BSNL has launched a new recharge plan positioned towards foreigners or those looking to buy a short-term mobile connection. With a price tag of Rs. 389, the prepaid plan comes packed with voice, data and 100 SMS per day advantages with a one-month validity. But, this new plan at the moment is available only for Chennai and Tamil Nadu telecom circles. However, this new plan does not facilitate service migration.
The Rs 389 plan offers unlimited calling with a 30-day validity. BSNL’s standard ‘Per Minute Plan’ will be considered as standard for charging roaming calls. The unlimited calling will be capped by a 1 GB of daily high-speed data. Upon reaching this limit, the data speed will be reduced to 40 kbps with no restrictions on future use.
As a result of the Jio effect and in a bid to stay buoyant amidst rising competition, BSNL has revised the Rs 47 and Rs 198 prepaid recharges in May, 2019 so as to give more benefits to subscribers.
