This BSNL plan offers 2GB data per day, unlimited local, STD and roaming calling and 100 SMS per day. The plan also qualifies for the Bumper Offer which offers 2.2GB of additional data per day. So the subscribers of this plan will get total data benefit of 4.2GB of data per day.
Meanwhile, BSNL has reduced the prices for its SIM card replacement charge by up to 50 percent.
