BSNL had recently launched a data plan for its subscribers, under the name Chaukka444. In the Chaukka 444 plan, subscribers are able to avail unlimited data benefits for a time period of 90 days. The new promotional plan, also known as Special Tariff Voucher (STV), can only be availed by the network provider’s prepaid users. BSNL’s STV- 444 comes right after the STV-333 plan or the Triple ACE plan that was introduced earlier this year. The earlier plan was claimed by BSNL to have got a ‘successful response’.
Meanwhile, Telcom companies in India have taken to aggressive data pricing thanks to Reliance Jio’s cheap data plans. The newcomer, which rolled out its services on September 1, 2016, has already crossed 108 million user base. Earlier, BSNL had expressed concern that it is likely to feel the ‘stress’ this financial year because of intense competition and asked the telecom department to speed up its receivables. All these new plans by BSNL indicate an effort to aggressively compete in the telecom sector.
The BSNL Chaukka 444 plan offers unlimited data with FUP at 4GB per day when users recharge their numbers with Rs 444. The validity of the new offer is 90 days. This essentially means that, under the new BSNL plan, you will be able to get 4GB data per day at less than even Rs 5.
