Additionally, customers will enjoy hello tunes for a whole year with this plan. Another thing to note is that currently this plan has been rolled out in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle only. Additionally, subscribers opting for the Rs. 1,312 recharge are not allowed to avail the benefits of full talk through top-ups of the denomination of Rs. 500, Rs. 1,100, Rs. 1,500, Rs. 2,000, Rs. 2,200, Rs. 2,500, and Rs. 3,000.

BSNL has announced a promotional offer under which the state-owned telco is providing up to 4GB of additional data as well as additional talk time with its prepaid combo STV recharge packs. The offer is valid on Rs. 252, Rs. 402, Rs. 175, and Rs. 219 STVs from BSNL.
