Rs.83 Local/National On-net SMS @ 0.05p (1/2 Paisa – Half Paisa per SMS) & Local/National Off-net-SMS @ 7p 20 Days

The implementation of the revised tariff has been made in accordance with 43rd Amendment of Telecom Tariff Order issued by TRAI.

    Hi friends, bsnl chairman intentionally doing this, they want customers to change bsnl network to others, they are taking gift from private service providers to provide ridiculous plans, from bsnl, they are getting salary, from other network gift. We only suffer by changing network, I was using bsnl from last 5 years. I stopped because of poor network in cities like Chennai and harassing plans. Bye bye bsnl. PSU going to merge with some private company.

    Well, the network is very good out here in northeast India, but the sms packs tariffs are just ridicuolous! Please do something, unlike other network providers BSNL should introduce an sms pack with sms balance with a validity of a weeks,months etc. Instead of deducting 10 p , 7 p so on…! Please look upon this matter and do something, it would be of great help!.

  • Arjun Chandrashekar March 7, 2013 5:53 pm

    I Hate BSNL Due To Lack of Call Connectivity. Internet Connectivity is Not Available Most of The Times. Especially When I Use Other Operators Sim Cards, They Provide Better Efficiency Whereas BSNL Needs Some Sorts of Confirmation SMS To Get GPRS Services. Whereas in Other Operators For Example Aircel – I Hate Aircel Because of Poor Coverage But Coming to The Part of Internet, Aircel Immediately Provides Internet Connection as soon as I Inserted This Company Sim Card on My Mobile

  • suresh March 7, 2013 4:45 pm

    BSNL is the worst network, worst service & introduced worst SMS packages. I hate BSNL, Bcoz this network doesn’t consider the problems of customers, and they won’t take care when customer plans for portability to another network. Bcoz this is the only network which is belongs to GOVT. They always says that, if u use it, use, otherwise get last from this network, but we’ll not change, our self, we’ll not change our plans & we’ll not take care about customer. We’ll always run this network in lose, Bcoz v r GOVT, that’s y I would like to plan for portability.

    when i send the STV31 to 53733 as usual on 3rd FEB 2013, the repy got is the following:
    incorrect option. Available key words for sms boosters are
    SMS 13/SMS20/SMS34,SMS53/SMS83/SMS33/SMS54. pls send fresh sms to avail the same–bsnl mobile.
    Any ways bsnl has become very useless and it is looting. Same is the case with BSNL 3G internet connection.” It says faster than ur thoughts” i think it should add one more line to the tagline, ” It says faster than ur thoughts in looting your money”

Same has been confirmed with customer care. BSNL has not yet released any SMS packs in kerala circle and blocked all previous SMS packs.

  • kumar January 4, 2013 8:41 pm

    How to activate this new sms packs? bsnl portal does not give option to recharge this pack.
    Is this pack applicable to all circles ?
    In bangalore the bsnl customer care officer says he is not aware these pack options and only 68 rupees pack is available for sms.

    • anindya January 8, 2013 10:51 am

      right..BSNL customer care of West bengal said only rs 68 pack is available..he is not aware of any other pack..are you using this 68rs pack? how did you recharge?

      • kumar January 12, 2013 9:42 pm

    i think now BSNL do’nt want more customer . as after this step many user change their BSNL Number. i think BSNL’s Corrupt Policy maker fixing with other operators. that’s why they do’nt want business they want only their profit.

  • amit January 3, 2013 9:07 pm

    what the hell is this ??? all sms being charged????????????????????this is absolute bullshit!

      exactly , 100% agreed with amit… :–/ really this is Bullshit!!
      other operators are better then bsnl now..

  • Priyan January 3, 2013 6:24 pm

    Its now too costley for SMS, I use to maintain the BSNL connection only because of this sms pack, now they has changed and its too expensive now. But the same time other operators are providing better sms offers. And the sad part is if we call customer care, first of all it take more than 30 min to connect the customer care, once they pick then conufusion begins. They dont knw have any update on plan, second thing iif we ask complaint or higher officer contact they will not provide, there is no nodel desk escalation…and the funniest part is if we ask so many clarification they will say “sir we would like to transfer your call to our supervisor” and they will not lister what we are trying say and again we need to wait in line another 30 min to speak the supervisor. And again we need to tell all the our complaint story.
    I fed up with BSNL its like hell now…Thinking to port out some other telecom.,..and will not suggest any bsnl to anyone…

    Thanking you….a sad bsnl customer

  • arushi January 3, 2013 10:20 am

    network to ghatiya tha hi ab to sms plans bhi bakwas hai ekdum ….m looking to porting on other network.

