BSNL, which has maintained an aggressive stance to retain market share since Reliance Jio started operations, has launched a new 'Rakhi pe Saugaat' plan for prepaid users. The state-owned telecom operator is offering with this plan unlimited on-net calls, and bundled talk value and talk time at Rs. 74. As this BSNL plan has been launched to celebrate the festival of Rakhi, it comes with short-term validity of five days. This offer can be availed starting August 3, and will go on for 12 days.
With the new recharge pack, BSNL users can make unlimited on-net voice calls for the five-day period. Furthermore, they will also get 1GB of data benefits for those five days, with a talk value of Rs. 74 as well.
"Maintaining its tradition BSNL is offering such cheapest tariffs on festivities," R.K.Mittal, Director (CM) BSNL Board said in a statement. Additionally, few combo offers worth Rs. 189, Rs. 289, and Rs. 389 have also been launched, and it offers 18 percent extra talk value and 1GB of free data.
BSNL recently also launched the 'Sixer 666' pack for prepaid subscribers with 120GB data. Under the plan, BSNL prepaid users got data in allowances of 2GB per day and the plan had a validity of 60 days.
Also, BSNL recently announced a data-focused plan for its postpaid subscribers as well, in an attempt to counter Reliance Jio. Under the new offer, BSNL postpaid customers get additional data benefits on their existing plans. BSNL customers who were enrolled under Plan 99 will now get 250MB of data compared to zero data benefit previously. Similarly, those with Plan 225 now get 1GB data compared to 200MB, and Plan 325 will offer 2GB of data compared to just 250MB data. Users enrolled under Plan 525 and 725 will now get 3GB (earlier 500MB) and 5GB data (earlier 1GB).
