Telecom operating companies are introducing new plans to give competition to Reliance Jio. The government- owned telecom operator BSNL, has brought in a new prepaid plan of ₹599.
As reported by TelecomTalk, this new prepaid plan from BSNL is also offering extended validity to its subscribers. The customers who wish to opt for the Rs 599 plan from BSNL can extend the validity of their old plan by 180 days. The report said, “When the consumers recharge with this plan, they will extend the validity or the expiration date by six months.”
During the plan period, BSNL users will get free local and STD calls in all telecom circles expect for Mumbai and Delhi. The interesting thing to note here is that the plan does not offer any data.

The Mukesh Ambani-owned telecom operator offers unlimited local and national calling with 100 SMS and 1.5GB data per day under the plan. The plan comes with the validity of 91 days. The telco also offers another plan of Rs 399 which offers the same benefits but comes with the validity of 84 days.
