Tariff War: Does the BSNL 1125 Postpaid Plan Offer Better Benefits than the Airtel’s Rs. 1199 Plan?

India’s leading telecom operator Airtel and state-run telecom operator BSNL are going aggressively in the telecom market to outsmart the new entrant Reliance Jio. While Reliance Jio has only a few plans in the postpaid Department, BSNL and Airtel has a plenty of plans to choose from.


BSNL’s postpaid plans start at Rs. 99 itself, which offers 250MB data per month. On the flip side, Airtel’s postpaid plans start at Rs. 299 and go all the way up to Rs. 2999. For average users, BSNL is offering a Rs. 1125 plan, while Airtel has a Rs. 1199 postpaid plan. Let’s take a look at which plan you should opt for.

1.Both Plans Offer Unlimited Voice Calls

We must admit that Jio is urging its rivals to offer free unlimited voice calls. The primary aim of these unlimited plans is to offer free voice calls for postpaid users. And, both the operators providing unlimited voice calls to any network across the country.

2. Airtel’s Rs. 1199 Plan Gives More Data

With the BSNL Rs. 1125 Plan, the company is offering 20GB data per month. On the other hand, Airtel is providing 17GB data per month. That said, Airtel is also giving extra 10GB data per month for both existing and new postpaid customers for three months, making it 27GB data per month. So, Airtel offers better data than BSNL in this way.

3. Airtel’s Plan Gives 3000 SMS Per Month

Airtel is offering 3000 SMS per month with this plan, while BSNL doesn’t offer any SMS benefits. However, you can use only 100 SMS per day due to TRAI’s limitations.

4. Airtel has Other Multimedia Services as well

Apart from the regular offerings, Bharti Airtel also offers additional digital content with their Wynk Music and Wynk Movies subscription. Yes, users whoever enrol themselves under Rs. 1199 pack will be provided with a one-month free Wynk subscription, while BSNL doesn’t offer any multimedia benefits.

5. Bharti Airtel Stands as a Winner

Even though BSNL offers more regular data, the additional data offer makes Airtel the winner. Also, Airtel offers SMS and multimedia services, which clearly misses out with the BSNL plan.
