Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched its new prepaid recharge plan of Rs 599 which gives customers unlimited voice calling benefits for 180 days (6 months). The new recharge plan is not a Pan-India plan as it is initially available in select circles only. But it should be noted that the recharge offers only voice calling, and there is no unlimited high-speed data benefit on the recharge of the new plan. The new recharge plan also comes with validity extension benefits which means that the plan will help you extend the validity of your current account by 180 days.
The new recharge plan is available for telecom network subscribers only, with the exception of Mumbai and New Delhi. As the state-owned telecom operator recently had discounted five of its data-only recharge plans in select cities. The recharge plans include Rs 549, Rs 561, Rs 2,798, Rs 3,998, and Rs 4,498.
Also, the new prepaid recharge plan of Rs 599 in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circles gives the users unlimited local, STD and roaming calls on any network except the Mumbai and New Delhi circles for 180 days. The plan was first spotted by Telecom Talk and currently the plan is only available for users of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
It should be noted that, BSNL had discounted five of its long-validity, data-only prepaid recharge plans in select circles last month. The discounted plans include plans of Rs 549 which offered 2GB data benefits for 60 days while the Rs 561 data plan offered data benefits of 1GB with 80 days validity.
