Well, the rival telcos have it for a long, the state-run telecom operator is catching up. Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched a facility where you could do multiple recharges and the same will queued up one after the other.
Until now you need to wait for the plan validity to end, before recharging for the same plan or STV again. But with multiple recharges option, you could recharge for a plan multiple time before your existing prepaid plan ends. Thus, once your existing plan validity ends, the queued second plan would start automatically.
BSNL now allows multiple recharge scheme for its prepaid mobile customers. They could now recharge their account in advanced, without waiting for the expiry of their existing plan. The new facility is currently available across a limited number of BSNL prepaid voucher (PV) and special tariff voucher (STV). You could now recharge multiple times with the same PVs or STVs denomination. These recharged TVs or STVs would be queued or accumulated, which will only become active once your existing plan expires. So, that’s peace of mind from forgetting recharging your BSNL prepaid mobile.
BSNL Multiple Recharge supported PV and STV
As said earlier, BSNL multiple recharge facility is available in a limited set of PVs and STVs. This includes Plan Vouchers – PV186, PV485, PV666, PV1699. PV1999 and Special Tariff Vouchers – STV98, STV99, STV187, STV319, STV399.
You could recharge for any of the above BSNL PVs or STVs multiple times, and it will be queued up in your account. Once your existing plan expires, the queued next BSNL PV or STV would be activated automatically. You will get notification of the automatic activation via SMS.
An example would be like, let your current BSNL prepaid plan is of STV 97/Rs 97, which offers unlimited calls and data for 18 days. Now you recharge your BSNL mobile multiple times with RS 97 STV before the expiry of your existing plan. According to BSNL new multiple recharge facility, all your recharge will be queued in your BSNL account. Once your current PV or STV expires, that’s in 18 days your next recharge, or STV 97 will automatically get activated.
The new BSNL multiple recharge facility for prepaid mobile is available to the pan-India customer base in all telecom circles. You could recharge for this PVs and STVs through BSNL portal or any online or offline mobile recharge stores.
