When other companies were one by one announcing to increase the tariff at the same time government owned BSNL also took a decision to raise the price of plans. The plans users are currently using for calling, internet services etc will get raised that is going to affect most of the users.
It was an sudden action when all the telecom operators one by one started to increase the plans. There are lot of users getting affected by this. The first telecom operator was JIO who started charging 6 paisa/minute, and after this all other’s started to raise the plans.
To save the users from sending “PORT” requests BSNL has increased the validity of one of it’s plan named “Marutham”. This plan was launched in month of july under a promotional offer to build some customers and was available till 23 Oct. The plan was only made available for Tamil Nadu and Chennai area.
The plan currently offers validity of 345 days and to keep the customers alive BSNL made a decision to increase from 345 to 365 days. As the tariff increases the customer are either broken or if they see some benefit they stay with the company. This is the reason BSNL has increased validity of the plan. Now there might be a question that if the plan was available till 23 Oct then how can the price of plan increase at this point of time.
The answer to the question is really simple, the same plan previously expiring 23 Oct is now available till 16 Jan, 2020 and it seems interesting since many users find this plan a best fit for them. The Marutham plan offers unlimited calls but capped at 250 minutes per day and 1200 SMS per day.
The company will increment balance of users whenever they send message. It was stated that 6 paisa per message sent will be given to user. To activate this offer users have to send “ACT 6 paisa” to 9478053334.
