The Government of India introduced Swachh Bharat cess of 0.5 percent on service tax with effect from November 2015. All the telecom service, which were charged with 14 percent Service Tax, would be increased to 14.5 percent after levying Swachh Bharat cess. On account of increased service tax, BSNL has revised its CDMA prepaid offering across all the circles.


BSNL has increased the MRP of its CDMA Plan vouchers, STVs and Data STVs by Rs 1 – Rs 3, while validity and benefits offered would remain unchanged.

BSNL has also said that all Top Up/C-Top Up/Flexi Top Up vouchers will be charged with a service tax of 14.5 percent instead of 14.0 percent.

the govt just wants money… the greedy politicians keep overcharging all these companies, and the companies put the load on the customers. I don’t think anything is being done about education. nope. not a thing.


I dont see unlimited plan for cdma bsnl mobile on their site. Where its mentioned about 398 rs plan with unlimited data for 30 days? Anyone using it in pune? How is the speed?

Last time i checked UL plan was costing around 800 bucks pm. Since when its revised to 398 or 396?
