Micromax-new-logo

 

  • 2GB of free data per quarter for 12 months
  • 500 minutes of voice calling per quarter for 12 months

The customer has to do a recharge of Rs 153 post buying a new Micromax device and inserting a BSNL SIM card in it. The offer will become applicable from 1/7/2014 and will go on for the next 6 months which is pretty much till the end of this year. The following are the model numbers of the applicable devices:

Smartphones

  • X-88
  • A-37
  • A-37B

Tablets

  • Micromax Funbook P-410-I

Data card

  • MMX-377G

This comes across as a good move to push the data consumption in India which is still not as high as it should actually be. Seeing the fact that all these are entry level devices in their respective arenas, it is pretty evident that it is the low cost market that is being targeted. Let us know if you have any other queries.

extend this offer to all company dongles and mobiles with existing and new connections by just placing an IMEI number or any other process.

this is a good move by bsnl. bsnl has to improve its quality of service. and for speed concern it is better than docomo and many others in up west. and they charge what you use, not like others.
