  • alt text

    Though BSNL is not the front runner in the Indian telecom industry, it’s presence even in the remote areas can’t be written off. This is an exclusive article on the BSNL prepaid recharge plans for validity extension.

    Earlier, the state-run telecom company BSNL used to have affordable tariff plans. However, with the entry of Jio, the state-owned telecom network is also at par with other networks in terms of recharge plans.

    The good thing about BSNL is its introduction of new tariff plans at regular intervals. Recently, it has introduced a ₹49 prepaid recharge plan for its subscribers in Chennai and Tamil Nadu circles. It offers 100 minutes free calling, 2GB data and 100 SMS with a validity period of 28 days.

    One can expect the same plan to be launched in other telecom circles too.

    Leaving it aside, let’s have a closer look at the other prepaid recharge plans by BSNL for validity extension:

    Though the BSNL has got a huge following both in prepaid and postpaid segments, the state-run telecom network is neglecting the much needed 4G deployment.
