BSNL Launches Rs.9, Rs.29 Prepaid Recharge Plans to Offer Unlimited Data, Voice Benefits

Airtel customers can win free Amazon voucher: Here's how

State-owned Telecom operator, BSNL, has come out with its latest offer to ward off competition from Private Telecom operators like Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel. The latest offering from the public sector enterprise is the Freedom Plan. There has been a lot of focus on ultra-low-cost plans in the recent few months and BSNL seems to be catering to this requirement of its customers with the launch of the Freedom plans.

BSNL’s Promotional Offer:

The state-owned Telecom operator has released the Freedom pack as a part of the Independence Day celebration. Under this scheme, a “Freedom Offer – Chhota Pack” offer has been released. Currently, the Telecom major has launched two plans under this scheme. The plans can be availed starting 10th August onwards.

BSNL Freedom Chhota Packs explained:

The first plan offered under the Chhota Pack is a prepaid plan for just Rs. 9. Under this plan, users will receive 2GB of mobile data with FUP speed restricted to 80Kbps, unlimited voice calls to all Telecom operators (except to Delhi and Mumbai) and 100 Free SMSes. All these benefits are available for the validity period, which is one day.

The second plan on offer is the Rs. 29 prepaid recharge, where users will receive 100 Free SMSes per day, 2GB of mobile data with FUP speed restricted to 80Kbps and unlimited voice calls to all Telecom operators (except to Delhi and Mumbai). All these benefits are available for the entire validity period. This plan has an extended validity period of seven days.

Both the plans are aimed at low-cost users, typical daily wage users. The plans also come with a free Personalized Ringback Tune (PRBT).

When can these plans be availed?

Although this promotional offer is targeting the Independence day, the plans are available from the 10th of August and the offers run up to 25th August. Users can, therefore, purchase these plans multiple times between the 10th and the 25th of August. However, in case the Rs. 29 plan is chosen and the plan period runs beyond 25th August, the benefits will automatically be revised to 1GB of mobile data per day and 300 SMSs limit per week, for the remaining validity period.

Incidentally, these are the benefits extended under BSNL’s latest low-cost plan – Rs. 27 plan. While the Freedom plans seem attractive, users must remember that this is a promotional offer and is available only for a limited period of time. On the contrary, the Rs. 27 plan is available to all users (except subscribers in the Mumbai and Delhi circles) and at all times. Under this scheme, users can avail mobile data of 1GB per day and 300 SMSs for the entire validity period, apart from unlimited voice calls to all Telecom operators. The validity period for this plan is seven days.

Apart from this, BSNL has also made a slew of changes to its other post-paid plans, where users that currently have the post-paid connection with a plan that is less than Rs. 399 will be provided with 100 free SMSes for the entire validity period of their plan. For users that are subscribed to a post-paid plan that is Rs 399 or more will receive 100 free SMSes per day as part of the revision.

Interestingly, BSNL’s Chhota Freedom packs, seem to be the cheapest ones on the market currently, as the closest competition comes from Reliance Jio, with its Rs. 19 plan that provides 150MB of 4GB data along with voice calls for a validity period of one day. On the contrary, both Airtel’s and Vodafone’s entry-level plans are priced at Rs. 47.
