BSNL’s new plan could easily set off another tariff war amongst the operators. Dubbed as India Golden Fifty Plan, it tends to set a standard price for all the networks across the whole of India. Be it local calls, STD or even SMS, a user will be charged only 50 paise. If a user tries a call on any BSNL number, he’ll be charged 20 and 30 paise for local calls and STD respectively.
The plan will be available from March 1 for a monthly rent of Rs. 375.
We Say: Even though the tariff is quite lucrative, the monthly rent is a bit of downer. Rs. 375 per month in addition to the call charges will make many think before jumping onto this scheme. We would recommend this only if you’re usage is around Rs. 500 – 600 per month.
