Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has just launched a new first recharge coupon (FRC) of Rs 249. It is a new voucher which is available for users for a limited period only. The BSNL Rs 249 FRC offers users 2GB daily data along with unlimited voice calling and 100 SMS/day. Its validity is 60 days which is a substantial period given the benefits and the plan’s price. The plan is giving 1GB extra every day, which is included in the benefit of 2GB daily data. Do note that the voucher is only available until March 31, 2021.

The FRC can only be applied by new BSNL users who are recharging their phones with currency for the first time. BSNL has also announced that any existing recharge denomination of Rs 249 will be shifted to a nearby vacant denomination at the earliest.

BSNL Rs 249 FRC: To start with the prepaid coupon offers users 2GB daily data with a validity of 60 days. The coupon will also bring unlimited calling and 100 SMS per day. However, the offer is promotional and will only be valid till March 31, 2021. The development was first noted by Kerala Telecom.
