BSNL Launches New Plan; Idea Revises Nirvana Plans

The state-owned telecom operator BSNL has launched an all-new long-term plan to take on the competition. The newly launched plan comes with a validity of one year with benefits such as unlimited calls and a daily quota of high-speed internet.

BSNL has launched Maximum Prepaid Plan which only costs Rs. 999 and will offer benefits for whole one year from the date of recharge. It offers unlimited voice calls, 100 free SMS and 1GB of high-speed data per day with additional benefits. The Maximum plan from BSNL will compete with the others from Airtel and Jio.

BSNL Maximum Prepaid Plan – Tariff And Details

The official press release from BSNL says that the Maximum Prepaid plan will provide unlimited high-speed data with a limit of 1GB per day, unlimited free voice calls (excluding roaming calls to Mumbai and Delhi) and 100 free SMS per day. Post FUP of 1GB data, users can enjoy unlimited data at a throttled speed of 40 Kbps.

The benefits are valid between for the first 180 days. For the next 185 days, voice calls will be charged at 60 paise per minute for both BSNL-to-BSNL and off-net calls.

Comparable Plans From Airtel & Jio

Both Airtel and Jio have similar long-term prepaid plans of Rs. 999/- which offer similar benefits. But the BSNL Maximum Prepaid Plan is better in terms of validity and offerings. Airtel offers unlimited voice calls, including national roaming calls. But they are capped to 250 minutes a day or 1000 minutes a week. It also includes 100 local and STD SMS per day and 60GB of 4G data for 90 days.

Reliance Jio also has a similar plan with benefits which include truly unlimited roaming calls, 100 local and STD SMS per day and 60GB of high-speed 4G data for 90 days.

Which Long-Term Plan is Better?

Clearly, BSNL’s Maximum plan is ahead of the other plans. It does not actually run for a whole year. But 180 GB of data, for 180 days, at Rs. 999/- is still better than similarly priced plans from Jio and Airtel which offer 60GB data for 90 days.

It is also worth noting that the BSNL Maximum Prepaid Plan is valid throughout the country except for Jammu & Kashmir, Assam and North East circles.
