Also, Vodafone is offering a plan to its prepaid users for Rs. 999 wherein the user will get same facility as Airtel however the validity will be for 365 days as opposed to Airtel’s 336 days.
Ever since the centre gave a green flag for its merger with MTNL, BSNL has been doing extra to attract customers, however, will launching new plans just for couple of states really help attract customers? Other network providers have the plans which they offer on pan India level.

Should BSNL roll out the plans for all states it operates in or follow the same process and gradually roll out the plan?
