BSNL launches Rs349 prepaid plan with free calls and 54 GB data

Other than the data, this new Rs 349 plan from Vodafone India will also offer unlimited voice calls with daily and weekly limitation and 100 SMS per day for 28 days. That said, customers in circles of Chennai and Kolkata are offered the benefits of ₹348 plan for ₹347, with customers in Haryana getting it at ₹344.

A telecom tariff war seems to have started afresh with state-owned telecom operator BSNL trying to match Reliance Jio's tariffs with a Rs349 pre-paid plan that comes with a validity of 54 days and offers unlimited voice calls. Jio is only providing 4G data, given this is a 4G VoLTE network. This plan comes with a validity of 51 days and offers only data benefits. All local, STD and Roaming calls are free in the BSNL 349 prepaid plan. With the Rs. 149 plan giving a total of 42GB of 4G data for 28 days with a daily restriction of 1.5 GB data usage with unlimited call for voice roaming, STD and local, 100 SMS and Jio app subscriptions. Considering Airtel has ranked consistently ahead of Vodafone in terms of speed and coverage, Vodafone's new plan may not be a game-changer in terms of gaining new users.

Apart from this, BSNL has also introduced three new recharge packs (Rs 118, Rs 379 and Rs 551) for prepaid customers providing somewhat similar offers like its peers. It offers 3 GB data plan that is priced at Rs 349.

You also get the option of setting any caller tune of your choice with this pack, which will be valid for 28 days. This pack is close to The Jio plan of Rs 349.
