In the past few days, we have seen a lot of plan withdrawals and revisions from the state-led telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL). The telco has made it clear that it is not letting the market dominates itself and is making consumer-centric moves to better its position. Most revisions lately from BSNL has been about increasing the data offering in its prepaid vouchers or STVs or about increasing the validity of its plans. However, now we are getting to see a new plan launch from BSNL, and this STV comes for Rs 56. The telco has also announced the withdrawal of the STV46 at the same time.
BSNL Rs 56 Data STV Benefits, Validity and Other Details
BSNL has announced that this newly launched STV will be effective starting May 13. The new Rs 56 STV from BSNL will bundle 1.5GB daily data to the subscribers. The validity of this STV will be for 14 days. Apart from this, BSNL has not informed of any other benefit which means that the STV will only avail data benefit to the users. Another thing to note is that currently, this STV will only be available in Tamil Nadu and Chennai circle. Subscribers who would like to recharge with this STV would be able to do so with the self-care keyword STV DATA56. Additionally, they will be able to use C-Top-Up or the Web Portal to recharge their number with this new STV.
BSNL Announces Withdrawal of STV 46
BSNL has announced that it will be discontinuing its STV46. To recall, this STV for Rs 46 used to offer 1GB free data and then beyond that subscribers were charged 5p/MB. The validity of this plan was 2 days. It seems like a logical step from BSNL since now the subscribers are getting to enjoy unlimited data benefits in many STVs and prepaid vouchers. There is also the option of combined offerings where BSNL subscribers can enjoy unlimited calling and data both.
STV 47, STV 98 Revision and 2.21GB Additional Data Offer from BSNL
In a new move, BSNL has also made revisions to its Rs 47 STV and Rs 198 STV as well. Previously, the Rs 47 STV used to offer unlimited calling to the subscribers (Except to Mumbai and Delhi) for 11 days, but now the voucher will avail 1GB data along with unlimited calling for nine days validity. Similarly, the Rs 198 STV which used to offer 1.5GB daily data for 28 days will now offer 2GB daily data to the users, and the validity of this plan has also been increased to 54 days, which is just double of what the telco was previously offering. It is also worth noting that BSNL has extended the additional data offer for its subscriber where it is providing extra 2.21GB daily data over existing data FUP limits.
