The unlimited calling benefit is also available when roaming in Mumbai and Delhi circles. BSNL has also bundled 100 daily SMS. Talking about data benefits. BSNL has bundled 1GB high-speed 3G internet access. Now, the plan has one small catch though. The freebies, such as data, SMS and calling benefits are only applicable for 24 days. However, the plan is valid for 180 days. This means, you can continue receiving incoming calls for 180 days. BSNL prepaid users can subscribe to this plan by sending an SMS – PLAN 151 – and sending it to 123. As Telecom Talk notes, the plan is only available for subscribers in Tamil Nadu and Chennai circles.
