As a part of its efforts to rationalise voice calling tariffs, BSNL has now made several changes to some of its Special Tariff Vouchers (STV) across India. Basically, the company cut down validity in some vouchers while adding freebies like talk-time in some other vouchers.
As an example, BSNL has reduced the validity of existing packs of Rs 45, Rs 122, and Rs 47, but the company has added some talk-time in Rs 88 pack to make the deal even sweeter. You can get all the details of those revised packs in chart that’s embedded below.
