State-owned telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched a new voice and data centric plan for Rs. 429, which will provide unlimited voice and 1GB data per day for 90 days for prepaid mobile services.
This plan will give free voice (local/STD) on any network and up to 90GB data (1GB per day) for 90 days on pan-India basis (except Kerala circle), a company statement said in New Delhi on Tuesday.
R.K.Mittal, Director (Consumer Mobility) BSNL board, said: “This voice and data centric plan is available for Rs. 429, that is, Rs. 143 per month which gives unlimited voice (local/STD) on any net and 90GB data (at 1GB per day) for 90 days, which is the most competitive plan in present market scenario.”
Last month, BSNL launched a mobile wallet in collaboration with MobiKwik. At the time, the telecom operator said the wallet would enable its existing 100 million customers to make bill payments and transact on e-commerce platforms. As we mentioned, the wallet has been developed and issued by MobiKwik on behalf of BSNL.
“With this co-branded wallet, the ease of payment will be extended to all the customers while equally strengthening financial inclusion in the rural hinterlands, which often get neglected. Going digital is the need of an hour for both urban and rural areas, and this partnership is definitely a step in right direction,” said Communications Minister Manoj Sinha. The wallet app enables fast online recharges, bill payments, shopping and bus booking, among many other activities.
