BSNL Golden Fifty Plan

After launching 3G services, BSNL is all set to initiate another round of tariff war with its 'Golden Fifty' plan.BSNL announced a new plan offering local and STD call at just 50 paise a minute across the entire network, while the charges would be 20 and 30 paise for BSNL to BSNL.


Golden Fifty plan would be available to consumers for a monthly rent of Rs 375 inclusive of taxes.It is worth mentioning here that BSNL's 'One India' plan was being offered at Rs 330 per month plus taxes and the call charges were one rupee a minute whereas in 'Golden Fifty' the charges are half.Also, all the local SMSs would also cost just 50 paise.

Even though the tariff is quite lucrative, the monthly rent is a bit of downer. Rs. 375 per month in addition to the call charges will make many think before jumping onto this scheme. We would recommend this only if you’re usage is around Rs. 500 – 600 per month.
