Admin last edited by Admin
In a significant move, the state-run telecom BSNL revised its postpaid plans offering unlimited calls and data rollover facility. Starting with ₹199 monthly rental, the new plans would commence from December 1st.
The newly announced BSNL postpaid plans will be available across India in all telecom circles. Currently, the BSNL has introduced 3 postpaid plans with monthly rentals ₹199, ₹798 and ₹999.
The USP of these BSNL postpaid plans is data rollover facility. With this, the BSNL Mobile postpaid subscriber can avail data rollover up to 3 months of the monthly allocated data.
The inclusion of on-net unlimited voice calls and FREE family connections is definitely a welcome move by the state-run telecom provider.
Though the BSNL has declared unlimited calling, there’s a 250-minute FUP limit for all calls (local, and STD). Post the FUP, the local mobile and fixed calls are charged ₹1 per minute and the STD calls are charged ₹1.3 per minute respectively.
Moreover, all the plans get 100 SMS per day. Post the 100 SMS limit, each SMS would be charged ₹0.8.
Let’s look at each BSNL plan in detail.

The entry-level 199 plan offers unlimited on-net voice calls, 300 minutes off-net calls, 25GB data and 100 SMS/day. Here, the user gets up to 75GB data rollover with NO family connection.

The introduction of new plans in BSNL mobile postpaid segment is a good thing. However, the telecom network took a drastic decision by phasing out ₹99, ₹225, ₹325, ₹799 and ₹1125 plans.
As a promotional offer, BSNL is offering ₹25 discount for its customers of 99/225/325 plan to migrate to higher plans.
Similarly, BSNL is offering ₹50 discount for its 799 plan subscribers to migrate to higher plans (₹999/1525). Though this is a limited offer for 90 days, one can expect it to continue further.
