Further, the move will put further pressure on operators such as Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular to slash tariffs.
BSNL chairman and managing director Anupam Shrivastava told TOI that the telco will also come up with lifetime free-voice plans from the New Year as part of fresh offerings. He added that the telco’s new plans will be lower than the Jio plan by Rs 2-4.

“We estimate that a large amount of time is spent at home, and so here we can ride on our wire-line operations,” Shrivastava.
Replying to a query on potential decline in revenue from voice services, Shrivastava said the company expected to make this up through new customer additions.
Currently, voice revenues contribute nearly 70% to the business of telecom operators in the country.

BSNL has a strong market penetration and significant share in many key markets such as Kerala, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Odisha, Punjab and UP. It’s average revenue per unit in Rs 120.
The 4G war has been intensifying in the country and all telecom operators are jumping on the 4G bandwagon – each trying to outdo the other. Reliance Jio gave jitters to multiple telecom operators with the launch of their 4G calling rates and the promise of giving the fastest and the (arguably) best service at the cheapest prices.

Their plans which start at just Rs 149 seemed extremely convincing and after the AGM, people could do little but talk about the device and there were long queues outside Reliance stores demanding the SIM cards. Some of the features what made Reliance Jio so popular among Indians was the fact that the service would offer free calling, unlimited SMS and really fast 4G speeds – at a price that just marginally higher than their 3G services.

However, for state run BSNL, the competition is heating up and the network connector plans to launch plans at prices even cheaper than Reliance Jio. The rates will be marginally cheaper, with a difference of Rs 3-4 but it will still make a huge difference to large data packs. Another thing BSNL plans to do differently is not restricting their offers to just 4G.

The plans will be open to 2G and 3G users also which currently are more than 4G customers as not everyone has migrated to 4G. Another difference BSNL plans to bring in is route the calls via landline. BSNL, being one of India’s leading telecom operators has an extensive coverage and network when it comes to landlines and using these for calling will mean much better network and speeds.

Reliance Jio for consumers in the first week of September and their plans and pricing are quite attractive. The Jio plans (prepaid) begin at Rs 149 for 28 days where customers get 300 MB data.

But the last plan which is for Rs 1499 offers users up to 20GB of data. That is definitely a whole lot of data. The schemes seem pretty attractive and coupled with free calling seem to be the best on offer out there.
So it will be interesting to see whether other operators such as Airtel, Vodafone and Idea also slash their tariffs. In any case, it will be a win-win situation for customers.
