BSNL, the state owned Telecom Operator, has finally brought the much needed revival of its SMS Packs for its customers across India. BSNL was offering 3-4 SMS Packs earlier but they had a confusing/stupid limit dividing the total SMS in the package.
From today onwards, there would be no such restriction and along with this, now you would be able to send SMS while in Roaming as well. A Total of 3 New SMS Packs has been introduced priced economically at Rs. 36, Rs. 46 & Rs. 56. The old SMS Packs are withdrawn completely and SMS Pack 21 has been revised.
The new SMS Packs starting from Rs. 36 offer 3000 Local/National/Roaming SMS for 30 days, Rs. 46 SMS pack offer 4500 Local/National/Roaming SMS for 45 days & Rs. 56 SMS Pack offer 6000 Local/National/Roaming SMS for 60 days.
|Particulars||MRP of the Pack||Validity||Benefits|
|SMS Pack 36||36||30||3000 Local/National/Roaming SMS|
|SMS Pack 46||46||45||4500 Local/National/Roaming SMS|
|SMS Pack 56||56||60||6000 Local/National/Roaming SMS|
In case you are not a SMS Person but you need to send SMS occasionally, you can take up Rs. 14 SMS Pack that offers Local/National SMS @ Rs. 05p/SMS. The only SMS Pack that has been retained but revised is SMS Pack 21 that used to offer 1000 Local SMS, would NOW Offer 1500 Local SMS with a validity of 15 days.
These SMS Packs are for all 2G as well as 3G customers. Also you can get these SMS Pack activated on your mobile by sending a Simple SMS to 53733 thereby saving a little in form of Service Tax. For e.g., for SMS Pack 36, you need to send, “SMS36” to 53733. (Please send it without quotes)