  • Aji January 3, 2013 10:18 am

    BSNL is not a customer friendly network service provider. It exploits public to feed the officials of the Co.

    What is the use of keeping BSNL SIM with us.

    No life time validity (all other networks providing).
    No free SMS with recharge (all other networks providing).
    Call charges & SMS charges are highest in the industry.
    BSNL is for BSNL staff only. Not for the public. Its not our liability to feed your officers.

  • payal January 2, 2013 10:39 pm

    bsnl has became comletely bakwas…no use of such service…
    even the customers dont get the news about any such changes..bsnl should atleast mention it in newspaper or atleast msg the customers..if they can message stupid things like dis is free n all stupid news den y nt dis…??????????
    Plz chang all dis scheme… msg pck is imp 4 students…

    • Ayush January 2, 2013 11:46 pm

      Totally agree with payal.. Sud atleast provide consumers with info. about change in newspapers. Im also switching to otner netwrk.

  • powlami January 2, 2013 10:32 pm

    Bsnl has upset me with the new sms tariff……need 2 switch 2 different operator 🙁

  • Deeksha January 2, 2013 8:34 pm

    First of all the sms pack was expensive while compared to other users and now no free messages at all???? Not practical,have to switch over to a DIFFERENT USER!!!

    • VENKAT January 2, 2013 10:23 pm

      Yes. Even costlier than airtel. i already applied for porting. Seems airtel is best service provider now a days. cost is ok as all operators are charging the same

  • Tom January 2, 2013 7:30 pm

    I use BSNL because it was consumer Friendly now will port because it has now become money-Friendly….

  • vicky January 1, 2013 10:35 pm

    these are bad rules without any information how it can be made. bsnl cheated with us. ek taraf mehangai bad rahi h aur ab bsnl bhi pocket khali karne ki skims laga raha hai. students ka to socho jinka sara kam sms pe chalta. . . . aaj hi recharge karwaya aur apne apko thaga feel kar raha hu. . sare desh ka kharcha hum aam insano ki jeb se nikal lo. bakwas services chalu kar dete ho.

  • Sachin Godambe (Pune) January 1, 2013 8:01 pm

    Why BSNL has not given this news in Mainstream media and Newspapers as its applicable for whole of India? Why retailers are not told about changed tariffs so that they would not have done recharges with old plans which have created arguments with customers. This is poor planning and implementation.
    Also even if 10 Paise per SMS is not that bad, why we have to recharge Rs.31 with 30 days validity for it. BSNL should reduce Normal SMS rates from 50Paise to 10Paise without any STV Recharges required to be done, so that People will make more use of it, even if daily limit is 100 SMS’es.

  • Vinod January 1, 2013 7:13 pm

    In Kerala for STV 53 SMS pack – we got 3000 sms for 1 month.
    Now with new STV 52, 2 month validity (so Rs 26/month rent itself). Assume we spent Rs 52 per month for sms. So 52-26=Rs 26 WORTH sms we can send after the Rs 26 which is gone as per month rent. That is 260(10p per sms ) sms only before it was 3000. Bsnl is playing very cheap business trick. We customers are very aware of it.

  • chacko December 31, 2012 12:35 pm

    Bsnl should have reatained the Rs13 sms plan

  • raju December 30, 2012 4:49 pm

    kabil sibal is tell don’t give any proper traiff to bsnl network and let we make bsnl staff confuse . i said not to giving any traiff sheet to reatailer shop in tamilnadu& though india since 2010-2012 if arrange that bsnl won’t run in lose rs5000croce above.

