  BSNL now offers 3GB daily data with Rs 187 and Rs 186 Prepaid STV
Posted by: nairrk - 09-28-2019, 01:42 PM - Forum: Cellular Services - No Replies

BSNL has been giving a tough fight to private telcos. The company has been constantly revising its prepaid portfolio with new plans. BSNL introduced the new STV for Rs 187, and also brought back Rs 186 prepaid recharge voucher recently. And now the telecom operator has revised these two new STV plans and increased the daily data to 3GB. Here is everything you need to know about the new BSNL prepaid recharge plan.

BSNL Rs 187 STV prepaid plan detailed
The Rs 187 special tariff voucher offers a validity of 28 days. Users will get 250 minutes of local and national calling along with national roaming. Users will also be able to make and receive calls in Mumbai and Delhi circles where BSNL network doesn’t exist.

BSNL Rs 187 STV users will now get 3GB daily data instead of 2GB and once the limit is crossed, the speed will be throttled down the 40Kbps. As noted by TelecomTalk, users will also be eligible to take benefit of Bumper Offer which offers 2.2GB extra data. This will take the daily benefit to 4.2GB.

The BSNL prepaid recharge plan will also offer 100 free SMS daily. Lastly, users will also get free PRBT as a part of this plan. This special recharge voucher is only valid in Tamil Nadu and Chennai circles.

BSNL Rs 186 prepaid recharge plan
Now, coming to the Rs 186 plan, the benefits are similar to Rs 187 voucher. However, there are some small changes. The plan validity is for 28 days where users will be 3GB data daily instead of 2Gb. Users will also be eligible for 2.2GB extra data under Bumper Offer. Post FUP, speed will be dropped down to 40Kbps.

The change comes in the form of voucher validity, which will be 180 days. In short, the data benefits will be valid for 28 days, but for calling, users will be charged on the basis of “per minute plan” which will be for 180 days. To put in simple words, after 28 days, you will need to make a data top-up to get the data benefits. And for calling, you will need to do a talk time top-up recharge.

Besides these two there are other STV plans that have been revised as well, these include the Rs 192 and the Rs 118. The Rs 192 STV now offers 3GB daily data instead of 2GB and includes 250 daily calling minutes, 100 SMS per day and free PRBT with one daily national discount deal or coupon. While the Rs 118 STV now offers 500MB daily data after which speeds go down to 40 Kbps and 250 daily calling minutes with 28 days validity.

The Rs 153 plans has been revised as well with 1.5GB daily data after which speeds go down to 40 Kbps. It now has unlimited calling without any daily cap to any network with 100 SMS per day for 28 days.

Posted by: nairrk - 09-28-2019, 07:36 AM - Forum: Cellular Services - No Replies

Service provider Vodafone has a lot of plans that we frequently talk about, but not the ‘All Rounder Packs’. Today we will be speaking about the plans that provide all round benefits from the company. These packs do exactly as their name suggests, which means they offer all round benefits. The Vodafone ‘All-Rounder Packs’ cover all needs of the prepaid customers including data, calling benefits and talk time. All-Rounder Packs cost less than the Unlimited recharges that come with a daily FUP.

What is interesting is that the new All-Rounder Packs are all below the price of Rs 300. This is ideal for people who are using these packs for a backup number and just want to extend the validity of their plans. This means that they can spend less money and can still retain all the facilities that they require from the temporary number.

Vodafone All-Rounder Packs
The cheapest of the All-Rounder Packs from Vodafone comes for Rs 15. This does not offer any data, but it does decrease the local, national and roaming charges on the phone to 30paisa per minute. It has a validity of 3 days.

Next is the Rs 29 prepaid plan which also offers 30paisa per minute local, national and roaming calling. This also does not have any data with it and lasts for 7 days. Up next are the Rs 35 and Rs 39 packs that offer Rs 26 talktime and Rs 30 talktime respectively 100MB data. There is also the Rs 45 prepaid plan that offers Rs 45 talktime and 100MB data along with 1paisa per minute local, national and roaming calling.

Up next are the Rs 65, Rs 69 and Rs 95 All-Rounder Packs. The Rs 65 plan offers 60paisa per minute local, national and roaming calling, along with Rs 55 talktime and 200MB data. The Rs 69 plan comes with 150 local and STD minutes along with 250MB data and 100 SMS every day. The Rs 95 plan offers 60paisa per minute local, national and roaming calling Rs 95 talktime and 500MB data. All these packs last 28 days.

The two costliest All-Rounder Packs from Vodafone are the Rs 145 and Rs 245 plans. The Rs 145 plans offers 30paisa per minute local, national and roaming calling with Rs 145 talktime and 1GB data for 42 days. While the Rs 245 plan offers 30paisa per minute local, national and roaming calling along with Rs 245 talktime and 2GB data for 84 days.

Posted by: nairrk - 09-26-2019, 10:39 AM - Forum: Television Programs - No Replies

MUMBAI: Zee Cinema is all set to premiere murder mystery ‘Badla’ on 29th September at 12 pm. The critically acclaimed crime thriller has been a box office hit with collections of Rs. 88 crore.

Renowned filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh who has helmed suspense thrillers like Kahaani and Teen, tells the story of ‘Badla’ in a puzzling kind of way, letting the viewers think that they know what’s going on, but tears their expectation apart with a new shocking truth.

Cleverly written thriller, Badla narrates the story of an accused lady who finds herself in a maze of situation and her only hope to get out of it is her lawyer. Produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, Badla features Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu who will be seen in a lawyer and victim relationship once again. The films also stars Amrita Singh, Tony Luke, Manav Kaul, Denzil Smith, and Tanveer Ghani.

Zee Hindi Movies Cluster Business Head Ruchir Tiwari said, “Zee Cinema has always strived to bring to our audience content that is wholesome and entertaining. This very mantra sets us apart from the competition in the Hindi movies channel genre. Badla is one such film, where the plot is very engaging, as it gets the viewer involved. The audience looks for clues and wants to solve the mystery even before the movie ends. With a stellar star-cast, a tight script and beautiful cinematography, Badla is a movie that will keep the views at the edge of their seats making it a perfect weekend watch.”

“Badla has proven that good stories irrespective of the genre continue to attract viewers, it was great to see audiences accept Badla in a big way. The world television premiere of Badla on Zee Cinema will take the movie to a larger audience and we are excited to bring it to television after its immense success in movie theatres,” says Red Chillies Entertainment chief revenue officer Gaurav Verma.

Set against the backdrop of Glasgow’s icy air, Badla narrates the story of Naina Sethi (Taapsee Pannu), a dynamic young entrepreneur, who is under house arrest for a crime that according to her she hasn’t committed. Naina claims that she is being framed for it by someone hinting to Rani (Amrita Singh) who has been questioning Naina for her son’s whereabouts. To prove her innocence, she hires Badal Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan), an attorney with a track record of winning every case in 40 years of his career.

While he wants to win this case as well, he has only three hours to uncover the facts and prove Naina’s innocence. Hence, Badal tells Naina to pay attention to all the minute details and tell the truth behind the fateful night of the murder that took place in a locked room of a hotel. With the story unfolding, various characters and truth comes into light which will keep the viewers guessing about the real killer and their motive.
