BSNL or Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited has been continuously launching new offers in a bid to not lose out market share to rival Reliance Jio, although Jio's " Summer Surprise Offer" and "Dhan Dhana Dhan Offer" are set to end in few days. In its latest offering, state- run telecom operator BSNL has increased data offering in some of its postpaid plans. Under these revised plans, BSNL is now offering data which is up to 8 times more compared to its previous offer. The new offer by BSNL is applicable from July, 1, 2017. All existing postpaid customers will get the benefit of the revised plans, according to BSNL.
Here are the plan details
Under 'Plan-99', BSNL now offers 250 MB of data. Earlier, the telecom operator did not provide data along with this plan. All other benefits under the plan remain same. This plan comes at a monthly rental of Rs 99.
Another plan, called 'Plan-225', now offers 1,000 MB of data compared with 200 MB earlier. Along with data, subscribers of this plan also get free calls worth Rs 180. This plan comes at a monthly rental of Rs 225.
