The state-run telecom company, BSNL has now reduced the grace period for balance lapse to seven days for its subscribers.
As per TelecomTalk, the telco was earlier offering a grace period of 15 days to recharge the number after the validity of the card expired for any BSNL subscribers, thus enabling them to retain the previous unutilised balance in their account.
Now as per a new SMS which has been sent to BSNL subscribers, the customers will now have only 7 days to recharge as the grace period has been reduced to 7 days. After this move, the BSNL subscribers will now have to recharge their number again within 7 days to utilise the previous leftover balance, after the termination of their recharge validity.
If a subscriber fails to recharge within this time, the balance will lapse. The report further reveals that BSNL also has a grace period of 60 days, wherein if the customer doesn’t recharge, then the prepaid connection of the customer will lapse.
Meanwhile, BSNL has recently launched the Abhinandan-151 plan in all circles. The BSNL Abhinandan-151 plan comes with a validity period of 24 days and offers benefits such as unlimited local, STD and roaming calls. Apart from calling, it also offers 1GB data per day that comes to 24GB data in total and 100 SMS per day for the subscribers. Once the data limit of 1GB is exhausted in a day, the speed will be reduced to 40 Kbps.
