Right from the entry of Reliance Jio in the telecom market, a new pricing war has been triggered between the telco majors. Now, BSNL has launched an unlimited calling and a data plan for Rs 97 a month. But, this plan is only for the buyers of Micromax’s 4G VoLTE enabled Bharat phone. Priced at Rs 2,200, the phone will support 3G connection as well. During the launch, Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha said, “I am glad that BSNL has come with 2 new schemes. This will not only increase BSNL subscribers but also strengthen their financial position.” He added, “This is step to expand digital India mission”.

BSNL signs pact with Micromax

“We are proud that we are partnering with Micromax, a home grown player on the auspicious occasion of Dhanteras. This will connect the unconnected masses in rural area at very affordable rate,” BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava said, while announcing the agreement with Micromax.

Shrivastava said the telecom corporation is in the process of starting 4G services from January 2018.

BSNL, which operates across the country except Delhi and Mumbai, has over 98 million mobile subscribers and 16 million landline customers.

Unlimited data and calling

Micromax Co-founder Rahul Sharma said that BSNL will provide unlimited calling and data along with free incoming and outgoing calls during roaming, under this partnership. “The phone will cost Rs 2,200 and it’s effective price will be cheaper than that of competition in the market,” Sharma added. He said that the phone has dual SIM.
