Comparison: Best Postpaid Plans Under Rs 300 by BSNL, Jio & Vodafone
It is a given and well accepted fact that prepaid service offerings by the mobile service providers are highly beneficial to the end user. However, on the flip side, post-paid users bleed through their noses, often paying for services they do not use!
The good news is that, the situation is improving for post-paid subscribers since the last few months. Telecom companies are giving away freebies to attract customers with aptly priced tariffs and plans in the hope to not just retain current customers but also to lure new ones, and thereby expand their user base.
A few of the many attractive offers that postpaid users are offered include Amazon Prime Subscriptions, internet data carry forward on unused data etc. These user-friendly options are bound to come in handy for the many hundred post paid users in the country.
Indian government-owned BSNL too has joined the race by introducing the all-new Rs. 299 postpaid-plan, which is expected to give stiff competition to Vodafone RED basic plan and Jio’s postpaid plan of Rs.199.
BSNL Rs 299 Postpaid Plan

Under this plan, users will get to enjoy a data speed of 2G and 3G capped off at a 31 GB monthly limit.
