want to close the account. I guess she remembers the days when it could take years to even get a BSNL phone, to which there was no alternative. I pay their bill occasionally.


On second thoughts, ok... cut the wire. But have some respect for the equipment at the exchange end: strip it and cut each wire separately, and then tape up the ends, away from each other. Wear rubber shoes: you can get a small shock from telephone wires. Yes, I do know this from experience!

Somewhere there will be a deposit receipt for the connection. Surely no-one will have thrown it away - you are entitled to the money back!

Good grief, I would not be able to find mine, even I had not been through a flood. Nor would I be able to find the instrument originally given with the connection.

in my experience most local exchanges have mounds of old failed equipment heaped up - i"m not suggesting anyone should pinch anything, but they must be there for a reason - slip the guy double-half chai-panni!
