The new plans will be made available from July 1. The new plans have been set at Rs 228 and Rs 239. The plans offer the users a validity of one month. The state-run telecom company has claimed that the user will have to recharge their number on the same day, every month. These new plans come after TRAI’s order asking telecom companies to offer at least one plan with 30 days of validity.
