BSNL will revise STV 135 from a seconds-based pack to a minute-based pack in Kerala

To follow a uniform pattern across all its telecom circles, BSNL will implement the Voice STV 135 in per-minute billing pattern like all the other telecom circles. In June, the pack launched on all BSNL circles with per-minute billing except Kerala. Now, BSNL has decided to revise the pack to minute-based billing from the 29th of September 2015.


Currently, BSNL users from Kerala are enjoying 18,000 seconds free local/STD calls to any network in India with a validity of 28 days on STV 135, which will be converted to a minute-based STV. This means that customers subscribing to Voice STV 135 may enjoy 300 minutes free local/STD calls to any network in India for 28 days.

An official BSNL statement about the revision of Voice STV 135 from per-second billing to per-minute billing read as follows;

Voice STV 135 will be converted minute based STV with effect from 29-09-2015 with 300 minutes free to any network (local/STD) with validity of 28 days. Hence, the STV balance on 29-09-2015, if any, will be converted to minutes, and tariff will be in minutes.

Note that the change is only for BSNL Kerala users, and users in other circles are already getting STV 135’s minute-based benefits. You can take a look the details of the things that they have changed in the chart below.

This is wrong. 135 was minute pack from the starting itself. Previously it was giving 335 minutes. Now it is 300 minutes.

No Khaleel its not. I was a regular user of the 135STV. It was offering benefits in per second billing. I think they changed the plan to minute billing on last week of august. I currently use the 149rs STV . As of now its in persecond billing

We have many BSNL connections in home (dual SIM Phones 🙂 )but I don’t remember calling from it since months.
Main SIM with Idea, Docomo all offer 20-30 p/m calling. BSNL good for 56 data plan only.
BSNL is like Zombie these days. It run but don’t think or benefits anyone in calling scenario.
