BSNL launches Rs 1,188 prepaid plan with unlimited calling benefits valid for 345 days


BSNL has been in the continuous mix of things for quite some time now, launching consumer-centric plans now and then. The State-run telecom operator certainly lags in offering the 4G services when compared to its rival players like Airtel, Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea. However, BSNL has been making up for it by launching new plans every week. Last week we saw the introduction of two new long-term prepaid plans of Rs 1,001 and Rs 1,399, Monsoon offer and Star membership program. Now, BSNL has come up with another long-term prepaid plan dubbed “Marutham,” with unlimited calling benefits. Similar to its earlier launched prepaid plans Rs 1,001 and Rs 1,339, the new Rs 1,188 plan would be available only during the promotional period of 90 days starting July 25. 

BSNL Rs 1,188 Marutham Prepaid voucher: Details and Benefits

BSNL has launched the new Rs 1,188 Prepaid plan with unlimited calling benefits to all networks valid for 345 days. The plan also comes bundled with 5GB data and 1200SMSes for the entire validity period. A total of 5GB data for the whole validity period seems to be of quite a minuscule proportion. However, it is worth noting that the majority of its subscribers rely on the network for only calls and does not care about data.

BSNL is yet to launch the 4G services in the country, and its subscribers use data benefits on either 2G/3G connection available in their location. Hence, a mere 5GB data does not make any difference and would last for a decent amount of time during the validity period. Under the plan, the users can make unlimited calls to users of any networks in the country, including Mumbai and Delhi. This is in contrast to its earlier launched prepaid plans Rs 1,001 and Rs 1,399 where the roaming voice calls are not applicable in Mumbai and Delhi.
