It looks like BSNL has removed five plans from their portfolio. These plans were Special Tariff Vouchers (STV) and the plans which have been removed include the Rs 333 plan, Rs 339 plan, Rs 379 plan, Rs 392 and Rs 444 plan. The information about the removal of the plan comes from Telecom Talk. The Rs 333 STV offered unlimited on-network voice calls. It also gave users 3GB data per day. After the FUP the speed fell to 80 Kbps. The plan was also bundled with an EROS Now subscription and sported a 45 days validity. 

The Rs 339 STV plan came with a 26 days validity. It has free STD calls to other networks but with a limit of 30 minutes per day. For data, the plan offered 3GB data daily after which the speed fell to 80kbps. 

The Rs 379 STV offered 4GB data per day along with on-network unlimited calls with 30 minutes per day calling to other networks. The validity of the plan was 30 days. 

The Rs 392 STV offered customers unlimited on-network calls. The data limit was capped at 3GB per day. Customers also got EROS Now subscription and BSNL gaming offer. 

Lastly, the Rs 444 STV gave customers 4GB of data per day. It also offered on-network unlimited calls along with EROS Now subscription for 60 days. 

According to telecom talk, “It is worth noting that the likely reason why BSNL has put an end to these plans is that they were shipping on-network calling benefits. Now although the STVs were offering unlimited calling and impressive data benefits, these days, only 30 minutes of calling to other network doesn’t make sense especially when other providers are shipping these benefits in all their plans. As such, it is possible that BSNL has discontinued these plans due to abysmal customer demand”.

So it looks like BSNL may introduce other plans which will be attractive to customers and offer a higher duration of calling to other networks if not unlimited. Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone, all have new plans and you can check out our comparison of the new plans here.
