BSNL Trims Down Its SIM Replacement Cost To Rs. 50


After upgrading its broadband plans, BSNL is now offering its SIM at Rs. 50. The new offer is available for both prepaid and postpaid users. This is the first time that BSNL has come up with this offer. Earlier, the telco introduced this offer for 90 days. However, this time, BSNL has reduced the price permanently.

BSNL Trims Down Its SIM Replacement Cost To Rs. 50


The new charges are reportedly effective across all the circles, where the telco is operating. For the unaware, BSNL is currently operating in 20 telecom circles, but a merger with MTNL will allow the operator to expand its reach in India. That means, BSNL will have a presence in 22 circles, including Mumbai and Delhi.

Meanwhile, TelecomTalk reported that before the introduction of this offer, customers used to pay Rs. 100 for a one-time SIM replacement. But now, subscribers can avail the new SIM at Rs. 50. While Airtel and Vodafone are charging less than Rs. 30 for the SIM replacement, Reliance Jio is offering this service for free, which seems good.

BSNL And MTNL Merger: Employees Will Get VRS Soon

Besides, telecom mister Ravi Shankar Prasad has asked both MTNL and BSNL to implement the Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) as soon as possible. The minister has intimated telcos to take all necessary steps to monetize assets in a time-bound manner.

Moreover, the state-run telecom operator BSNL is expected to receive the 4G spectrum by the end of this year. To recall, last month, the government has decided to merge both Public Sector Enterprises, so that they can become competitive in the telecom sector. In fact, the Cabinet has also approved Rs. 69,000 crore revival package for MTNL and BSNL, so that new entity will become profitable in two years.
