BSNL Revised ‘Pay Per Second Plan’ for Prepaid Subscribers

After huge public outcry, Pan India 3G mobile service operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) finally revised its “Pay Per Second” plan with uniform 1p/sec for all outgoing calls to any network across India from BSNL Mobile.

Earlier in the Pay Per Second Plan (STV-45), there was 1.2p/Sec for outgoing call charges to other network and 1p/Sec for calls with in BSNL network. The New tariff will be applicable with the SMS based STV-49 which provide uniform 1p/sec tariff, valid for 365 days from the date of recharge.

To activate the New ‘Pay Per Second Plan” BSNL Prepaid Customer has to send a SMS ACT 1S on 53733.Under this scheme Rs.49 will be deducted from customer’s balance talk time and new PPS Plan will be activated.

    @ Ankan

    No Mr. Bafna is right. Those offers are available in Gujrat circle. But it is a local offer therefore not available in all india basis.

  • Ankan April 9, 2011 2:40 am

    BSNL CC say that there is no such offer. The rates are 1p/s in BSNL & 1.2p/s in others(in STD & Roaming both). So this is not a real news. I request to Mr. Sanjay Bafna to know the details of this news and then post in this site.

    Thank You

  • Soumya April 5, 2011 10:27 pm

    There are no such uniform call rate offer i.e 1p/s in kolkata till date. The rates are 1p/s in bsnl & 1.2p/s in others (including STD & Roaming)

  • Raghu April 5, 2011 2:25 pm

    @Kaushik Roy
    what u have said abt call rates/best network list is correct.but my list given is only network especially in roaming. Uninor is also really good but it only lacks coverage,even with one signal, we can talk for hrs without any disconnection,if they improve the coverage definitely Uninor will come into the TOP 5 in the next 1 -2 years. have not tried out MTS till now . Idea is good in AP but not as good as Airtel.

  • Kaushik Roy April 5, 2011 1:28 pm

    @Raghu
    I am talking only about operators who are giving all calls @ 1p/1s
    overall best network wise list is 1) Airtel,2)BSNL,3)RCDMA,4)Vodafone,5)Idea,6)Tata Indicom,7)Aircel
    MTS is really good in the Circles they r present,Uninor is so so operator
    IDEA may be good in AP but in WB its below average, but it is just 1.5 years old in Kolkata so may be in next 2 years it will be better

  • tejas April 5, 2011 1:25 pm

    @blah

    yes docomo offers are very customer friendly…but their problem is very basic…”bad network”….so even after the offers u end up feeling frustrated. i m from gujarat and docomos network here isnt good and reliable. i recently used it for roamming purpose but that dint help as most of the time i was using other operators network as docomo wasnt available and so ended up paying the same re. 1 for incoming and re. 1 and rs. 1.5 for outgoing… so no use.. what else to say.

  • Raghu April 5, 2011 1:06 pm

    @Kaushik Roy
    as per my knowledge, all over india best is 1) Idea 2) Airtel 3) Vodafone 4) BSNL 5) RCDMA, but while roaming we have to keep first 3 sims with us so that if there is no coverage of one operator, we can rely on another operator, if the first three not able to provide, then BSNL comes into the picture.

  • Kaushik Roy April 5, 2011 12:49 pm

    In kolkata circle Idea,RGSM/RCDMA,Docomo and now BSNL giving all calls including roaming @ 1p/1s
    and network wise best all over India as per my thinking is 1)BSNL , 2)Idea and 3)RCDMA
    others are lacking behind in coverage like RGSM and Docomo

  • blah April 5, 2011 11:01 am

    only tata docomo gives 1p/sec everywhere including roaming, although they don’t have network at several places.

  • ansh April 5, 2011 10:12 am

    this discrimination should be stopped by operators. Pan-India also on roaming should be charged at 1p/sec and hope TT takes this up with the concerned and do the needful immediately .

    NOT ALL PROVIDERS,,,,,IN KOLKATA VODAFONE AND AIRTEL STILL NOT PROVIDING 1P/SEC TO ALL NETWORKS,,,,, THEY PROVIDE ON NET @ 1P/SEC AND OFF NET @ 1.2P/SEC,,,,,

    Atleast they provide 1.2p/sec In Gujarat Vodafone, Airtel and Idea are charging 1.5p/Sec to Landline. Whereas BSNL provides 1p/sec to all even while roaming from the very beginning.

    MTNL is still spoil-sport. When will they remove the Rs.1/50 tariff ?

    same MTNL roaming issue discuss by we both many times here but nothing happens on MTNL Mumbai deaf ears even after MNP implementation. Remember MTNL Delhi already giving roaming calls @ 0.70ps/min.then why only MTNL Mumbai can’t reduce roaming rates?

  • selvam April 2, 2011 4:19 pm

    @pam it is not in other pvt operators ok.. they are gvg to curtail the closure of connections ..also so many connections are not active in means of incoming & outgoing calls…that’s why the are showing that they are having more connections..but in bsnl they are maintaining the norms as per the TRAI’s directions..if u are not charging the connection will be closed automatically..but the pvt operators are maintaining the recharge condition for the retailers..also bsnl is giving validity on topup vouchers it self by gvng validity with talkvalue

    @ISHWAR

    ISHWAR :
    BSNL HAVE TO DECLARE UNIFORM TARRIF OF 1p/2Sec to all local for 365 days validity with the Recharge less than 50RS.
    Then it will be considered as best among private service providers.

    Very good suggestion brother. If Bsnl does that then it will be the best affordable mobile operator of India.

    Best among private or Best among all ? Anyway, I don’t think they’ll offer so low a pack as after all, BSNL offers Outstanding services so service cost will be more unlike Docomo which offers superb deals but has a poor network well enough to prevent you from enjoying any offer’s true potential.

    But still, as BSNL is PSU, it may offer too low priced packs as well .

    Wow ! So, words come true… Few days ago, I had just for fun sent UPC Request from my BSNL no. BSNL people called me and asked about why I want to port. I told about Tariff and validity vouchers. They said, no info. about ending up of validity voucher system but soon, 1p/sec will be made uniform for all operators and 1p/2sec for all Local calls will come up for 2/3 months for Rs. 65-75 just like most other operators as against current Rs. 61 for just 1 month. 1 News correct, waiting for the second.

  • Abhijit April 2, 2011 1:39 pm

    For west zone since launch it was 1ps/sec tariff. But rs.69 deduction frm balance for 365 days. So now for west zone bsnl users whether it will be rs.69 or rs.45 deduction?

  • Mane April 2, 2011 1:31 pm

    And roaming charges?

  • Abhijit April 2, 2011 1:30 pm
