Now suppose a subscriber using a postpaid connection with Add-ON of 2GB costing Rs 225 and by inadvertently he/she uses extra 500 MB data, then his/her additional bill for this extra data would be Rs 500 (at the rate of 1p/10KB of data). Rs 500 for 500MB of data is exorbitant but as per offer, subscriber will get 60% discount so his bill for extra data usage would become Rs 200 but it is still a bit much.
So you can see that without adding of data Add-ON, data usage is very costly and you must avoid to use extra data even BSNL offer 60% discount on its charging. For this subscribers are advised either to add high usage data Add-ON or be vigil for your data usage so that you can control it.
