By March 11th, 2016 AT 12:57 PM

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has announced the revision of annual prepaid 3G data plans by removing the monthly usage limit. The tariff will come into effect from March 16, 2016 on PAN India basis.

With this revision, the users would get full data instantly and validity of one year. BSNL, in order to give more flexibility, has also increased bundled data available on annual data plan DPV4499 from 30GB to 40GB.

BSNL revised its annual data plans exactly one year ago to make it monthly benefit plans. After the revision, BSNL couldn’t find much success, as customers had to make full upfront payment for entire year, but was getting data on monthly basis like a postpaid plan.
