BSNL Rs 197 prepaid recharge plan details

The BSNL Rs 197 prepaid recharge plan appears to be one of the most lucrative recharges available in the Indian telecom market as of now. With the plan, users get to enjoy unlimited free calling, 2GB of daily data, and free SMS.

Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, there’s a catch. The 2GB daily data will be available for the first 18 days of the recharge and post that, users can use the Internet services at 40 kbps. Similarly, the unlimited free calling benefits will also be available for the first 18 days with the BSNL Rs 197 prepaid recharge plan. Incoming calls will continue to run for free throughout the plan’s validity (150 days), but if you want to make phone calls after the first 18 days, you will have to top-up your plan.

The 2GB daily data will be available for the first 18 days of the recharge and post that, users can use Internet services at 40 kbps.

In any case, the BSNL Rs 197 prepaid recharge plan brings value for money benefits, as no other telco appears to be providing these many benefits for Rs 197. For those needing a long-term recharge plan, the BSNL Rs 197 plan could be a solid offering.

BSNL appears to be moving in the right direction and the approach has been very positive lately. That being said, the telco still has a long way to go, as its infrastructure, its network capabilities, and even its reach among the Indian consumer, are not at par with the private telcos of the country. The government-run telco, however, is will be provided assistance of Rs 44,720 crore by the central government this financial year. Additionally, the government of India will give Rs 3,300 crore to BSNL for VRS (Voluntary Retirement Scheme) and Rs 3,550 crore for GST. With this help, we can expect BSNL to improve its services and come out as a more competent brand.
