It is worth saying that the telecom network sector in India is rapidly growing. With the introduction of Reliance Jio, things quickly changed and we have seen several affordable plans from BSNL, Airtel, Vodafone, etc.
Airtel was the first telecom network to introduce a new scheme called 'Talktime loan' with which every user will be able to a certain amount of talk time as a loan. That said, the same scheme was implemented by other telecom networks as well.
Recently, the talk time loan expanded to 'Internet Loan', which works the same as previous, but every user will receive some amount of internet data as a loan. Let's see how you can get internet loan in a BSNL SIM card.
Before you start the procedure, you need to check whether your BSNL SIM card meets with these requirements.
- Your BSNL SIM card should be 90 days old.
- Your SIM card should be of prepaid. That said, BSNL haven't rolled out the service to postpaid users.
- You should not have any outstanding loans with your number.
