Similarly, the 378 Plan costs Rs. 378/- and Rs. 379/- respectively. While the 548 Plan gives 5GB data per day to Gujarat users, it offers only 4GB data per day to Punjab users. However, the validity of all plans is consistent across all circles.
How long will they be available?
All these plans are promotional plans, which means they will available and valid for only 90 days from the date of launch. These plans will be either modified or will be dropped completely in favour of some new plans.

BSNL has a Rs. 444/- ‘Chaukka Plan’ live in all its circles. It is a regular plan which offers 4GB data per day for 90 days. The Rs. 666/- ‘Sixer Plan’ offers 2GB data per day along with unlimited voice calls. It has a validity of 60 days. The new 548 Plan is positioned between these two plans in terms of price and what it offers. The recently revised BSNL Triple Ace Plan costs Rs. 333/- and offers 3GB data per day for 56 days.
To sum up, BSNL has a plan for almost all types of usage scenarios. The data heavy plans are a boon for people who love to consume media all day long.

Currently these three new plans from BSNL are the best in terms of a calling and data volumes they offer.
