There’s more to do. BSNL in a long list of requirements shared on Twitter said that just porting their numbers will not make subscribers eligible to get these benefits.

New subscribers will also have to share a screenshot of their tweet or post explaining their reason to switch to BSNL with the telecom service provider over a Direct Message on Twitter or on the company’s Whatsapp number – 9457086024 – with the respective mobile numbers.
“ It is compulsory to share/retweet all related BSNL’s post related to this campaign on your timeline with #SwitchToBSNL,” the company wrote in terms and conditions for getting the mentioned benefits. This means that if the new subscribers fail to meet any of these requirements, the company can choose not to extend them these benefits.

This plan offers a total of 3GB of data along and it comes with a validity of 75 days. It also offers 100 free domestic minutes to all networks, national roaming in Delhi and Mumbai and 60 days of default tunes.
