BSNL Now Shipping 25 Times More Data With STV 35, Also Revises Rs 53 and Rs 395 Prepaid Data Vouchers

BSNL is back with another revision, and this time the government led telco has made changes to three STVs of Rs 35, Rs 53 and Rs 395

By April 24th, 2019 AT 7:44 AM
  • As per the new revision, the STV 35 offers 5GB data whereas STV 53 offers 8GB data
  • The STV 395 which used to come with an upper cap on calling, now offers unlimited calling

At this point, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is making moves after moves in the market and sending waves which are helping it draw customers and retain them as well. As per the report on subscriber base for the February month, the telecom operator managed to add around 900,000 subscribers to its base which was although not a highly impressive number but much better than Airtel and Vodafone Idea which lost subscribers in the same month instead of making new additions. In its latest move, BSNL has again revised a couple of its plans to offer different data, validity or brought another change. These plans which have been revised by BSNL were STVs in the BSNL prepaid portfolio, and now they provide more data.

Revised Benefits of STV 35, STV 53 and STV 395

The first plan in the BSNL prepaid portfolio to change is the STV 35 which previously used to offer 200MB data. However, BSNL has done a massive flip to this plan, and now the STV is providing 5GB data to the subscribers for a validity period of 5 days. Notably, BSNL has not made any changes to the validity of this plan and it previously also used to offer five days’ worth of data, but now the data offering has been increased by almost 25 times.

The next plan in this roster to change is the STV 53 for Rs 53 which previously used to offer 250MB data to the subscribers for 21 days. However, now this STV will offer a whopping 8GB data, but the validity of this plan has been cut short by seven days down to 14 days. Given, the latest data trends but, the shortening of validity seems about right since there’s a slim chance that subscribers are going to extend their 8GB data for 21 days.

Lastly, the STV 395 has also been revised by the state-run telco to offer unlimited calling and national roaming except to Mumbai and Delhi circles and FUP data of 2GB per day, with the post-FUP speed throttling down to 80 Kbps. The validity of this plan stays put at 71 days. Previously, this plan did not use to ship many benefits to the subscribers on the calling front and only used to bundle 3000 minutes on net voice calls and 1800 minutes off-net voice calls along with the 2GB per day data. However, there is no cap on calling in this plan now.

BSNL Changes Benefits of Rs 666 Prepaid Plan

In related news, BSNL has also recently withdrawn two of its plans the PV 999 and the PV 2099. Both of these plans used to come with 365 days validity and used to offer different daily data benefits. Additionally, BSNL has extended the validity of its BSNL Sixer 666 plan which previously used to come with 122 days validity, but now offers 134 days of benefits to the users.

Good job bsnl. Hit like if you are a Bsnl employee on TT! I can see an employee army here on TT….:)


Some people always against truth. They can not trust the real picture. Ha ha ha ha..

BSNL 3G speed. Yessss 3G… Not Others 4G symbol instead of 2G/3G speed……


BSNL has good and consistent speed. But their 3G coverage is not up to the mark(especially in 2019 when most of network has good wireless broadband(3G/4G)coverage) .Their 3G is limited to Cites and some Towns. BSNL Management(including government) don’t have interest to invest more in 3G coverage. If they have 80% 3G coverage then they will see revenue hike(Most of secondary sim will be move to primary). Nowadays smartphone users don’t have interest in using only 2G(call). I was forced to use private operators because of lack in 3G from BSNL. But they simply do blame game.


Bcz that tower is free of load….3g or 4g is just a data tube. How big the tube, water supply in that tube, load on the tube determine speed each gets. U r just lucky…others aren’t.


Lol..I think thumbs down are there bsnl employee army here..:)


Its fun to troll illogical bsnl employees here
