Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has been known to launch festival specific STVs for its subscribers. Also, it is not surprising that the government led telecom operator has made its intentions of being a consumer-centric company public. BSNL did away with blackout days, introduced many attractive prepaid plans and also revised its existing plans to lure in customers. Now the telco might be on the lookout for similarly starting this year as it has announced a special tariff voucher for the occasion of 70th Republic Day. This new Combo STV of Rs 269 will be live on January 26 for BSNL subscribers.

BSNL STV 269: Benefits and Details

BSNL has announced that this new STV of Rs 269 will be available for a limited time starting January 26 till January 31 and it will be available pan India, in all circles of BSNL. The telecom operator has also said that the benefits of this plan will include talk time of 2600 minutes on any network along with 260 SMS on top of 2.6GB data all of which will be valid for 26 days. On the rollout of this new Combo STV for 70th Republic Day, BSNL CMD Anupam Shrivastava said, “on the occasion of 70th Republic day celebrations BSNL greets?their esteemed customers.” As of now, it’s unknown whether this new plan from BSNL will ship with free Eros Now subscription or not. For the unaware, the telco recently announced its partnership with Eros Now and offering a free premium subscription with some of its prepaid plans.

It is worth noting that in the second half of last year BSNL has made many strides to better its operational strategy along with ramping up the customer service for better results and for competing against the competition which seems to be brewing in the industry after the entry of Reliance Jio. Speaking of BSNL’s recent developments, the government led telecom operator has launched the Wings VoIP service which will allow users in poor cellular connectivity to make calls via the internet.

BSNL Launches a Slew of Yearly Prepaid Plans

Soon before that, BSNL also launched a new annual validity plan of Rs 1,312 which offers benefits worth of 365 days which means that users won’t have to recharge their BSNL numbers again and again. This came after Reliance Jio announced its own annual validity plans and since then BSNL has introduced its half-yearly and annual prepaid plans. Some of the more popular year-long validity plans of BSNL include the Rs 1,699 and Rs 2,099 plan. Apart from that, the operator has also debuted the half-yearly Rs 899 prepaid plan in AP and Telangana circle which comes with 270GB data benefit or 1.5GB per day and also offers 50 SMS per day.