  • kathir December 30, 2012 4:38 pm

    In BSNL tamilnadu stv61–30p/min for LOCAL30 days —– Change it as 71 and make it as waste
    In AIRTEL tamilnadu stv69–30p/min for LOCAL 30 days
    In AIRTEL tamilnadu stv169–30p/min for LOCAL 90 days
    so please make 61-30days, 161-90days like airtel —- dont make bsnl user to not use ur network

    • Sathish, Gobichettipalayam December 31, 2012 12:17 pm

      In BSNL Tamilnadu stv61–30p/min for LOCAL30 days —– Change it as 71 and make it as waste,

      Hi Kathir,

      Why waste?, along with this pack BSNL providing Rs.20 Talk time in account, also you can call fixed/landline calls in Tamilnadu@30p/min, but your Airtel, Aircel, Vodafone, idea, DoCOMo, Reliance is not being provided this facility in TN.

      Here the problem is tariff and plans visibility in BSNL network that is the fact!
      Best and another option: Local calling (mob/Fixed/landline) at 0.5p/sec for 30 days.

      Did you know?

      BSNL is being provided half paisa local calling pack at just Rs.35 for 30 days.

      For this pack you can make call to any mobile /landline number in Tamil nadu @0.5p/sec (1p/2sec), this is the very cheapest local calling pack in Tamil nadu when you compared to all private network in TN.

      Because none of the private operators in tamilnadu is not allowed to make local landline at 0.30p (half paise/sec), they allowed only local mobiles at 0.30p/min.

      To get this BSNL half paise local calling pack, just sms VOICE35 to 53733(Toll free) or DO RC35 that’s it, then check validity *124#.

      Another best option for Local & STD Calling to Any mobile/landline/fixed line in India:
      USE BSNL 135 Free Minutes Pack: By Do RC135:

      Get 400 minutes FREE Local & STD Calling to Any mobile/landline/fixed line number in India for 30 days, to check balance minutes dial *124#.

      Its net cost is 0.33.75 paise per min.

      Till date, No one ready to provide this kind of pack in India. It’s avail only in BSNL Mobile (Pan India)

      Now tell which one is the best/ more affordable?

      BSNL Mobile or Private Networks?

      • Anirban Das January 1, 2013 12:23 am

        Private Operators. 🙂 😉
        Better service , better coverage, better network.
        BSNL should go to hell. :@

  • kathir December 30, 2012 4:23 pm

    hi this is kathir from selam. like to say that if any implement by trai is only followed by bsnl.
    but we don’t like traiff provide by trai,because i am using both bsnl , docomo and vodofone.
    1: bsnl always changing call traiff , plans,also cost is high,no proper customer care service , ect, i was very interest to use bsnl because i am bsnl reatailer but i can’t able to use.
    2: always cheaper as low traiff implement great trai rules .why this company giving this why not bsnl?
    3: vodofone always screat offer bi dial short codes *141# etc free offer rs80 etc equal to bsnl 99boster, why not like this.. all private company giving more offer and service 99% more than bsnl

  • Ashish December 30, 2012 12:18 pm

    From yesterday evening i can’t connect my BSNL 3G USIM in 3G mode as i recharged my number with Rs.98 i.e. a 2G Data Plan. My BSNL Sim got registered in 3G mode showing Full Signal Strength but unable to connect. But when i tried to connect in EDGE Mode its get connected. I am from Burdwan West Bengal Area. Now my question whether BSNL now restricting its user to access in 3G mode if they recharge 2G packs? Anyone facing the same problem in West bengal?

  • Jagannath December 29, 2012 6:25 pm

    BSNL Orissa customers can still enjoy the old tariff…

    Rs.31 = 2000 local SMS + 1000 STD SMS (with 30days validity)

    No new tariff has been implemented as of now, and the above recharge is still working. Enjoy !

    Too BAD.

  • Sathish, Gobichettipalayam December 29, 2012 3:11 pm


    Not only in BSNL, All networks has prepared to charge – Off-net SMS: 10p/SMS in few hours / few days, no one escape from this, you can go any network in India by MNP, but you will charged off-net SMS: 10p/SMS.

    Why no one blames Airtel and Vodafone, they are changing the SMS game in telecom industry by demanding 10p/SMS from other network. Till now Aircel, BSNL, DoCOMo, Reliance has ready to give Free SMS but that Airtel, Idea and Vodafone won’t accept. These cartels are demanding 10p/SMS as SMS termination charges! So everyone should blame only Airtel, Idea, Vodafone not any other network.

