State-owned telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has consistently been adding new plans and upgrading its old ones to offer better services to its customers. Today, the telecom operator has added another recharge plan to its portfolio, that offers bundled data and voice at varying prices. It also provides short-term plans for foreigners and other users who don’t use the network much. The new offering is a BSNL International roaming plan and it has been added to the special recharge range of the company. The plan is priced at Rs 168 and it can be used by those who wish to activate international roaming services on their phone number. The recharge plan can also be used to extend the validity of international roaming.
BSNL’s new Rs 168 recharge plan is currently only available to the subscribers of the Kerala circle. However, the company hasn’t specified the availability date of the recharge plan in circles outside Kerala. It should be noted that the Rs 168 recharge plan is valid only till September 9, 2019. The new offering by the company is a promotional plan and after September 9, 2019, it might not be available to the subscribers in any circle.
Talking more about the Rs 168 plan, it will only allow the users to activate the international roaming services on the recharge number. It can also be used to extend the validity of the international roaming services for up to 90 days. Other than roaming plans, it also offers no calling benefits, mobile data or SMS plans. So, in other words, it is a pure international roaming pack and it doesn’t offer any benefits other than international roaming services or extending these services.
Furthermore, last week, BSNL had introduced a new prepaid plan for all its customers in all the circles. The company launched a Rs 151 prepaid plan which was called the ‘Abhinandan-151’ and it offers unlimited calls, 1GB of data every day along with 100 SMS per day to the users. The validity of the new Rs 151 plan is of 180 days, but the benefits would end after 24 days. As mentioned above, the new Abhinandan-151 is not just limited to one or two cities as it is active and available to all the circles on a pan India basis.
