However, do note that this is not a permanent hike and the offer is valid between January 26 and February 15, 2020. The Rs. 1,999 plan comes with a data benefit of 3GB per day, unlimited voice calling with a FUP limit of 250 minutes per day, and 100 SMSes daily. The long-term prepaid plan of Rs. 1,999 also offers free BSNL TV subscription. Earlier, the plan was offering SonyLIV subscription as well, which was discontinued last month.

Back in December last year all the telcos hiked their prepaid plans except BSNL. Instead of increasing the cost the company is offering extra validity on selected plans. This might be a good strategy from the telco to grab more subscribers and boost the user base. The only disadvantage for the company is lack of 4G services.

However, it has been expected that the company is eyeing for expanding the services in 20 more telecom circles by March 2020. Currently, the service is available in few districts of Karnataka and Kerala.