    In Chenai & RoTN BSNL’s smart move:

    That’s why Chennai & RoTN BSNL has understand the bad situation; on last 20-12-2012 Chennai & ROTN BSNL has been withdrawn all its flagship sms packs like SMS14: L/N SMS@5p for 30 days, SMS21:1500 local SMS (15 days), SMS36:3000 L/N SMS, SMS56: 6000 L/N SMS (60 days), but except RC: 46 / SMS46:4500 L/N SMS (45 days), which pack (SMS46) only available in market.

    I have heard the this SMS46 pack will also removed after launch the above mentioned SMS packs, so if you really smart just Do RC46 now and at least enjoy 4500 FREE Local/National /Roaming SMS for next 45 days. This pack is the last option for BSNL Mobile Customers in Tamil nadu.

    This is the smart move by Chennai & ROTN BSNL.

    Hats-off to Chennai & ROTN BSNL’s executives.

  • Kingston December 29, 2012 12:29 pm

    Dont blame BSNL. What TRAI doing on sms termination fee? Nothing. Why TRAI not ready to reduce sms termination charges? Because with the help of KAPIL SIBAL, nowadays TRAI giving its full support to AIRTEL. So we cant expect any low tariff still ‘corrupt kapil sibal and cong govt’ is there. Its time to look back our former minister RAJA. With the help of RAJA only today we are enjoying per second pulse and 30p cal rate. Kabil sibal waste fellow. Who want national level number portability? We want free national roaming. But they are going to implement nation wide portability. Who want this? Waste fellows and waste minister.

  • Anirban Das December 28, 2012 10:49 pm

    TATA DOCOMO Karnataka users can avail RC46 gives 2013MB 2G data for 5 days, for limited period. I done normal recharge at zipcash and got the benefit. I am using it in Roaming at Andhra Pradesh Speed at 200kbps .

  • Ameer December 28, 2012 4:07 pm

    Reliance is Far better now in Andhra Pradesh:
    RC35 gives
    1. loc at 1p/2s, STD at 1p/s, R-R at 1p/6s
    2. 500MB per month
    3. Full TT on every recharge above 10
    4. 200SMS free with 1st SMS at Re.1/-

    this comes with validity of 6 months ( 180 days)..

    But keep in mind that Reliance will always cut balance in the form of VAS activation. So keep checking balance daily, Other wise it is the best plan so far..

  • Raghu December 28, 2012 2:40 pm

    I do not why this TRAI is implementing such orders by increasing the SMS Termination Charges.
    TRAI is for increasing the customer base in India or increasing the rates as they want and reduce the customers This is quite bad. Some has to complain on this to Supreme Court on the high termination SMS Charges like everyone complained when it become 100 sms/day.

    • shyam April 4, 2013 5:09 pm

      Due to FDI 100% in telecom sectors,the foreign companies forcing TRAI to increase the plans rate of BSNL ,because now bsnl have almost more than 15crore custome and huge number of old customer.
      Govt. is going to privatise the BSNL very very weak and poor plans are introduced.very soon the employee of Bsnl will lose their job.God bless to BSNL.

  • sapattu raman December 28, 2012 8:11 am

    Dear Telecom talk readers, now its time to think again on these high profit making companies like BSNL, IDEA, AIRTEL, VODAFONE and RELIANCE. These are the companies have high market share, but these are the companies hiking their tarrif as well as sms rates and also those are charging for voice calls in special festival days(they called these days as ‘blackout day’).
    Now friends we should support those telecom players who provide voice and sms/internet tarrifs at low rates. These operators are TATA DOCOMO, AIRCEL, MTS, VIDEOCON and UNINOR. These operators are facing lots of problems to survive this industry but still providing good cheap tarrif service to their customers. So friends lets support and save these operators from telecom industry.

    • Akshay December 31, 2012 5:39 pm

      I used aircel in M.P. & many retailor in my city said port out your old number otherwise you will lost your number,so I port my number with BSNL,just for sms recharge of Rs.20/- & now a day BSNL launch 2 sms packs in M.P. Rs.13/- & Rs.68/-.
      Rs.13/- validity is 2 days & sms charge 0.05p/sms & also get Rs.5/-usage & Rs.68/-validity is 30 days & sms charges .10p/sms & also get Rs.20/-usage.

