BSNL long-term prepaid recharge plan:   BSNL has introduced Rs. 2,399 pre-paid plan that comes with 600 days of validity from the date of activation. Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) made the announcement through its Chhattisgarh Twitter account. This plan comes with 250 free minutes of outgoing calls per day and seems to offer no data benefits. According to a report, this plan is available all over India and brings free BSNL Tunes for the first 60 days from the date of activation. The validity of this plan seems to be the major selling point as there seem to be no other benefits for customers.

BSNL Rs 2,399 prepaid plan benefits

The plan ships with a FUP limit of 250 minutes per day on outgoing voice calls to all networks and a quota of 100 SMS per day. It offers a validity of 600 days which is almost 1 and a half years. 

Reliance Jio also offers a Rs 2,399 prepaid pack in the country. But, unlike BSNL’s Rs 2,399 prepaid plan, Jio’s plan provides 2GB of daily data quota as well as unlimited voice calling benefits without any FUP limit which means truly unlimited calls.

Jio’s Rs 2,399 plan offers a validity of 365 days or one year while BSNL’s similarly priced plan offers almost double validity, but no data benefits. 

BSNL 2399 plan data benefits

As mentioned earlier, there are no data benefits with the Rs. 2,399 plan and as per the report by BSNL Teleservices, every MB used will cost 25 paise. This means customers will have to get separate and additional data recharges with this plan. Once the FUP limit for calls has been crossed, you have to pay normal call rates of Rs. 1 per minute for local calls and Rs. 1.3 per minute for STD calls. Additionally, this plan is said to come with free BSNL Tunes (caller tune) for the first 60 days from activation, after which, the charges are Rs. 42 per month. All other terms and conditions for this plan are on the “per minute plan” basis.
