“The new BSNL Rs 1,188 long-term recharge is a promotional pack available for 90 days with effect from July 25th”
BSNL has announced Rs 1,188 recharge for its prepaid customers in India. The new recharge is being dubbed as Mathuram prepaid voucher and offers long-term validity and other benefits. This comes days after the state-owned telco announced Rs 1,399 and Rs 1,001 long-term recharges with 270 days validity. However, the new Rs 1,188 BSNL recharge offers higher 345 days validity. The benefits include unlimited voice calls local/ STD both without any FUP, 1,200 free local and national SMS, and a total of 5GB high-speed data, which is a bummer.
As reported by TelecomTalk, the BSNL Rs 1,188 recharge is only available for users in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circles on a promotional basis. The prepaid pack is said to expire after 90 days starting from July 25th. There is no word yet if BSNL will expand the plan to other telecom circles in the country.
Talking about the Rs 1,399 and Rs 1,001 long-term BSNL recharges, they offer better data benefits. The Rs 1,399 recharge pack offers 1.5GB of data per day for a validity of 270 days, which sums up to 405GB of 4G data. It also includes unlimited calling for free across the country, except for Mumbai and New Delhi, and 50 free SMSes per day. The Rs 1,001 BSNL recharge, on the other hand, also offers unlimited call benefits for 270 days, but the data benefits are limited at 9GB and SMSes at 750.
Notably, these BSNL recharges are also being offered for a promotional period of 90 days with effect from July 25th and are currently available only in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Both Rs 1,399 and Rs 1,001 recharges are expected to be launched in other circles soon.
