BSNL Chennai just announced rationalisation of ‘unlimited voice freebies’ and ‘100 SMS/day’ from May 12, 2020, under GSM prepaid mobile services. As a result of this, telephones in Chennai and the Tamil Nadu circles will be charged once their FUP limit is reached. The charges will be applied in your standard tariff rates. Users who talk in calls a lot and especially during the time of lockdown might not appreciate this move from BSNL. All the other telcos have kept their calling facilities unlimited.
Rationalisation of ‘Unlimited Voice Freebies’
Earlier, when you recharged and got an unlimited voice calling from BSNL, you could talk in calls all day long and there would be no extra charges. But now, that has changed. The telco has put a FUP limit of 250 minutes. Once you have used the complete 250 minutes, you will be charged at your base plan’s tariff. You will again get 250 minutes when the clock strikes midnight. Any of the voice benefits under this voucher cannot be used for calling premium numbers, international calls, or IN numbers. There will be charges applied if you do. In case you are found to be engaging in any of the fraudulent activities, BSNL reserves the right for discontinuing your services. All of the unutilised benefits will be forfeited at the time of expiry of your plan.
Rationalisation of ‘100/SMS Day’
Now, you can send a maximum of 100 SMS’s in a day for free. If you send more than 100, there will be charges applicable. None of the SMS benefits can be used to sending an SMS on IN number, international number, and premium number. In case you do so, more charges will be applicable. This voucher provided by BSNL is only intended for personal use. BSNL has all the rights to discontinue the service anytime in case you engage in any fraudulent activities. All of the unutilised benefits will be forfeited at the time of expiry of your plan.
