The thing I like about pigeonvoip.
you can take Pigeon wherever you travel. To use elsewhere apart from Delhi and Mumbai you need to have a broadband connection and a telephone instrument. Call the support center for further details. So you can have two connections and talk for 800 mins only for 400 Rs. You can place one adaptor in India and one adaptor anywhere in the world.

This could be also made free by purchasing two SIP devices and Puting one in India and one with you. There are many companies which provide free calls among the same SIP subscribers.

The thing I Do not like about pigeonvoip.
No DID number, means you can receive phone calls from any Mobile or landline, you can only receive calls from other pegion subscribers. Moreover Its not free as provided by many companies.

For an India its good offer but not the best, if you have internet at your home you can use betamax services or any other voip service, the call will be either free or you will pay only 40-50 paise per min. There are plenty of services available.

Now you can decide, which one is good.

In future they are planning to start this service for Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, chennai etc and also start providing VoIP Incoming numbers.
