Good news for BSNL prepaid mobile customers all over India, as the PSU now allows automatic validity extension with STVs and Combo STVs. Extension of plan validity of prepaid mobile connection is always a headache for most of the users. After the introduction of unlimited recharge offers by telecom service providers, majority of users are recharging their numbers with the most economical STV or Combo Voucher which is presently available in market.
Most of the private telecom operators had introduced mandatory minimum monthly recharge amount to make their mobile connection active. To overcome the issue of minimum monthly recharge and validity extension, BSNL now allows automatic plan validity extension with STVs or Combo Vouchers. It means, BSNL prepaid mobile customers can increase their plan validity with any STV or Combo STV of their choice. However, customers need to recharge any STV / Combo STV before the expiry date of current plan and plan validity gets extended corresponding to validity of activated STV recharged by the customer.
As per the latest information from BSNL – “Plan validity in respect of Mithram Plus, Per Minute, Per Second, Plan 108, Plan 153, Plans 186/485/666/365/997/999/1999 will be extended corresponding to validity of STV / Combo Vouchers (except for STVs 25, 58,168) recharged via CTOPUP/Online when validity of recharged STV is more than existing plan validity.”
