As mentioned, BSNL is likely testing waters to take on the competition with this offer. The Rs 168 STV comes just days after BSNL launched its Abhinandan 151 prepaid recharge plan. The BSNL Abhinandan 151 prepaid recharge offer users get 180-day validity. The offer also provides unlimited local and STD calling without and FUP with 100 SMS messages per day.
Moving beyond the internet benefits, the BSNL Abhinandan 151 plan also comes with 1GB data per day. All of this sounds good but the prepaid plan comes with a catch. According to the catch, the unlimited calling, data, and SMS benefits are only available for 24 days. Beyond that, the plan allows users to get incoming calls for the total 180 day period of validity.
