Indian state-owned telecom company Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd. (BNSL) has introduced three new promotional plans for its subscribers: Rs 259, Rs 379, and Rs 548. All the plans mentioned above differ from each other when in terms of benefits and the period of validity. It is worth noting that these plans are limited to users located in Gujarat and Punjab circles, so only BSNL users residing in those regions can avail these plans.
Starting off with the Rs 258 plan, customers will get talktime worth Rs 220 in addition to 110 free on-net (BSNL to BSNL) voice calls. This offer is valid up to 30 days from the day of recharge. The Rs 379 plan, on the other hand, is valid up to 30 days and offers 4GB of 3G data per day. The speed, however, will be reduced to 80kbps after hitting the FUP. Customers can make unlimited on-net calls and 30 minutes of off-net (BSNL to any network calls) per day. Lastly, Rs 548 plan comes with 90 days validity wherein users will be offered 5GB of 3G data per day. The speed will be reduced to 80kbps upon exceeding the daily limit.
Interestingly, the benefits of these plans also differ from each circle in addition to their prices. For example, Rs 259 plan costs Rs 259 in Punjab but Rs 258 in Gujarat. Similarly, Rs 379 plan costs Rs 378 for users in Gujarat. Surprisingly, Rs 548 plan offers only 4GB of 3G per day to users in Punjab unlike 5GB in Gujarat. The validity remains the same for across both the circles, though.
In another news, Airtel’s data rollover plan has been live for all postpaid users. So customers can now make use of their unused data from the previous billing cycle. Last week, Aditya Birla Group-owned Idea Cellular announced its plans to partner OEMs to bring an affordable smartphone to compete with recently announced Reliance JioPhone.
