BSNL Rs. 525 Postpaid Plan Gets Revision: Offers 80GB Data, Unlimited Calling With Carry Forward Feature

The users also get unlimited calls to all other Indian networks.


BSNL is definitely feeling the pinch after the entry of Reliance Jio in the telecom sector because it needs to keep on reinventing its offers in order to keep its relevance in the market. In this regard, BSNL just revised its Rs. 525 postpaid plan for its Kolkata.

Even though the plan is available across all sectors, it has only been revised for the Kolkata users. With the revised plan, users can finally enjoy carry forward data to the next month. This feature was present in other telecom providers like Airtel but was missing from the state-owned BSNL.

BSNL’s Revised Rs. 525 Postpaid Plan

Under the revised plan, users can get 80GB of 2G/3G data. After the allocated data is over, users can still get data at 40 Kbps. In case, the user is unable to use all the allocated amount of data then they can also carry forward all the unused data to the next month. The only catch is that there is a cap on the maximum amount and it stands at 200GB.

Apart from these benefits, the users also get unlimited calls to all the Indian networks. All calls made to Mumbai and Delhi circles are also free of cost. Regarding the SMS benefits, users get 100 free SMS messages per day. For international SMS messages, users will be charged Rs. 5/SMS.

BSNL does charge a security deposit with this plan and it varies depending on the services involved. If a user just wants local and STD services then they would have to shell out Rs. 500. Whereas, if any user wants local, STD and ISD services then they would have to pay Rs. 2,000 as a security deposit. On the other hand, if they want local, STD, ISD and International roaming facility then they would have to pay a steep security deposit of Rs. 5,000.
