Yoga guru Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurved offers a SIM card, called 'Swadeshi Samriddhi SIM', in partnership with state-run BSNL or Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited. While the SIM card is currently available to Patanjali staff, the FMCG major has announced that the Swadeshi Samriddhi SIM card will be available to the general public soon. However, one can still use the SIM card. This is through a paid membership card by Patanjali Ayurved. The Swadeshi Samriddhi card, not to be confused with the Swadeshi Samriddhi SIM card, is a card using which customers can avail up to 10 per cent discount on Patanjali Ayurved products.
Here's how individuals not employed with Patanjali group organisations can avail the Swadeshi Samriddhi SIM card:
