BSNL confirmed that the validity of the plan for the affected prepaid subscribers is being extended till May 31. This extension is free-of-cost, so that subscribers can continue to receive incoming calls even during these tough times. As we mentioned, the extension in validity and 100 minutes of free calling benefits will be given to those prepaid customers whose validity of the plan expired on or after April 1.
BSNL’s Managing Director Pravin Kumar Purwar has also urged customers not to rely on retail stores to recharge their mobile numbers and instead resort to online option only.
BSNL last month announced the extension of Special Tariff Voucher (STV) worth Rs 398 for its customers. Although, this promotional offer was to end on April 9, but now it has been made available till July 8. This plan includes unlimited high-speed data, unlimited voice calls and 100 free SMS daily with a validity of 30 days.
