BSNL Bumper 2.2GB Extra Data Offer Gets Extended Once Again, Now Valid Till January 2019

The BSNL Bumper 2.2GB Extra Data offer has received another validity extension. BSNL has even added few high-value tariff plans as well. We bring all the details about the exciting jump in free data.


BSNL has significantly extended the validity of the ‘Bumper Offer’. Subscribers to the eligible prepaid recharge plans get an additional 2.2GB data over and above the already ample daily quota.

State-owned telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has granted another extension to the 2.2GB additional data benefit offer that began earlier this year. BSNL was to scale back the offer on November 14, 2018. However, the telecom service provider claimed subscribers have greatly appreciated the initiative. Hence the state-run telecom company has decided to extend the BSNL Bumper Offer’s validity.

BSNL Bumper 2.2GB Extra Data Offer Gets Validity Extension

The BSNL Bumper Offer began earlier this year. Interestingly, this is the second such validity extension that BSNL has granted to the unique offer. No other telecom companies have been able to successfully replicate the BSNL’s bumper 2.2GB extra data offer. The new offer is valid from November 15th, 2018 to January 31st, 2019. Essentially, it is the same offer but BSNL has now allowed subscribers to grab the Bumper Offer until the end of January 2019.

After the ‘Monsoon Season’ offer, BSNL offered a mega bonus to all its users in the form of additional data. The extra data offer was launched during the extended festival season back in September. BSNL allowed subscribers to enjoy additional data during multiple Indian festivals including ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ and ‘Dussehra’. In fact, it was during this very period that subscribers gained 2.2GB additional mobile data over and above the data they received as part of the prepaid recharge plans.The offer was to end on September 15.

The additional data of 2.2GB will not replace the existing mobile data. Rather, it is supplementary. In other words, users will receive 2.2GB of mobile data over and above their existing data limit. The Bumper Offer started on September 16, but it was essentially an extension of the Monsoon Offer. It was to end on November 14. However, instead of ending the same, BSNL has allowed the offer to continue.

BSNL Bumper Offer Now Valid On STV-1699 and STV-2099 Also

Back when BSNL had first introduced and later extended the extra data benefits, plans like the INR 186, INR 429, INR 485, INR 666 and INR 999 were included. Additionally, STV packs such as INR 187, INR 333, INR 349, INR 444 and INR 448 had the extra data benefits as well. Now the telecom company has added two high value tariff plans as well.

BSNL reportedly included the STV-1699 as well as the STV-2099 prepaid recharges for the extra data benefits. Incidentally, these high value plans comes with a long validity of 365 days. Moreover, the STV-1699 offered subscribers 2GB/day data, while the STV-2099 doubled the benefit to 4GB/day. With the extra data benefit subscribers stand to gain a total of 4.21GB/day data with the STV-1699, and 6.21GB/day with the STV-2099 recharge. Readers will notice the plans appear to have about 11MB extra. That’s because BSNL is actually offering 2.21GB extra instead of 2.2GB.
