At Rs.1,499, BSNL launched a new Prepaid Plan. The plan is valid as from September 1 according to the circular of BSNL Chennai. 24 GB of mobile data comes with the Rs.1,499 package. It provides free, 250-minute FUP voice calls and 100 free SMS a day. If you exceed the regular limit, you will be charged by BSNL for the base plan. The base plan is ‘Advance per minute plan 94’ in this situation.
The strategy is 365 days in practise. However, as a promotional deal to those who register within the first 90 days, BSNL provides an extra 30 days of validity. In sum, if you renew within 3 months from now you will get 395 days of validity.
You can enable the plan through C-TOPUP, Selfcare and Web portal if you are interested. The SMS keyword is ‘Project BSNL1499’ for self-care activation and you can give it to ‘123’.
In the same circular, BSNL declared that scheme voucher 429 has been removed and that special tariff voucher 429 has been reintroduced. STV 429 makes 250 minutes of phone calls a day. It also comes with 100 free SMS a day and provides an overwhelming 1 GB of data per day which will decrease the speed to 40kbps. The scheme is 81 days in place.
