If you are a BSNL customer, then it may be time for you to check the plan you are on and change it as the service provider has a bunch of new plans that kick into effect today, December 1. In order to take on the competition, BSNL has three plans - Rs 199, Rs 798 and Rs 999. As you can make out from the pricing of the plans, the Rs 199 is aimed at those that don't want to spend a lot and is also aimed at attracting customers that are tied onto competing telecom providers. The Rs 798 plan is for those that need a lot of calling and data and the top tier plan is for those that want the best.
With the introduction of these three plans, BSNL is expected to remove some plans from their portfolio which include the Rs. 99, Rs. 225, Rs. 325, Rs. 799, and Rs. 1,125. If you have one of the removed plans, then according to Telecom Talk, “Existing users on the Rs 99, Rs 225, Rs 325, Rs 799 and Rs 1125 will stay on the same plans until further notice from the company”. However, let’s dive into the details of the new plans and see if they are a lucrative offering.
Kicking things off with the entry-level plan, the Rs 199 postpaid plan brings with it “unlimited on-net voice calling, 300 off-net minutes”. Users also get 100 SMS limit per day. For your data needs the plan has 25GB of data with a maximum rollover of 75GB. If you exhaust the limit, you will be charged Rs 10.24 per GB.
Moving over to the Rs 798 postpaid plan, users get unlimited voice calling to any network and a limit of 100 SMS per day. For data, users get 50GB per month with data rollover up to 150GB.
