As we reported last month, BSNL is getting aggressive in the postpaid segment with three postpaid plans of Rs 199, Rs 798 and Rs 999. Alongside launching these plans, the telco removed the existing postpaid plans of Rs 99, Rs 225, Rs 325, Rs 799 and Rs 1,125. BSNL brought these new plans to compete with the latest postpaid offerings from Reliance Jio. Jio’s Postpaid Plus plans start at Rs 399, but the basic plan costs Rs 199 only. So the customers can now consider BSNL as well before opting for Jio’s Rs 199 plan. With these new postpaid plans, the telco has introduced data rollover facility and family add-on connections as well. Continue reading to know more about these new postpaid plans from BSNL in detail.
