BSNL has removed the Rs. 10 and Rs. 20 prepaid recharge packs from online channels Such as Andhra Pradesh and Telangana telecom circles.
The state-backed telecom operator will still honour the physiological recharge vouchers to the two denominations. BSNL hasn’t given a reason for removing the two prepaid packs from online channels, however it appears to be in line with recent moves by private telecom operators such as Airtel and Vodafone Idea to ditch smaller denomination prepaid recharge packs like Rs. 20 and Rs. 30. All operators still seem to be supplying Rs. 10 prepaid recharge package.
As per an update on BSNL Andhra Pradesh site, the Rs. 10 and Rs. 20 prepaid recharge packs are now only available as physical recharge vouchers. It is uncertain if BSNL is intending to eliminate these recharge vouchers from all telecom circles within the coming weeks and months. So, for the time being, all BSNL subscribers out Andhra Pradesh and Telangana can continue to recharge their prepaid connection with Rs. 10 and Rs. 20 packs.
The Rs. 20, Rs. 30, and Rs. 50 prepaid packs have been gone for Airtel, whereas Vodafone Idea no longer offers Rs. 20 and Rs. 30 prepaid recharge packs in most telecom circles. BSNL appears to be likely to do the same but the telecom operator is to say anything officially.
The disappearance of Rs. 10 and Rs. 20. BSNL prepaid recharge packs from online stations was spotted from TelecomTalk.
