Do note, that the maximum cashback that can be claimed is Rs 50, which means, it would be valid only on a prepaid recharge plan that is less than Rs 250.

Now that you know what comes with the offer, here’s how you can claim it. First of all, you would need the PhonePe app on your device.

According to the recharge plan you want (and in this case the amount of cashback you want to opt for), select or enter the plan amount from the view plans section. Do note, once the BSNL recharge is processed, it cannot be canceled or returned, said PhonePe.
Here, pick your payment option for the same, and you are through. You will receive the cashback amount in your PhonePe wallet immediately. “The cashback credited to a user cannot be withdrawn to any linked bank account or transferred to other users,” PhonePe clarifies. Also, for a customer whose PhonePe wallet limit for the month has been reached, which is Rs 10,000, the cashback will be credited on the first business day of the next month.
