The State-run telco BSNL has announced the revision of all its prepaid mobile plans across its operational telecom circles. The operator has revised the base tariff of nearly 14 existing prepaid mobile plans on a PAN India basis. This includes the revision of tariff charges for voice calls, video calls, data charges, SMS charges, and inter circle roaming charges for voice, data and SMS series with Vodafone in Delhi.
BSNL Prepaid Mobile Plans Revised
The BSNL prepaid mobile plans under the latest tariff revision include the plan vouchers 152, 199, 197, 399, 397, 485, 666, 699, 999, 997, 1499, 1999, 2399 and FRC 249. Of these 14 plans, the plan voucher 997 is currently in the per-minute tariff and it will be revised to a per-second basis. The other plans will be available at a per-minute tariff.
As of now, it has been announced that there will be no changes in the plan validity or freebies for any of the prepaid plans mentioned above. Only the tariff will be changed and it is applicable to the base tariff. Besides these, BSNL has also revised the minimum recharge condition to avail outgoing SMS services to chargeable shortcodes. This is applicable to all new and existing prepaid mobile subscribers across the country.
Initially noted by Kerala Telecom, the development will allow only prepaid vouchers with MRP Rs 147 and above to get outgoing SMS facility to chargeable shortcodes.
BSNL Promotional Plans Coming Soon
Also, BSNL will launch new promotional plans starting from September 6, 2021, to encourage subscribers in the grace period to use the network actively by recharging their numbers. The telco will provide incoming SMS facility only to prepaid mobile customers in West and North Zones.
It will stop the facility of receiving SMSes to those who have not recharged post the expiry of their validity. This applies to users in the South and East zones. The North and West Zone users can enjoy the incoming SMS facility for a grace period of 60 days on a promotional basis. Even the others can enjoy this if they are GP2 customers in VLR to encourage them to recharge and become active customers.
