BSNL, the state-owned telecom service provider, has been introducing a number of tariff plans to combat Reliance Jio and other incumbents in the segment. It has now launched a new recharge offer of Rs 39 that gives unlimited voice call benefit to its prepaid subscribers.
The Rs 39 tariff plan will give users unlimited local and STD calls pan-India as well as roaming calls in all circles, excluding Delhi and Mumbai. Like the Rs 99 and Rs 319 tariff plan, the new Rs 39 prepaid plan from BSNL is also an unlimited calling plan and does not offer any bundled data subscription. The Rs 39 prepaid pack comes with a validity of 10 days.
With the recharge of Rs 39, BSNL customers will also get access to company’s Personalized Ring Back Tone (PRBT) servcie for free. BSNL users also get 100SMSes per day with recharge of Rs 39. The plan also does not come with any Fair Usage Policy (FUP), which means there is no daily or weekly limit and users can make unlimited calls.
However, if you are a BSNL customer and want data benefits in addition to the unlimited calling functionality offered with Rs 39 plan then you should recharge with company’s STV-118 plan instead. Under BSNL’s Rs 118 offer, users get unlimited voice calls along with 1GB data. It includes benefits like unlimited local as well as STD voice calls in the home LSA (licensee service area) as well as unlimited roaming except in Delhi and Mumbai. The Rs 118 prepaid tariff plan also includes free PRBT and the prepaid recharge offer is available on pan-India basis with a validity of 28 days.
“We are committed to provide affordable and efficient services to our customers. This special tariff voucher is combo STV and gives unlimited calling for BSNL network to those customers who are using limited data. Details in this regard may be seen at our website,” said RK Mittal, Director (CM), BSNL Board in a press statement.
