Accumulation of Unutilized Data usage & Data Carry Forwad in BSNL 3G/2G Prepaid Data STVs: Doubts & Clarifications

Lots of misleading news and rumours are currently circulating in social media and in news papers about BSNL's Unused Data Carry forward facility. Currently BSNL allows accumulation and carry forward facility of unutilized data, only for prepaid 3G/2G data STVs of same MRP.

Accumulation of Unutilized Data usage in BSNL 3G/2G Prepaid Data STVs: Doubts & Clarifications

It means, the balance data left in the previous data STV cannot be carried forward by recharging another data STV having different MRP within the validity period.  As we reported in February 2015, BSNL issued orders to stop the data carry forward facility in GSM Prepaid Mobile Services.

Later in May 2015, after getting feedback from Customers and field units, BSNL decided to continue the accumulation and carry forward facility of unused data. In addition, BSNL Corporate office instructed all nodal billing centers to allow accumulation of unutized data for all prepaid mobile customers of BSNL in all the four telecom zones.

Following this order, all other telecom zones except West Zone, successfully implemented the Data accumulation and carried forward facility. West Zone has not implemented this facility due to technical limitations.

As per the latest information from BSNL sources, accumulation of unutilized data and data carry forward facility is available for all prepaid mobile customers of BSNL except those from West Zone. West Zone Circles include - Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhyapradesh and Chattisgarh.

What is data accumulation and carry forward facility of unutilized data ?

Case 1
For example, Customer X activates data STV of Rs 68/- allowing him to use 1 GB data with validity of 7 days. If X uses only 700 MB data and activates another data STV of same MRP (Rs 68/-) on say 6th day, he will get 1 GB + 300 MB (unused data) for the next 7 days.

It is important to note that, accumulation of Data STVs of different denominations is not possible. Only Data STVs of same MRP will be accumulated.

Case 2
In the above case, if Customer X activates data STV of Rs 68/- allowing him to use 1 GB data with validity of 7 days. If X uses only 700 MB data and activates another data STV of MRP Rs 57/- (having 30 days validity) on say 6th day, he may not get his unused data (300MB) carried forward with the new data STV 57 for the next 30 days.

In such cases, Customer will get two different data STV accounts having different validity periods. When the customer is using mobile data, his / her data usage will be debited from that account whose validity will expire first.

In the above example, if a customer activates Data STV 68 and Data STV 57 together, his / her data usage will be initially debited from Data STV68. Data will be debited from STV 57 only after the expiry of Data STV68.

  3. ബിഎസ്എൻഎല്ലിന്റെ ജനപ്രിയ ഓഫറുകൾ ഇല്ലാതാകേണ്ടത് സ്വകാര്യ സേവനദാദാക്കളുടെ ആവശ്യമാണ്. ബി എസ് എൻ എൽ ഡാറ്റാ, വോയ്സ് പ്ലാനുകളുടെ കാലാവധി തുടർച്ചയായി കുറക്കുക വഴി പല പ്ലാനുകളും അനാകർഷകമാക്കാൻ കഴിഞ്ഞിട്ടുണ്ട്. ഉദാ. ഡാറ്റാ 68 & 139, വോയ്സ് 135. ഇതിൽ വോയ്സ് 135 ബി എസ് എൻ എല്ലിന് വളരെയധികം പോർട്ടിംഗ് ഉപഭോക്താക്കളെ നേടിക്കൊടുത്തിരുന്നു. ബി എസ് എൻ എൽ 3ജി വേഗത പ്രധാന നഗരങ്ങളിൽ പരിതാപകരമാണ്. കൂടാതെ 3ജി സേവന പരിധി വ്യാപിപ്പിക്കുന്നില്ല. ഇതെല്ലാം ആരെ സഹായിക്കാനാണ്?

  5. Quite informative! So far the best site I've seen of this kind. For instance, the same news is depicted without additional information on different denominations case in so many sites. All of them are just like a copy paste, whereas this one stands out different. Gonna follow. Thanks!