      BSNL is highly expencive company now a day.

  • Manash December 27, 2012 9:32 pm

    Rs1 is Rs1.00
    50p is Rs0.50=Rs0.5
    10p is Rs0.10=Rs0.1
    5p is Rs0.05
    1p is Rs0.01=0.010
    half Paisa is Rs0.005
    So Plz update/correct it …some people r getting confused.

    • Ayusman December 28, 2012 2:01 am

      1 Rupee= 1/1= Rs 1
      50 paisa= 1/2= Rs 0.5
      10paisa= 1/10= Rs 0.1
      5 paisa = 1/20= Rs 0.05
      1 paisa = 1/100 = Rs 0.01
      1/2 Paisa = 1/200 = Rs 0.005

      So, 1 paisa= 1p
      if 1/2 paisa = 0.5 p
      if 1/20 paisa = 0.05p

      Kindly update correctly

      Blame TRAI for issuing the rules and regulations to BSNL .

    • Kirti Raj Chahar December 28, 2012 1:46 pm

      Gurdeep wait for one or two days the sms packs which are given on this page will start in your circle also and these are cheaper than other operators. all operators will also revise their sms plans because TRAI allowed 10 paisa per sms termination chargers from other operator’s sms.

  • riya December 27, 2012 9:06 pm

    its juz a harrasment 2 people….bsnl service provider should inform the customer first regarding the change in tarrifs instead of nonsense advertisements messages throughout the day…it is simply a wastage of money with bsnl service when one doesnot knw about the recent tarrif plan.bullshit…….

    • Ankur Sharma December 29, 2012 7:42 pm

      This is really a harassment to the consumers …. i am not gonna use bsnl from now on ….

  • aravind December 27, 2012 8:53 pm

    Bsnl should revise all sms offers to itz old scheme .othrwise mobile no portability is the only way 2 connect with friends…

  • Avtar singh kaint December 27, 2012 8:40 pm

    Good move by BSNL …..

  • subramanyam December 27, 2012 8:29 pm

    i think bsnl will loose customers due to charges or becoming high

    • naresh December 28, 2012 2:19 pm

      now the service providers are taking termination charges of 10 paisa per sms like vodafone took from how can a company provide you sms to other operator with with lower charges than IUC

  • vikrant December 27, 2012 8:05 pm

    pehle inke itne cheap plan lo then har sms ka pay karte raho..

    Aise aise idea atey kiske dimag me hai….

  • Bana December 27, 2012 7:59 pm

    0.05 P. is Not a half paisa. That is Five paisa. half paisa means, 1 paisa’s Half part. See the tariff method, Off net sms 10p. mean time, on net sms charge is 5 paisa.. so simple.
    Bafna plase check it. thats not half paisa, correct is 5 paisa. OK.

    • zeeshan December 27, 2012 9:43 pm

      It is 0.5 paisa or 1/2 paisa. 3000 BSNL to BSNL SMS in just Rs 15.

  • anoop December 27, 2012 7:05 pm

    dear. Thats a combo stv12 which gives 50sms and rs5 talktime for 2days…

  • dattu December 27, 2012 6:54 pm

    i think now time for me to use number portability.. i use mobile only for sms …

  • R December 27, 2012 6:21 pm

    There is no free sms count like it was giving previously, BSNL seems erasing his image in market as cheaper operator.

  • Sam December 27, 2012 6:18 pm

  • Sam December 27, 2012 6:16 pm

    BSNL is Looting INDIANS as like as Private Operators.

  • Sathish, Gobichettipalayam December 27, 2012 5:58 pm

    Due to Telecom Cartels (Airtel , Vodafone & idea) demanding 10p/SMS from other networks (Aircel, BSNL, DoCoMO, MTS, Reliance, Uninor, etc.,)

    That’s why BSNL had withdrawn its existing volume based FREE SMS packs from 20-12-2012. (Pan India)

    what these small and medium network will do?

    I think now BSNL is very fast and quickly reacted according to the market force, in next few days every networks will follow suits.

    Wait and see!

    Finally Good and smart move by BSNL!

