After making monthly prepaid recharge plans mandatory, telecom operators have also introduced plans with yearly validity. Now, the state-run telco, BSNL, has come up with a half-yearly plan priced at Rs 899, where you get a validity of 180 days. The plan also comes with data, calling and SMS benefits.
The Rs 899 prepaid plan from BSNL offers subscribers with unlimited local and national calling to any operator. The calling benefits is also applicable when you are in roaming, except for Mumbai and Delhi circles, where you get services from MTNL. So, when you are in these cities, you’ll end up paying standard rates for calling.

BSNL also has three yearly plans to choose from.
