BSNL launches Abhinandan Rs 151 prepaid recharge with unlimited calling and 24GB data

BSNL Abhinandan 151 prepaid recharge plan is only available in Tamil Nadu including Chennai circles

BSNL has introduced the new ‘Abhinandan 151’ prepaid recharge pack, which, obviously, honours Indian Air Force wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who crashed into Pakistan after an aerial skirmish between the two nations. According to Telecom Talk, the plan is only available in Tamil Nadu, including Chennai circles. This new BSNL recharge, as the name suggests, costs Rs 151 and comes with 180 days of validity.


BSNL is offering unlimited local and national calls as well as 100 daily SMSes with the pack, along with 1GB 3G daily data. However, though it comes with 180 days of validity, the unlimited calling, SMSes, and the bundled data are only applicable for 24 days. This means while you can continue receiving incoming calls throughout the plan validity, outgoing call and data connectivity won’t be available. BSNL prepaid users can subscribe to this plan by sending an SMS with ‘PLAN 151’ to 123.

Separately, BSNL recently introduced a new foreigner prepaid plan at Rs 389. This tariff offers 1GB high-speed 3G data per day, post which the speed comes down to 40 Kbps. It also includes 100 SMS per day and is also available in Tamil Nadu and Chennai circle. BSNL also extended its ‘Bumper Offer’ that provides users’ with additional 2.21GB data per day till June 30th. Though the offer was supposed to end on April 30th, the company has updated its prepaid plans to confirm the extension. Plans starting from Rs 186 to Rs 1,699 including 429, Rs 485, Rs 666, and Rs 999 are eligible for additional data. The BSNL Bumper Offer started in September 2018 and was initially supposed to end in January.
