State-run telecom company BSNL in recent months has been revamping its recharge plans in order to lure customers and float in the competition of tariff plans which has becomes fierce currently. After recently launched Rs 9 plan and various broadband plans, the telecom service provider has now come up with a Ramzan 2018 plan. BSNL's this new pack comes at Rs 786 and will expire on June 26, 2018. This long-validity prepaid plan offers benefits for five months, offering customers 2GB per day for the period.

Guess what! BSNL takes over against RJio with this plan, here's how. If we look at amount of recharge pack, recently RJio has raised it's Rs 799 pack offering 1.5GB data additional. Now RJio offers 6.5GB data per day for only 28 days under Rs 799. Overall, RJio is giving 182GB data for 28 days. If you look at BSNL plan, you get 2GB data per day for 5 months which is over 300GB data, which makes this plan much cheaper compared to RJio.
Now, RJio does not have 5 months data plan, but it has a recharge pack of Rs 1,999 plan which is available for 180 days. A total 125GB is given to RJio subscribers, which would mean only 0.70GB data per day, along with unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day for 180 days. This makes BSNL's new prepaid plan cheaper, heavy in data pack and also very attractive compared to RJio.
The only difference is that, RJio gives it's services in 4G network and BSNL gives in 2G/3G network. The state-run telecom service provider has also a FIFA World Cup 2018 data pack which comes at Rs 149. The plan offers 4GB data per day for 28 days, it said.
