BSNL is leaving no stone unturned to cope with the current financial crisis in the telecom sector. The company recently announced that it would increase the tariffs from December. While this move may not please many subscribers, the company has found another way to make its customers happy. It is extending the validity of one its prepaid plans for a year.

The Marutham plan was launched as a promotional offer until October 23 in the month of July.

The pack was initially launched for a limited time. The company later extended the availability of this plan until January.

Initially, the plan offered validity of 345 days but now BSNL has increased the validity of this plan for 20 days to 365 days. This means that the subscribers will now get the pack benefit for an additional validity of 20 days. This change has been announced on the BSNL’s Tamil Nadu website. The plan will be available till January 16, 2020.

BSNL under the Marutham plan also offers other benefits in addition to a long validity period. The subscribers get unlimited voice calling with a capping of 250 minutes of free calling per day. Callers can make these free calls to Delhi and Mumbai circles only. The plan also offers 1200 free SMS and 5GB data throughout the validity period.Read More..
