INTRO: MTNL has launched a new prepaid recharge pack and reintroduced a couple of older promo plans in Mumbai. First off is the all-new Rs. 399 combo plan that comes with 28-day validity. It offers 500MB of daily high-speed data and truly unlimited local, national, and roaming voice calls. It also offers 100 SMSes per day.
MTNL is also reintroducing the Rs. 1,298 and Rs. 1,499 prepaid plans in the Mumbai circle. They were originally launched on a promotional basis earlier this year and had expired in July. According to the corporate, they’re being introduced on a promotional basis once more. And this point around, they’re going to expire on Veterans’ Day , 2020.
Both the Rs. 1,298 and Rs. 1,499 plans offer 2GB of daily data. However, while the latter may be a combo plan offering data, voice and SMSes in one simple recharge, the previous may be a data-only option that doesn’t offer any additional voice or SMS benefits. Another major difference between the 2 plans is their validity periods. While the previous comes with a validity of 270 days, the latter offers a full three hundred and sixty five days of validity.
As for the Rs. 14,99 plan, it also offers free unlimited voice calls and 100 SMSes per day, but do note that both the info and voice-calling benefits are limited to the company’s own networks in Mumbai and Delhi. This means if you’re traveling to the other a part of the country, you’ll be paying ‘standard roaming charges’ to use BSNL‘s network. Also, this is often not an ‘unlimited data’ plan, and users are going to be charged at 3p/KB after they exhaust their daily data allocation.
