Will someone please tell me, how to activate Rs 54 gprs plan (ie day 300 mb/night 2gb) or any 2g gprs plan via SMS, USSD etc. ????

My neighborhood vendors don’t know how to e-recharge for any GPRS plan.

(Note – GPRS is pre-activated on my SIM. I can currently use Rs. 1/MB. But i want to activate other affordable GPRS plan, like Rs 54 plan..)

Please Help
