The Rs 485 tariff plan by BSNL Karnataka will also be applicable on national roaming, the telecom company said, except the Mumbai and Delhi circles.
BSNL's Rs 485 pack also comes with the benefit of unlimited voice calls. This includes local and STD calls, BSNL noted.
BSNL's Rs 485 pack comes at a time the Indian telecom industry is in a state of high competition. Free voice calling offers and aggressive data pricing by new entrant Reliance Jio - which offers telecom services under brand Jio - has led many incumbent telecom operators to revise their existing data tariffs and announce new offers, say some analysts.
Reliance Jio Rs 459 plan
In a recharge pack priced at Rs. 459, Reliance Jio offers high speed data of 84 GBs - with a daily limit of 1 GB - for a validity period of 84 days, according to the telecom company's website- jio.com. Jio's Rs. 459 pack includes unlimited voice calls.
Reliance Jio offers several recharge options to its prepaid customers. Starting at Rs. 52 (validity of 7 days), Jio recharge plans go up to Rs. 9,999 (360 days). Voice calls are free and unlimited in all plans of Jio. Short-message service is unlimited in many plans but in some of the plans it is capped.
