  • Alongside increasing the daily data benefit, BSNL reduced the validity of Rs 98 plan by two days
  • BSNL now has four plans that come with free Eros Now subscription

After reducing the validity of two voice-only prepaid plans of Rs 99 and Rs 319, BSNL has now revised its Rs 98 data-only prepaid STV which is valid across the country. Well, this revision has both good and bad moves from BSNL as the telco has increased the data benefit, and at the same time reduced the validity of the plan by two days. Furthermore, the Rs 98 Data STV now comes with Eros Now subscription for 28 days. For the unaware, BSNL partnered with Eros Now to offer free content with some of its prepaid plans. At the moment, the telco is providing Eros Now subscription with only the newly launched Rs 78 prepaid plan, and now, it has added the Rs 98 plan to the list. Additionally, BSNL’s other prepaid plans of Rs 333 and Rs 444 also come with Eros Now subscription.

BSNL Rs 98 Prepaid Plan Receives a Revision: What it Offers?

To recall, BSNL used to offer 1.5GB data per day for 26 days with the Rs 98 prepaid plan. However, after the revision, the plan comes with 2GB daily data benefit, and once the FUP limit completes, data speeds will be reduced to 80 Kbps. Earlier, the plan did not offer any after FUP data, so it’s a welcome move by BSNL. Sadly, BSNL has reduced the validity of the prepaid plan by two days and it now offers benefits for 24 days from the date of recharge.

Lastly, the plan now ships with free Eros Now subscription for the validity period. To make use of the subscription, you’ll have to head over to Eros Now app and login with your BSNL prepaid plan which is recharged with the Rs 98 plan.

BSNL Prepaid STVs of Rs 333 and Rs 444 Now Offer Eros Now Membership

Alongside revising the Rs 98 data-only STV, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited also added Eros Now benefit to the Rs 333 and Rs 444 prepaid plans. These two plans are available for a long time, but now, they ship with Eros Now subscription for the validity period. The Rs 333 Prepaid STV which is also known as BSNL Triple ACE plan offers unlimited voice calling, 3GB data per day and Eros Now membership for 45 days. On the flip side, the Rs 444 or BSNL Chaukka plan provides unlimited voice calling, 4GB data per day and Eros Now subscription for 60 days from the date of recharge.

Except for the addition of Eros Now membership, BSNL did not make any changes to the benefits of both the plans. These new changes from BSNL are already valid across the 20 telecom circles where the telco has its services.

BSNL Revises Rs 99 and Rs 319 Voice-Only Prepaid Plans

In recent times, BSNL has made a habit of reducing the validity of its popular prepaid plans. Earlier this month, it reduced the validity of Rs 99 and Rs 319 voice-only prepaid plans which disappointed many users out there. Both the Rs 99 and Rs 319 plans offer unlimited voice calling benefit to any network across the country. They now come with a validity of 24 and 84 days respectively. Earlier, BSNL offered the same plans with 26 and 90 days validity.
