BSNL has reduced the base tariff for new prepaid customers for first three months. The revised tariff means that BSNL subscribers can call local/STD/On-net/off-net in the home circle at just Rs 0.50/min. This plan is for subscribers who take “Per Minute” tariff.
In case you opt for the “Per second” pulse than the tariff will be 0.8Paise/sec for all national and local calls made from home service area. The reduced call rate will be made available for new prepaid users for a promotional period of 90 days after which the plans will get reverted back to the original base plans. The plan won't be extended for further recharges. This offer will be valid on PAN India basis.
BSNL has been aggressively revising its tariffs and plans. The good thing is that BSNL has also been reintroducing popular plans so that they will be able to retain customers. We just hope that they also invest enough efforts to revamp the infrastructure and also improve after sales support.
