Adding more to this festive season, the state-owned telecom service provider BSNL has announced a new tariff plan of Rs 74 on the occasion of Christmas and New Year. This new plan will be coming with the validity from December 24, 2017, to January 1, 2018, which means you can recharge using this plan during this period only.
The plan does not offer any unlimited call option which is quite disappointing but Rs 74 tariff offer does give 1GB data per day and 100 SMS per day for three days. It also offers Rs 10 talk time onto the main balance. Another disappointment is its three validity only. But if we talk about the good point of this plan then this it serves the purpose of providing the benefits of internet and SMs on the blackout days like such as December 31 and January 1, when no plan is valid and users are charged regular rates.
Other incumbents like Airtel and Jio have also come up with plans like this and this new plan from BSNL will directly be giving competition to them. Airtel’s Rs 93 tariff plan gives unlimited voice calls, 100 SMS per day, and 1GB 4G/3G/2G data for ten days. And Rs 98 tariff plan from Reliance Jio offers 150MB data per day, 140 SMS, and unlimited voice calls to any network for 14 days.
This Rs. 74 plan is good for those who wish to send wishes to dear ones via SMS as the companies charge normal rates on days like this including Idea and Airtel. But it would be great to have call benefits as well in this plan.
