BSNL jumps into data and validity revision game, update its prepaid plans

Here’s everything you need to know about BSNL’s new Happy Offer

In other circles, Airtel is offering the same Rs 59 plan as part of its Prepaid Promise scheme, but the benefits differ by a huge margin.

"Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has introduced BSNL Happy Offer for prepaid mobile customers - 43 per cent extra validity and 50 per cent additional data with unlimited local, STD and roaming calls for prepaid mobile customers", the company said in a statement. In contrast, Rs. 398 pack offers benefits such as 1.5GB high speed 4G data per day (post which unlimited access is at 64Kbps), truly unlimited voice calls on all networks in India, 100 SMSes per day, and complimentary subscription to Jio apps. For those looking for something heavier, BSNL has a Rs 485 plan which dishes out 1.5GB of data every day for 90 days. The plan is valid for 28 days. It has now taken the place of the more expensive Rs. 448 pack that offers a validity of 82 days, instead of the older 70 days. Both the plans offer 1GB per day data for the validity period.
