The state-run telco, BSNL just launched a Rs 599 Work from Home plan with 5GB data per day and 90 days validity. The new plan offers 250 minutes of calling benefits as well as 100 SMS per day. Now, the telecom operator has introduced two new prepaid plans with data and calling benefits.
These new plans were officially announced by BSNL’s Tamil Nadu arm, after the Vasantham Gold prepaid plan with a denomination of Rs 96 was scrapped. BSNL was previously offering the Vasantham Gold prepaid voucher worth Rs 96 with a validity of 60 days along with calling and SMS benefits.
BSNL launches Plan Advance 94 and Plan Advance 95 with 3GB data
On the Plan Advance 94 and Advance 95 prepaid vouchers, BSNL calculates pulse rate on a per minute and per second basis, respectively. However, other benefits of both plans including data and free calls remain largely identical. Both these plans offer 3GB of high-speed data with no daily cap. Additionally, users get 100 minutes of free voice calls to any network as well as national roaming.
Beyond the free calling minutes, the user will have to pay Rs 1 per minute for local calls and Rs 1.3 per minute if they are on Rs 94 plan. The users of Rs 95 plan will be charged at Rs 0.02 per second for local calls and Rs 0.024 per second for STD calls. As for SMS, BSNL will charge Rs 0.8 per local SMS and Rs 1.2 for national SMS.
Additionally, these plans come with a validity of 90 days and BSNL has announced that users will need to consume the free voice and data benefits within the validity period, as there is no carry over to the next month. The users of Plan Advance 94 and Plan Advance 95 will also get a free caller tune service for 60 days. Notably, BSNL offers caller tunes under its Personalised Ring Back Tone (PRBT) service and charges Rs 30 per month and an additional Rs 12 for song selection.
These plans are being offered in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Jammu and Kashmir, Kerala, Ladakh, Lakshadweep, Telangana and Odisha circles. In Karnataka, the telco is offering only the Rs 95 plan. Users can activate the new plans using a top-up, web portal, self care and SMS.
