BSNL Rs 1499 Plan is the Best Annual Prepaid Recharge Plan that Offers Data and Unlimited Voice Calls

BSNL Rs 1,499 prepaid plan offers 24GB total data with 395 days total validity, and sits alongside a new Rs 429 prepaid plan that offers unlimited internet and calling for 81 days.


BSNL has announced new prepaid plans in a bid to rope in more consumers to its network. The first of the two plans introduced is the Rs 1,499 prepaid plan, which is an annual recharge plan by the state run operator. It offers bundled overall services, but does not come with any complimentary entertainment access. The second plan introduced recently is the reintroduced Rs 429 prepaid plan, which replaces BSNL’s previous Rs 429 recharge plan. The new plan offers an updated data allowance, alongside other perks that include entertainment services as well.

BSNL Rs 1,499 prepaid plan is an annual plan, which means that it has default validity of 365 days. As a promotional offer, BSNL has announced that if customers purchase the plan within the first 90 days of it being made available in the market, they will get an additional 30 days of validity, therefore giving users a maximum of 395 days validity with the prepaid recharge plan. As per its benefits, the BSNL Rs 1,499 prepaid plan will offer a total of 24GB data, or about 2GB data per month. Naturally, this plan appears better suited for those without heavy data requirements. Instead, BSNL is focusing on offering extensive voice call allowance.
