BSNL Ends Data Carry Forward Facility, unused data to be cancelled

BSNL-BBBSNL was offering carry forward facility for its STVs and data vouchers for long time. But it has now decided to stop this facility and has directed all circles to implement this change with immediate effect.

On BSNL network subscribers could use same voucher to carry forward STV benefit or data benefit before the end of validity. This was a huge relief for subscribers who are not able to use up full benefit before validity expires. Now any unused benefit will be canceled at the end of validity and cannot be carry forward.

Operators with data carry forward facility

TATA Docomo has recently announced to allow users to carry forward unused data for 2G+2G and 3G+3G recharges. Another operator which currently allow carry forward is Reliance communications, which offer carry forward for all data recharges and certain STVs on both GSM and CDMA service.

Carry forward facility are welcomed by subscribers, but operators are reluctant to offer this service as they are afraid of decline in revenues and misuse of this facility.

Please share your view on BSNL decision to stop carry forward facility.

You have already dug a graveyard for you. Now we are ready to push you into it (port out to some other operators).

I thought this came into effect in January itself. I had about 3GB of data in Jan & I have been subscribing to the 176 recharge pack. Then came the Intelligent Network migration (Kerala circle to Trichy circle). From then on, whenever I checked my data balance, my plan was being shown as 139.I can’t figure out how that happened. Then I recharged with the 176 plan as usual & the whole remainder data was wiped clean. Doing away with carry forward data is one thing.But how can they just change the plan I’m subscribed to?

On migration, they had changed all to 139, what kind of intelligent network it is I really wonder.

One of the reasons for this decision could be the fact that BSNL recently revised some of its days packs validity. It’s now offering 60 & 90 days validity on selected packs.
