    BSNL – Chennai – To know 3G/2G Balance – try *124*1#. Also you can sms DATA 3G to 53733 to get the balance in SMS. Both works!

    To know internet data usage on your bsnl mobile sim card, dial *112# then enter 2 and then send/ok.
    You will get your data used and validity left.

    Above didn’t work for //bsnl card.

    By Data Card Dial 123 Then Dial 2 again Dial 2. You have to Dial in one call only.
