Skype users in India can make free calls to the US and Canada until March 2015

If you’re a Skype user in India and need to make some holiday calls over to the western hemisphere, you may be in luck. Skype today announced it is allowing its users located in India to make free calls to the US and Canada.

Users can call either landline or mobile phones and don’t need to go through any special set-up process other than having a Skype account.

The offer is valid until 00:01 Indian Standard Time on March 1, so you’ll have a few months to make all the free phone calls you want.
