After recently revising its Rs 155 and Rs 198 prepaid plans, and introducing a Rs 171 plan with 60GB data, BSNL has now launched a plan priced at Rs 75. This new plan, aimed to take on the likes of Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel, offers truly unlimited calling and other benefits.
Unlike most competitors, the Rs 75 plan with unlimited calling does not have any FUP limits. However, the free calling is not valid when users call to mobile numbers in Mumbai and Delhi circles. The plan has a validity of 15 days.
BSNL users also get 10GB 3G data, without any daily restrictions, and 500 free SMSes through the validity period. Now, one of the interesting things about this plan is the ‘validity extension’ option where users can recharge with popular STVs and extend the plan validity by up to 6 months (180 days).
As TelecomTalk explains, the validity extension will only be given on eligible STV recharges, and not on recharges made via self-care, web self-care or USSD. If a user recharges with an amount between Rs 98 and Rs 199, the validity will be extended by 90 days. And for recharge values above Rs 200, the plan validity will be extended by 180 days.
The eligible recharges for 90 days extension include Rs 98, Rs 99, Rs 118, Rs 139, Rs 187 and Rs 198 STVs. Similarly, for 180 days extension, users will have to refill with Rs 319, Rs 333, Rs 339, Rs 349, Rs 395, Rs 444, Rs 447 or Rs 551 STVs. Lastly, it is important to note that the plan is only available in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle.
