BSNL Prepaid Plan Validity Revised: Here’s What the New Packs Offer

The new BSNL prepaid offerings include new validity periods for Rs 99, Rs 118, Rs 319, Rs 999 and Rs 1,499 packs.


Indian state-run telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has announced new validity periods for its prepaid mobile plans. As part of the new offerings, the revised BSNL prepaid plans come with new validity periods. Instead of increasing the prices of the plans, BSNL has instead reduced the validity periods of each of the five plans. The operator has also revised the price of one of its long term prepaid plan, and with that, offers a wide range of validity offerings of varying lengths.

BSNL Prepaid Plans: What Each New Plan Offers

Starting with the Rs 99 BSNL prepaid plan, the latter previously offers 22 days validity, and now comes with 18 days of validity. The plan offers unlimited local and national phone calls, as well as free caller tune customisations for subscribing users.

The Rs 118 prepaid plan, meanwhile, offers 20 days of validity instead of 26 days. The plan offers 500MB of free 4G data, as well as unlimited national voice calling. However, it does not come with any bundled SMS offering.

With the Rs 999 prepaid plan, BSNL now offers unlimited voice calling and two months of custom caller tunes for a period of 200 days. Previously, the plan was available for consumers for a period of 240 days.
