BSNL or Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is offering hundreds of GBs of mobile data along with voice calls in recharge packs priced at Rs 399 and Rs 429. Aggressive pricing of high-speed data by Reliance Jio has led the telecom industry into a highly-competitive mode, with telecom operators revising their offerings and making new announcements frequently. BSNL has reduced validity under its Rs 429 pack, which is available in select circles. Subscribers to the Rs 429 BSNL pack get 1 GB data per day for a new validity period of 71 days, according to the BSNL website.
BSNL Rs 429 recharge pack
BSNL has reduced the validity period offered under a data STV recharge pack priced at Rs 429. BSNL now offers a validity period of 71 days with the Rs 429 pack.