    As a mobile customers we need to break these cartel’s (Airtel, Vodafone & Idea) market share!

    Then only customers will get affordable cost (reasonable cost) for mobile communications.

    Until no other way to go; you accept it or not you will be charged directly or indirectly by these cartels (monopoly) for mobile communications, how is it?

    if BSNL’s services, visibility is better or not; BSNL is always best(overall) for middle income peoples.

    BSNL is the one and only transparent telecom network operator in India.

      But,it is 5p ,i.e,0.05p. no mistake.

      • sunny December 27, 2012 10:02 pm

  • zeeshan December 27, 2012 3:57 pm

    0.05p means 3000 messages in just Rs 1.5.???

    • Arka December 27, 2012 8:17 pm

      5p/sms means, for 3000 msg U have to pay (0.05*3000)=Rs. 150.

    • Manish Patel December 27, 2012 8:28 pm

      Its not RS 1.5 its 150RS

      • sunny December 27, 2012 10:06 pm

    • sunny December 27, 2012 4:25 pm

    • Sanjay Bafna December 27, 2012 3:07 pm

      Nothing wrong in above post, all information is correct and perfect as officially shared by BSNL.

  • Nikhil December 27, 2012 12:32 pm

    Dear Telecom talk readers, now its time to think again on these high profit making companies like BSNL, IDEA, AIRTEL, VODAFONE and RELIANCE. These are the companies have high market share, but these are the companies hiking their tarrif as well as sms rates and also those are charging for voice calls in special festival days(they called these days as ‘blackout day’).
    Now friends we should support those telecom players who provide voice and sms/internet tarrifs at low rates. These operators are TATA DOCOMO, AIRCEL, MTS, VIDEOCON and UNINOR. These operators are facing lots of problems to survive this industry but still providing good cheap tarrif service to their customers. So friends lets support and save these operators from telecom industry.

    • Riju December 27, 2012 12:49 pm

      Who said that BSNL is a profit making company.. Bsnl is in loss for last 2 years..

      Tata docomo recently hiked their internet tariff two times.. And their service is very poor..

      Aircel ,Videocon , Mts and Uninor are going to stop their service in kerala… Then how can we chose these operators..

    • spiderman December 27, 2012 12:59 pm

      Aircel was good, but they Turned off Towers in Kerala circle (Before 1 month, they stopped postpaid connections, ussd codes, all recharges, Aircel outlets also closed down etc) without informing the Customers and did not give any notice to Customers to port out ! I had kept 1000 Rs Talktime in my aircel number and without Coverage how could I consume it ? They have 1700 towers in Kerala & around 1000 towers they turned off yesterday onwards. And they telling they are not shutting down, but implementing new Business model.. lol !! By turning off the towers, they are implementing the Business model.. Huh

  • Saurabh December 27, 2012 12:28 pm

    Whatever companies are doing is not in anyone’s interest. It will hurt them and consumers also. The company with more customers will earn more. I understand 10p termination charge on other networks but what the hell is this 5p for own network also. What are these fixed monthly charges for?

    These price hikes will definately make those users go or stop using services who bought mobile and become a user after 2009 when services become dirt cheap especially users in villages. Worst affected will be students, who have no income and start keeping phones because of low monthly expenditures which fell from around 300-350/month to 50-100 only.

    Recently my friend asked me, Why companies are hiking prices? Before answering him, I asked him, when prices fell by 60-70 percent suddenly in 2009, why didn’t you asked the question that why prices fell so much? When something happens in your interest or benefiting you, you never ask question but if something reverse happens or start hitting your pocket, you wonder why it is happening.

    It was getting difficult for companies to survive, now it will get difficult for consumers to continue and companies will again get nothing.

    As far as using Internet apps for messaging is concerned, only 15-17 percent of mobile users use it. 27 percent have the Internet enabled phones but don’t know about it and find it hard to use Internet i.e subscribing and configuring phones, 60 percent still having phones that either don’t support Internet or is too old and can’t install apps. Even some phones released in 2010-11 don’t support apps like Whatsapp, Nimbuzz, Skype etc.

    • SUNNY December 27, 2012 2:15 pm

      its not 5 paisa . its 0.5 paisa TT HAS WRITTEN WRONG ,, PLZ UPDATE IT
