- The Rs 96 prepaid plan offers freebies validity of 21 days
- The telco has also revised the Rs 118 STV and the Rs 153 prepaid plan
As we are drawing nearer to the festive season, we are getting to see more and more offers from the telecom operators. Reliance Jio is on the forefront of this, while other telcos are also shipping some or the other offer. The state-led telecom operator, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is also pushing some offers specially for the festive season. Come October, the telco has also extended some of its attractive offers for the public which includes introduction of new plans, revisions of the previous plans among others. In a latest update, BSNL has reintroduced a plan which it had discontinued before. The plan that we are talking about is the prepaid voucher of Rs 96. It is worth noting that BSNL had introduced this plan as a promotional offer for sometime, and it was then withdrawn. However, now the plan has been reintroduced again.
Reintroduction of Prepaid Voucher Rs 96
It is worth noting that the prepaid voucher of Rs 96 is known as the Vasantham Gold plan or simply the PV96. Now in this piece of new information, BSNL has announced that it is reintroducing the PV96 for a promotional period of 90 days. The telecom operator has also noted that this plan will go into effect on October 5, 2019. Now there comes the question of what the BSNL prepaid voucher of Rs 96 ships for the subscribers, so here it is.
It’s noteworthy that the validity of this plan 180 days but the freebies validity with the Rs 96 prepaid plan by BSNL is only for 21 days. In this period, the subscribers will enjoy 250 minutes per day calling to any network and national roaming, and after this period, the subscribers will be charged according to the base plan. In addition to the calling benefit, the subscribers will also get the 100 SMS per day benefit as well. The prepaid plan of Rs 96 by BSNL is a good offering for the subscribers who are looking to use voice calling on their BSNL SIM simply, or in case they want to pair this plan with a data STV.
BSNL Revises STV118 and PV153
Along with reintroducing the Rs 96 prepaid plan for a promotional period, BSNL has also announced the revision of two plans. The first plan that has undergone revision is the Rs 118 STV. The changes which BSNL has made to these plans are not massive, and they simply bring the PRBT to these recharges.
The Rs 118 STV offers 250 minutes per day calling to any network, and it also ships 0.5GB data per day at high speed and an after-FUP speed of 40 Kbps. The validity of this plan is 28 days. The prepaid voucher of Rs 153 offers similar benefits to the subscribers as the Rs 118 STV. This plan also comes with 250 minutes of calling every day, which includes calls to Mumbai and Delhi, other networks and roaming as well. The data limit in this plan is also 0.5GB per day with an after FUP speed of 40 Kbps. After the revision, the prepaid voucher of Rs 153 also comes with PRBT. The validity of this plan is also 28 days.
During the festive season, BSNL has also announced a validity extension offer on its Rs 1,699 prepaid plan. Currently, the BSNL prepaid plan comes with a 455 days validity, meaning an extra 90 days of validity. The subscribers also enjoy the additional 2.2GB daily data on this plan courtesy of the Bumper Offer.
