Alongside extension for the bumper offer, BSNL has also confirmed that it is adding two annual plans priced at Rs 1,699 and Rs 2,099 to this scheme.

These two new annual plans will help the company battle private players and retain customers already subscribed to its annual plans.

BSNL Bumper Offer: Everything you need to know
To recall, BSNL had earlier introduced the ‘Monsoon Offer’ which was essentially the same offer as the bumper offer. The company had announced that this plan will only be valid till September 14, but the plan was extended to November 14, 2018.
Due to strong response, this offer has been extended until January 31, 2019, which means BSNL users will be able to reap benefits until the end of January next year. One of the big changes is that customers will get total of 2.1GB additional data and not 2.2GB data offered previously with the plan.
