BSNL offers 1GB data per day, unlimited calling at Rs 999

The new BSNL prepaid plan is available in all circles except North-East India, Jammu and Kashmir, and Assam.

Well, this BSNL plan competes with Jio's prepaid plan priced at ₹999 which offers a total of 60 GB of 4G data along with 100 free SMS per day and unlimited local and STD voice calls for 90 days. However, the Rs 93 plan comes with a catch. The pack comes with a validity of 365 days.

State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has announced a new prepaid plan for its users in India.

However, after the first 181 days, customers will be charged at the rate of 60p/min for local and STD voice calls, and 25 paise for one local SMS and 35 paise for one national SMS. The plan costs Rs 999 and aims to take on Jio and other leading telcos like Airtel and Vodafone that offer free voice calls and unlimited data.

The Nirvana 499 plan offers 40GB data with rollover benefit up to 200GB. With the updated plans, Idea is offering additional benefits of free 4-month subscription to Idea Phone Secure, 4-month subscription to Idea Magazines, and a free 12-month subscription to Idea Infotainment Apps. There's no daily limit on the data. All local, STD and roaming calls are free excluding Delhi and Mumbai. Under the Rs 4999 plan, Jio offers same benefits only with more data. Additionally, subscribers get unlimited calling benefits and 100 SMS messages per day limits.

BSNL 4G services are based on the existing spectrum and BSNL users can avail high-speed 4G services with their existing 3G-enabled SIM cards. Earlier, the Rs. 699 plan offered 45GB of data.

Lastly, the Rs 999 Nirvana Plan now offers 80GB data, as opposed to the previous offering of 70GB. The data rollover limit of up to 200GB is also applicable in this plan. Whereas, the Idea Nirvana Rs 999 plan offers one-tenth of the data quota at the same price, albeit for postpaid users where data rollover is possible. However, the bundled SMS messages with the Jio recharge are capped at just 300, while Airtel users will get 100 SMS messages per day, meaning 2,800 for the entire validity.
